Thursday’s Factors and Events
Earlier Trump and Kim, seated together at a conference table, appeared confident about the prospect of improving diplomatic relations. But, the pair were ultimately unable to agree after the U.S. refused North Korean demands for sanctions relief.
“They wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety and we couldn’t do that,” Trump said at a news conference.
The U.S. president said no plans had been made for a third summit.
On the data front, a first reading of fourth-quarter real GDP will be released at around 8:30 a.m. ET. Chicago PMI figures for February and Kansas City Federal Reserve’s latest survey are both set to follow later in the session.
