Tuesday’s Factors and Events
Investors appear unsure of what to make of the past couple days of trade developments, as optimism about China and the United States sitting down at the negotiating table has been tempered with some troubling signs.
The latest of the latter came Friday on news that Chinese officials wouldn’t be visiting U.S. farms as planned. That seemed to have left investors wondering how close the two sides are to overcoming their disagreements and striking a deal.
During Thursday and Friday, deputy-level negotiators from the world’s two largest economies had been holding talks apparently aimed at smoothing the way for higher level discussions next month.
