Wednesday’s Factors and Events
Global stocks were lower following a separate report that indicated U.S. lawmakers are working on a new bill that would bar the use of federal funds to buy Chinese buses and railcars, a move likely to complicate efforts for a partial trade U.S.-China deal.
Sources close to the talks told the South China Morning Post that “it is growing increasingly unlikely that a U.S.-China trade deal will be completed this week,” though the same officials also said they expected a delay of additional tariffs to give the world’s two-largest trading partners more time to work out a deal.
