US-China Trade Talks Renewal Fueled Rally
After the last trade talks fell apart in May 2019, US President Donald Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping finally agreed to revive talks after speaking to each other at the G20 summit in Japan. Trump agreed to hold off from imposing the additional 25 percent tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods and ease certain restrictions on tech company Huawei. As a gesture of goodwill, China agreed to make unspecified new purchases of US agricultural products. The US-China trade ceasefire provided some much-needed relief and sent all three major US indices to close at record-high levels in a holiday-shortertened session ahead of US Independence Day.
