U.S. Stock Futures withdrew Monday morning as a lack of progress in China-U.S. Trade negotiations immediately took the air out of the record markets. Meanwhile, bond markets were closed for Veterans Day. Investors were waiting for speeches from President Donald Trump and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell later this week.

What is driving the market?
President Donald Trump this weekend said discussions with China and the US were "very nice" but warned that recent reports of a tariff reset agreement, as part of a preliminary trade resolution, were inaccurate. "The level of the customs elevator is wrong," Trump said Saturday at Joint Base Andrews before traveling to Tuscaloosa, Ala., Reuters reports. He did not comment on those comments.
Trump also suggested that the pace of talks was slower than he preferred, and that China had more to benefit from reaching a tariff resolution soon.
"The trade talks with China go on, I think, very nicely, and if we make the agreement that we will, it will be a good deal, and if it is not good, I will not," said President .
Investors also watched reports of clashes in Hong Kong when a month-long protest flared up. The Wall Street Journal reported that police shot and critically injured a protester when the city's commute at the start of the week was disrupted by protesters trying to block roads and delay trains. The newspaper also said a man was caught on fire in an unverified video after confronting protesters who had vandalized a subway station.
Meanwhile, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, or Sifma, has recommended the closure of the bond market in line with the US Department of State's holiday schedule.
No financial data will be provided on Monday, although investors analyzed a speech by Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren, who argued Monday that regulators around the world should raise capital buffers for large banks.
Looking ahead, Trump will speak at the New York Economic Club about trade, and Fed Chairman Powell is scheduled to appear on Wednesday for the Congress Joint Economic Committee and then in front of the House Budget Committee, a day after.
