What drives the market?

After meeting China's President Xi Jinping on Saturday at the G-20 leader's Japan summit, President Donald Trump said the United States would maintain today's rates, but held onto new ones. Trump also said he would lift a ban on Huawei so US companies could sell their products to the China tech group, even though the company would remain on a trading blacklist.

Trump said conversations went "even better than expected" that "we're going to work with China where we left off."

Stephen Innes, managing partner of Vanguard Markets wrote in a Sunday note that "after the markets got stuck in the trade war limbo in the better part of two months, investors would breathe a massive but exhausted sigh of relief that both the US and China chose to push the reset button and reboot trade negotiation [s]" [19659007] However, questions remain about which products US companies are allowed to sell to Huawei, while investors have little information about the timing of future trade negotiations and whether or when existing tariffs can be rolled back. The Ministry of Commerce is currently working on a reform of export licensing that respects Huawei, it tells the Wall Street Journal.

Data out of China and the world economy were less horrific, with a private gauge showing activity in China's manufacturing industry cooling in June and moving into the contraction area.

"Economic data … was universally disappointing overnight," wrote Tom Essay, president of the Sevens Report, in a Monday message to clients. "Every production PMI missed expectations this morning, including those from China, Germany, the EU and the UK. All these PMIs are now below 50, signaling widespread contraction in production activity."

The week will be broken up on Thursday's Independence Day, but investors will return Friday to important June salary data for profitability. Prior to that on Monday, the Markit Manufacturing Purchase Managers index fell due at 9:45 am, Eastern Time, followed by the Institute of Supply Management's June index at 10:00 am east, with construction expenses due at the same time.
