This confirms President Donald Trump's earlier assertion via Twitter posts Thursday that "China is expected to buy large quantities of our agricultural products."

Such a move will give some respite to American peasants, which has become one of the biggest harms in the trade war with China. It will also be seen as an important gesture of goodwill, with Trump repeatedly crippling Beijing for failing to follow the pledges, including major purchases of US farm products. The country had closed its purchases in August in an apparent retaliatory move after Trump announced additional tariffs on Chinese imports.

Risk weights have responded positively to the trend, with US stocks on rails for a third week's advance, as trading fears at least temporarily. The S&P 500 ended Thursday's session near a record high, reaching within 1% of the record industry reached in July.

Retail sales increased more than expected in August

A broad target for retail sales rose to a larger-than-expected interest rate in August, driven by sales from internet dealers, builders and car dealers.

<p class = "canvas atom canvas text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = "The retail headline increased 0.4% in August, & nbsp; Commerce Department reported Friday, compared to an expected gain of 0.2%, according to Bloomberg Compiled Data. "data-reactid =" 27 "> Retail Sales Headline rose 0.4 % in August, the Department of Commerce reported Friday, against the expected gain of 0.2%, according to Bloomberg compiled data.

Apart from sales of cars and gas, retail sales rose only 0.1% for the month, missing expectations of a 0.2% gain and coming off a 0.9% increase in July. Excluding sales of motor vehicles and parts, retail sales were flat for the month, against an expected increase of 0.1% and an increase of 1.0% in July.

August figures come on the heels of a much stronger than expected July report, as retail sales rose 0.8% up for the month. July's gains had been broad-based, driven by strong sales from e-commerce platforms, grocery stores and clothing retailers.

While Friday's report marked a withdrawal from print in July, the results still point to intact consumer activity even in the midst of an ongoing trade war and fears of a financial downturn. Consumer spending drives around 70% of US economic output, and retail sales account for about 25% of personal consumption expenditure.

Commerce Department's latest retail report is the last major piece of financial data before the Federal Reserve begins its next two-day policy meeting on Tuesday.
