What is driving the market?
The markets have been heavily focused on trade negotiations between the United States and two of its key counterparts, Europe and China.
President Donald Trump is expected to make a decision within six months on whether to impose tariffs of up to 25% on European car imports. The president may also provide updates on the Beijing-Washington negotiations when he gives a speech at the New York Economic Club at noon. Eastern time.
"The White House has a call until tomorrow, and there is talk that the decision will be pushed back," wrote David Madden, market analyst at CMC Markets UK, in a daily research note, citing the decision on European car imports. "Traders are cautiously optimistic, so stocks are higher this morning."
Trade comments will be closely followed after Trump said over the weekend that discussions with China and the United States were "very good," but warned that recent reports of an agreement to roll back tariffs, as part of a preliminary trade resolution, was not accurate.
Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Deputy Mayor Richard Clarida theorized about global bond rates remaining around historically lower levels "significantly lower than the pre-crisis experience, and thus significantly closer to the effective policy rate lower than they were before the crisis," in prepared remarks on a police conference in Zurich.
Fed # 2's comments speak to challenges the Federal Open Market Committee is facing in the coming months as it weighs efforts to avert a recession, with federal fund rates of 1.50% -1.75%, after three striking cuts by political decision-makers at the same number of meetings.
Clarida's remarks come a day before Fed Chairman Jerome Powell is scheduled to speak and ask questions from lawmakers on Capitol Hill in Washington.
