What drives the market?
Late Monday, Democratic and Republican lawmakers said an agreement had been reached to avert another detrimental government's suspension. Desperate to avoid the recurrence of such a scenario, GOP dealers agreed on a framework agreement that would mean much less money for President Donald Trump's border wall than the White House desired.
The preliminary agreement, involving 55 miles of new border fence, still requires Trump approval, which told a rally in El Paso, Texas that "progress is being made with this committee." He added, "Just so you know, we're building the wall anyway." Trade negotiations entered another day on Tuesday in Beijing, with Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer arriving Thursday for more high-level discussions. One o'clock at 12:01 o'clock Eastern time March 2 deadline runs for an agreement to be reached between the two countries.
