The US benchmarks on Thursday rallied on the news that a Sino/US trade deal was imminent and being constructed to prevent tariffs kicking in on the looming China tariff deadline. A late confirmation of a flow of prior bullish headlines sealed rhe deal for Wall Street's bulls.
US President Donald Trump originally tweeted that the States was “getting VERY close to a BIG DEAL with China”. This was then backed up from a report in the Wall Street Journal detailing how US negotiators were going to offer to slash existing tariffs, which cover roughly $360 billion of Chinese goods, by 50% and how the US was also willing to cancel the next round of China tariffs, planned to take effect on another $156 billion of Chinese goods on December 15. Then, lastly, Bloomberg TV announced that the US reached a deal in principle with China that now awaited Trump's signing. Wall Street cheered the good news all day long into the close.
