Traditional Markets

This morning, US trade secretary Larry Kudlow is doing his best to sell the market on the story that the phase one trade deal is coming along well and it looks like it’s working.

Of course, anyone who looks past the headlines can easily see that the US and China still have a large gap in their expectations. Nevertheless, stock indices are testing their all-time highest levels today.
