Xinhua, the State News Agency for China mentioned that Chinese delegation reported a substantial progress underlining specific issues. Kit Juckes, the Currency Strategist for Societe Generale said that this postponement of trade negotiations wasn’t much of a surprise to them but this was what the market wanted to hear for quite long time.
Trump commented that he is supposed to meet the China’s President Xi Jinping for concluding an agreement, given the talks advance further. Additionally, the stock indexes for Hong Kong and Tokyo advanced by 0.5 percent while the European markets unlatched with gains similar to the markets mentioned previously.
