DOWJONES - 17 August 2018


Fundamental Highlights

U.S. stocks rallied overnight, closing firmly higher than the previous session with the Dow reaching its best day in 4 months all thanks to strong corporate earnings. Hopes that the U.S. and China may resolve their trade bickering after reports said China would send a delegation to the United States later in August for further trade talks. Following these reports, Treasury prices fell and equities rose as investors rotated from bonds into stocks, suggesting that a greater appetite for riskier assets are returning.
