$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $RUTX, $VXX

Thursday, US stocks spiked on expectations of a de-escalation in trade tensions after Washington and Beijing agreed to hold high-level talks in early October, while at the same time strong US economic data eased fears of a domestic slowdown.

The ADP National Employment Report, considered a precursor to the Labor Department’s more comprehensive jobs report, showed US private employers’ payrolls grew at the fastest pace in 4 months in August, led by big gainers in service-sector jobs.

Another private survey showed growth in US services sectors accelerated in August, rebounding from its weakest level in about 3 years, as new orders rose to their highest mark since February.

The upbeat reports eased concerns of an economic downturn, which was exacerbated by data Tuesday that showed a contraction in US factory activity in August.

Investors will keep a close watch on the Key NFPs data due Friday.
