Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) made a sudden recovery after the Trump administration schemed to salvage the embattled U.S.-China trade deal
The Dow and broader U.S. stock market erased early losses Wednesday amid reports that the Trump administration was planning to send an envoy to Beijing to resume high-stakes trade negotiations.
DOW MAKES SURPRISE RECOVERY; S&P 500, NASDAQ FOLLOW
All of Wall Street’s major indexes turned positive in afternoon trading, erasing a volatile pre-market for Dow futures. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 180 points, or 0.7%, to 25,172.97. The blue-chip index was down by as much as 91 points earlier in the day.
The United States and China will likely resume trade negotiations soon, according to Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin.
Testifying before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee Wednesday, Mnuchin said the White House will likely send a trade envoy to Beijing to restart negotiations. The news comes less than a day after President Trump’s top trade adviser said talks with China have reached “a complete stalemate.”
The world’s two biggest economies locked horns this week after China announced retaliatory tariffs on $60 billion of additional U.S. imports. The United States responded by preparing a list of additional tariffs targeting $300 billion worth of Chinese goods.
