Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) rallying strongly as Donald Trump and China prime markets for a possible trade deal

The stock market bounced aggressively on the news that Trump and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will meet tomorrow in the White House as the “surprise” teased by Larry Kudlow comes to fruition. Additionally, a soft US CPI number gave Dow bulls confidence that the Fed will be able to continue to cut rates aggressively.

Turkish aggression in Syria and the arrest of two Giuliani allies by Trump’s own administration over illegal campaign finance tactics in Ukraine are lurking tail risks so far being ignored by markets.

Momentum Indicators
