Futures indicate the S&P/ASX 200 Index will rise half a per cent, or 34 points, on Monday. On Wall Street, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average rose more than 1 per cent, and the Euro Stoxx 50 index rose more than 2 per cent, when Chinese Vice Premier Liu He and President Donald Trump convened in the oval office to present a united front on Friday.
Hong Kong’s Hang Seng is on track for a 0.75 per cent lift and China’s CSI 300 a gain of 1.35 per cent. US 10-year Treasury yields sold off by 6 basis points to 1.73 per cent.
“The deal that we’re seeing now is a reflection of the political incentives that are facing Donald Trump today,” Montaka Global chief investment officer Andrew Macken said.
“It’s pretty clear Trump’s priority right now is to be re-elected in November 2020, everybody knows one of the most important factors of any president being re-elected is a strong economy, and we’ve just started to see in the last few months the trade dispute with China has started to be felt in the US.”

A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 20 white candles and 30 black candles for a net of 10 black candles.
A rising window occurred (where the top of the previous shadow is below the bottom of the current shadow). This usually implies a continuation of a bullish trend.
