Stocks start nervously today as trade hopes fade
US indices rose yesterday on hopes China would look through the recent US blacklisting steps and make progress in the trade talks. Those gains have been wiped out in early trading this morning as China damped expectations for a broader deal. EU says they are no closer to a solution to the Irish backstop issue.
