Wall Street gains as trade hopes build

US indices pushed higher yesterday on hopes that a US-China Phase 1 deal will be coming soon. The SPX500 and NAS100 indices hit record highs, by a whisker, while the US30 index lagged. Hong Kong shares were boosted by a peaceful election. Powell said the Fed is strongly committed to a 2% inflation target, which might imply rates will not be raised anytime soon.
