Wednesday’s Factors and Events
Investors also looked ahead to a meeting in Washington between President Donald Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. The two leaders are expected to discuss improving transatlantic trade relations among other subjects.

Last week, the EU’s Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said that if the U.S. imposed these levies, it would be “very unfortunate,” and added that the bloc had prepared its own list of countermeasures.
