Tuesday’s Factors and Events

China is reportedly set to call upon the World Trade Organization soon for authorization to inflict sanctions on the U.S., according to a meeting agenda, Reuters reported. The reason for this is because of Washington’s non-compliance with a ruling in a dispute over U.S. dumping duties that China introduced in 2013.

Boeing shares, considered a bellwether for global trade, fell 0.6 percent before the bell. Caterpillar also slipped 0.7 percent.

Stock futures also fell as tech was headed for another decline. Shares of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Tesla all fell in the premarket. Tesla’s stock dropped 2 percent after a Nomura analyst called the stock “no longer investable.”
