Tuesday’s Factors and Events

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said that the government was seeking to establish conditions to help meet its economic goals for 2019, Reuters reported, citing Chinese state television.
Wall Street appeared to track the upbeat sentiment in Europe and Asia. Indexes in both continents were mostly higher on the back of hopes that China would introduce more measures to support its weakening economy.
