Monday’s Factors and Events

The Wall Street Journal reported that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had floated the idea of easing tariffs on Chinese goods as the two countries continue to negotiate on trade. The report sent the major indexes to their session highs on Thursday. However, a senior administration official told CNBC that there is “no discussion of lifting tariffs now.”

“What we’re seeing, in terms of valuation, now that markets have recovered a lot of the lost ground, is they’re starting to become overvalued once again,” said Petra Bakosova, chief operating officer at Hull Tactical. “When the market bottomed out in December, that was a buying opportunity.”
