Monday’s Factors and Events

Wall Street closed lower on the back of concerns over the ongoing trade war and slower economic growth concerns. The sentiment has continued onto Monday, ahead of further trade meetings between the U.S. and the Chinese administrations later this week. Time is running out ahead of the self-imposed deadlines of March 2. Failure to reach an agreement will raise U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese to 25 percent from 10 percent.

There is also a growing focus on a potential second government shutdown, given that Democrats and Republicans remain at odds over border policy. President Donald Trump tweeted this weekend “I actually believe they (Democrats) want a shutdown.”
