Markets are slightly lower this morning after another record breaking day in the U.S. stock market on Thursday. Markets rallied after a Chinese official said that the U.S. and China have discussed rolling back tariffs, reporters were told these could happen even before the first trade deal is signed. In October the two sides agreed to a preliminary deal. The Dow ended up 0.7%, 182 pts and the S&P 500 up.03%, both were new all-time closing highs. Priscilla Thiagamoorthy, an analyst at BMO stated “”For almost two years now, the US/China trade tussle has posed the biggest headwind to global growth. But with promising signs of progress on the trade front, a shift in global central banks to easing (including three consecutive rate cuts by the Fed this year), and mostly better-than-expected corporate profits, US stocks were pushed to all-time highs,”

Support is checking in today at 307300 and 305900 with resistance showing 309900 and 311200.
