Stocks soar on trade optimism

“Stocks closed sharply higher on Monday, bouncing back from strong losses in the previous session as trade tensions between the U.S. and China appeared to ease,” Fred Imbert and Alexandra Gibbs report for CNBC.

“The Dow Jones industrial average surged 669.40 points to 24,202.60,” Imbert and Gibbs report. “The S&P 500 gained 2.7 percent to close at 2,658.55 — bounce off its 200-day moving average — with technology and financials leading all sectors higher. The Nasdaq composite advanced 3.3 percent to 7,220.54 with Apple and Amazon both rising.”

“The Financial Times reported China has offered to buy more semiconductors from the U.S. to help cut its trade surplus with the U.S. Shares of Qualcomm and Intel rose 4.6 percent and 6.3 percent, respectively, on the news,” Imbert and Gibbs report. “The Wall Street Journal also reported that U.S. and Chinese officials are working to improve U.S. access to China’s markets.”

    I like thinking big. I always have. To me it’s very simple: if you’re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big. Most people think small, because most people are afraid of success, afraid of making decisions, afraid of winning. And that gives people like me a great advantage, — Donald J. Trump

    1. This is how he gets them to work with us. Kissing their butts has never worked and never will. They don’t know what to expect from him and it scares them.

    1. Because we knew the News Media was crying over nothing.
