US stocks are trading higher today following constructive US-China trade talks. Notably, US-China trade friction has been among the key factors driving markets lower this year. While broader market indices including the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DIA) are in the green today, steel stocks are taking a beating. U.S. Steel Corporation (X) and AK Steel (AKS) are down sharply. Nucor (NUE) and Steel Dynamics (STLD) are also trading lower.
