NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 12, 2018 / U.S. equities finished lower on Tuesday after bouncing between the red and green territory. The stocks gained more than 1% across the board on improving U.S.-China trade relations. Bloomberg news reported that China plans on cutting down tariffs on cars made in U.S., from the current 40% to 15%. However, stocks started moving in the opposite direction on the news of a contentious fight between President Donald Trump and Democratic leadership over border security. President Trump’s threat to shut down the government weighed on the markets. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.22 percent to close at 24,370.24, while the S&P 500 Index decreased 0.04 percent to close at 2,636.78. The Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.16 percent to close at 7,031.83.
