    Trump says stock-rallying reports of lifting Chinese trade 'sanctions' were premature

    President Trump in comments Saturday said stock-rallying reports this week that trade talks with China would include the lifting of tariffs against the world's second-largest economy weren't true. The president referred to those tariffs as "sanctions" on Saturday. "Things are going very well with China and with trade," he said to reporters. "There were some false reports about sanctions being removed. We have taken in tremendous amounts of money into the United States because of the sanctions and we'll see how it goes. And if we make a deal, certainly we wouldn't have sanctions...," he said, expressing general optimism for progress. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter, that the idea of lifting tariffs in part or whole was proposed by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a series of strategy meetings. The report added that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer is concerned that any concession could be seen as a sign of weakness, however. Trade issues have been cited as the biggest headwind for stocks rallying in 2019 and the reported tariff removal pushed stock averages to session highs Thursday when the headlines hit.

    Stocks Climb Farther As Fears of Economic Slowdown Subside

    U.S. stocks climbed Friday, notching their fourth consecutive week of gains, as the fears of an economic slowdown that gripped markets in December have subsided in the new year. Data showing a healthy labor market, as well as signals from central bankers that the Federal Reserve will be flexible with monetary policy, have offered relief to investors who were spooked late last year that the Fed’s pace of interest-rate increases could jolt an economy on shaky footing. “Investor sentiment has really improved from the turmoil just before Christmas,” said Brian Jacobsen, multisector strategist at Wells Fargo Asset Management.

    Mnuchin flew on Milken's private aircraft in December: report

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin flew from Washington to Los Angeles on Michael Milken's private jet, according to a report Friday in The New York Times. Milken is the Wall Street bond trader who went to prison after pleading guilty to securities fraud charges. A Treasury spokesman said Mnuchin has already reimbursed Milken for the cost of the flight and said he did not need an ethics waiver for the trip. Mnuchin's use of military aircraft for domestic travel caused some controversy early in his term. Last year, Treasury's inspector general said Mnuchin's staff had not provided complete proof about why the Treasury secretary needed to use military aircraft. Mnuchin had asked to use a government jet on his European honeymoon, but later withdrew the request.

    The Dow is now within striking distance of its 200-day moving average

    A powerful four-day rally on Friday has helped to drive U.S. stock benchmarks to multiweek highs, but the degree by which sentiment has improved since a rough 2018 is perhaps best exemplified by the moves in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The Dow on Friday afternoon was up more than 320 points at 24,694, a gain of 1.3%, climbing nearly 700 points in the past several days. That move has placed the blue-chip gauge within reach of its 200-day long-term average at 24,968.10, according to FactSet data. That's a surprising burst higher for the Dow which only Thursday closed above its 50-day moving average, then at 24,346, for the first time since Dec. 3. Moving averages are used by market technicians to help gauge bullish and bearish momentum in an asset over the long and short term. Trading above its 200-day would help to signal that the Dow, and the rest of the stock market, is re-establishing some semblance of structure after all three indexes, including the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite Index ended 2018 with their worst annual declines since 2008. Those declines also saw the Dow form a death cross, where the 50-day - a short-term trend tracker - crosses below the 200-day, used to determine a long-term trend in an asset, formed on Dec. 18. The recent updraft has been attributed to a series of stories indicating that a lasting problem for the stock market and the global economy--a trade spat between China and the U.S.--may be near a resolution.

    Dow jumps 1.5% amid report that China open to extending $1 trillion-a-year olive branch on trade

    U.S. stock indexes Friday midday clambered higher after a report from Bloomberg said Chinese officials were open to eliminating an imbalance with the U.S. that has been a source of trade tension between the two largest economies in the world and a major headwind for stocks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 368 points, or 1.5% at 24,734, the S&P 500 index advanced 1.5% at 2,674, while the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.4% at 7,181. Bloomberg on Friday, citing sources familiar with talks, reported that China has offered to go on "a six-year buying spree to ramp up imports from the U.S., in a move that would reconfigure the relationship between the world's two largest economies." China would increase purchases of U.S. imports over six years to reach more than $1 trillion per year, according to the report, which comes a day after the Wall Street Journal reported that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had debated eliminating China tariffs as a tactic toward advancing talks on their protracted trade dispute and easing tensions. However, a Treasury spokesman has walked back that story, saying that discussions continue and no decisions have been made. Trade issues have been the greatest source of friction for stock markets here and abroad, market participants have said.
