    Dow shakes off trade-war angst to end 180 points higher after Fed minutes, ahead of jobs report

    U.S. stocks finished Thursday's trade solidly higher--a day after the Fourth of July break--as investors appeared to dismiss worries about an impending deadline on trade between the U.S. and China, and the release of minutes from the Federal Reserve that acknowledged the potential for tariff disputes to harm domestic economic expansion. An account of the June meeting from the policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee's two-day convention ended June 13 pointed to unease over trade clashes that could hold back economic growth but not sufficiently to prevent the Fed from hiking benchmark interest rates. Meanwhile, the U.S. is scheduled to impose tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports Friday, and China is expected to counter with corresponding tariffs on U.S. imports in less than 24 hours, marking a mounting tit-for-tat conflict between the world's largest economies that has threatened to rattle global markets.
