The two super economies the US and China will probably publish an intermediate model of trade agreement before Sunday's deadline for the additional taxes on Chinese goods that are due to start. This event according to experts is going to encourage the financial markets and create a risk appetite.

The senior market strategist at Slatestone Wealth Kenny Polcari said that there will be an “eleventh-hour” notification regarding an agreement on Saturday night. He told CNBC’s “Street Signs”

“They’re going to come out and say ‘we’ve got a deal ... we’re working on tweaking, fine-tuning it. But, to show good faith, we’re not going to impose these tariffs.’ And then the markets will rally”.

US stocks fall


On Tuesday US stocks dropped while an imminent US-China trade deadline discouraged investors. The popular tech-driven Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.1% to 8,616.1, pulled down by Netflix.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended more than 27 points lower, or 0.1% at 27,881.7. The S&P 500 too lost 0.1% to end at 3,1321. China and the US have until Sunday to develop a so-called phase one trade agreement. If an agreement is not reached by then, new US taxes will take effect.
