U.S-China trade development, FOMC under watch
The stock market set to open lower today as the DJIA index futures down more than 100 points. Time is ticking for a trade deal between U.S-China before the end of week tariff implementation. Without a deal then tariff will be implemented against China’s products which will hinder trade deal.
Aside from the trade development, traders will monitor closely FOMC rate-decision this week.
