The U.S. stock market indexes increased after China announced that it was ready to find the solution which would be acceptable for both sides. The trade war between the U.S. and China dates back to 2018. However, it is far from being over. The trade war between the biggest economies is a global problem.

It is important to remember that the U.S. has the largest economy in the world. China’s economy is the second-largest economy. The trade dispute between the two economic superpowers has the potential to disrupt the stock market. However, the situation might change in the nearest future.
