Factors that influenced the stock marketsStocks on December 23

One of the biggest factors which continue to affect the stock markets is the trade war between the U.S. and China. Recently, China and the U.S. reached a phase-one agreement. This deal will improve market sentiment in 2020.

China’s cabinet agreed to lower tariffs for all trading partners on more than 850 types of products. According to the information released by China’s Finance Ministry.

The lowered import duties will apply to frozen pork. It makes sense as China experienced problems due to the lack of swine fever that reduced the meat supplies. Moreover, tariffs on some of the products will fall to zero.

This decision will help to lower the tensions. Moreover, such decisions will have a positive impact on trade talks. The partial trade agreement will boost the economy of the respective countries. This move is the latest sign that the U.S. and China will sign the trade deal in the nearest future.

Moreover, the U.S. President is running for reelection so it in his best interest to solve the trade war as soon as possible.
