NEW YORK | Stocks rise again as investors hope for trade breakthrough
NEW YORK —Jan 08, 2019—Stocks climbed for the third day in a row Tuesday as the latest round of trade talks between Washington and Beijing continued. It’s the longest winning streak for U.S. indexes since late November.
News reports said the trade negotiations would be extended to a third day, a potential positive sign even though no major developments have been announced so far. Experts say it will take months for them to resolve the causes of the trade war, which include disagreements over Beijing’s handling of technology and intellectual property.
