NEW YORK | US stocks edge higher after huge swings in recent trading
NEW YORK —Jan 07, 2019— U.S. stocks are edging higher in early trading on Wall Street Monday after enormous swings the previous two days.
Representatives from the U.S. and China began a round of trade negotiations, and investors’ hopes that the two sides will finally make progress in talks have sent stocks higher recently. But investors remain fearful that the trade dispute is far from a resolution.
Retailers made some of the largest gains Monday while utility companies fell.
