NEW YORK | US stocks keep rising as investors hope for trade progress
NEW YORK — Jan 08, 2019—U.S. stocks are climbing Tuesday as industrial and internet companies and retailers rise, putting the S&P 500 index on track for its first three-day winning streak since late November.
The latest round of trade talks between the U.S. and China ended without word of progress, but with no evident signs of setbacks either. That was enough to clear the way for more gains for stocks.
