Wall St. sours after Lighthizer comments on trade talks

On Wednesday, the 27th of February, 2019, the Wall Street’s three key indexes became execrable, drowned in the red, after US trade representative Robert Lighthizer had told that the Chinese delegates remained too discordant on purchasing more US goods instead being complex over six critical issues signed initially in the “memorandum of understanding”.

Wall St. faltered insidiously on Wednesday, the 27th of February, after the US President’s top trade negotiator, Lighthizer had been quoted saying in a testimony that any kind of fecund deal between the two countries must have to involve a way to spread commitments and it was too early to predict the outcome of the Sino-US trade friction.

Wall St. alongside, global markets started on a weaker footing on Wednesday, as tensions had been growing between India & Pakistan, and a latest US-North Korean Summit started to whistle in Vietnam. While preparing this report, the Wall St.

had been in agony and Dow posted a dreading downturn of 0.21 percent to 26,002.89 and the Standard & Poor 500 remained jejune most of the day, posting a plunge of 0.09 percent to 2,791.47, while the Nasdaq Composite remained guileless as well, reporting a slight slide of 0.02 percent to 7,547.56.

Citing a salubrious deal had yet not been boarded, managing director of institutional sales trading, at Robert W. Baird in Milkwaukee, Michael Antonelli said, “He (Lighthizer) was certainly talking as if a deal isn’t imminent.

There is a push and pull around the S&P at the 2,800 level. Negative comments from Lighthizer doesn’t help and the fact that the whole Street is looking for a pause doesn’t help either. ”
