American equities start higher

On Monday, American stock index futures started higher due to the fact that Mexico and the United States were getting closer to a trade pact. It contributed to optimism about the US economy after recent reassuring remarks from Fed Chair Jerome Powell.

Mexican and US trade talks are expected to result in a common position on the North American Free Trade Agreement.  Ildefonso Guajardo, Mexican Economy Minister told that negotiations have kept making progress. Negotiations are scheduled to restart on Monday.

Market sentiment was also underpinned by the fact the US government put pressure on the EU to have trade talks speeded up.

As a matter of fact, ET, Dow e-minis managed to ascend by 0.54%. Additionally, S&P 500 e-minis tacked on by 0.39%, Nasdaq 100 e-minis soared by 0.5%.

Pfizer soared by 0.9% having told that its rare-heart disease drug managed to diminish the risk of death by nearly 30%, thus spurring the prospects of what could be potentially a billion-dollar-a-year medication.

Chipotle Mexican Grill slumped by 1.4% after Wedbush had its equities downgraded, referring to higher risks to the burrito chain's near-term same-store sales as well as margin forecasts.
