American futures gain on hope of US-China trade negotiations

On Tuesday, American futures managed to gain because expectations that China and America will have trade hostilities toned down brought the S&P and Nasdaq to all-time maximums.

Chinese and American officials are anticipated to meet on Wednesday and Thursday in Washington with the aim of discussing trade disagreements, before the latest round of trade duties come true.

However, US leader told Reuters that he doesn’t expect much progress from these negotiations, dampening hopes that a compromise will be reached before the duty deadline.

In addition to this, a number of retailers are anticipated to post their revenue before the opening bell. Among them will be Kohl’s Corporation as well as TJ Maxx parent company - TJX Companies.
