American futures go up notwithstanding political uncertainty

On Wednesday, American futures managed to gain because market participants generally neglected political uncertainty and also looked ahead to economic reports.

The S&P 500 futures acquired 0.29% being worth 2,780.75, Dow futures inched up 0.36% hitting 25,139.0. Additionally, tech heavy Nasdaq 100 futures rallied 0.45% reaching 7,115.25.

Donald Trump is all geared up towards imposing duties on Chinese imports. The given duties would be mostly dealing with telecommunications and technology sectors.

The news showed up a week after the US President imposed shocking duties on aluminum and steel. However, Mexico and Canada have appeared to be an exception because the Trump administration would like to have a trade deal negotiated. More duties could potentially enhance worries of a global trade conflict and also put pressure on investor appetite for risky assets.

Market participants are still digesting information that on Tuesday Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in favor of CIA Director Mike Pompeo. On Tuesday, financial markets concluded in the negative in the face of the political instability.
