US equities point to surge

In Washington, official delegations of the United States and China are trying to find a way out of the trade conflict between the two leading nations. On Thursday, American officials told that China agreed to change the surplus of trade with the United States due to the annual acquisition of US goods worth about $200 billion, although the Chinese authorities denied the very existence of such a pact.

In recent months, both countries have uncovered the introduction of tariffs on each other's goods.
