European markets might grow a little in anticipation of a fresh round of trade talks between the US and China.
Previously, European traders felt rather downbeat, as they feared that a new portion of tariffs would be slapped on the Chinese imports to the US. But now investors have become hopeful that the US-China trade conflict will finally be resolved positively.
After China announced it would seek WTO permission to impose sanctions on the US, the news appeared that the two countries are getting ready for a fresh round of talks to tackle the trade issues between them.
European markets will also be underpinned by the growing oil prices that have neared $80 per barrel of Brent crude on apprehensions that Iranian oil supply might slump. The strong oil prices are likely to fuel the growth across the European oil and gas stocks that will be pushing higher the stock indices.
Meanwhile, the British investors are keeping an eye on the Brexit news. And even though the talks between the UK and the EU have been quite successful, traders still have quite a lot of fears in this regard, like that the UK food exports to EU may be stalled by no-deal Brexit. For instance, about 10% of the animal products exports from the UK will probably be stopped at the border due to the UK authority’s inability to get its product export certificates validated by other countries.
