NEW YORK (Reuters) - The S&P 500 and the Dow industrials ended little changed on Friday after hitting record highs earlier in the session, as the United States and China announced an initial trade agreement, cooling tensions that have rattled markets.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) rose 3.46 points, or 0.01%, to 28,135.51, the S&P 500 (SPX) gained 0.2 points, or 0.01%, to 3,168.77 and the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) added 17.56 points, or 0.2%, to 8,734.88.

The US should put bigger tariffs on China until they end the forced ****policy and slave labor camps and the attacks on Churches currently escalating in China. God given human rights like we have in the US constitution; other countries need to adhere to if they want Favorable trade with us. the value of a stock market cannot compare to the value of a human being.

Let’s see here...”We’ll totally gut Obamacare.” Never happened. “We’ll have a middle class tax cut.” Never happened. “Mexico will pay for the wall.” Never happened. “We have a beautiful deal with North Korea.” Never happened. And now. “The Phase 1 trade deal with China has been agreed to.” Believe it when I see it. All lies.

Barnum Bailey Circus is alive and well. More laughs from our laughable President's Cabinet and staff. Alas, they don't care about whom they support.

Al these parody is unbelievably, from both sides actors and public. Both are acting, one side lying and entertaining and the other believing and trying to understand. Really? This is just liquidity, alvos and free press. All in a cocktail.

My prediction has come true, US and Chinese agreed on not to further escalating additional tariff, but the situation now is not any better than that. There is no actual signing about de-escalation of any tariff (even though Trump said otherwise). My guess is that Investors would buy this kind of pump that Trump tweeted and market will rally for several days, until it exhausted and realized nothing substantial about de-escalation of tariff. It is just the same situation for months, same tariff, no less, no more. Just more Hopium talks from Trump.

It seems the deal was already baked into the market.  Basically the threat of Tariffs are still there but it's seems to be a diminishing market manipulation tool...

Trump tweeted that they agreed to do a deal. What kind of deal? The US agrees to stop raising tariffs and to cut existing tariffs by half. In exchange, China agrees to buy US agricultural goods with the actual quotas to be set as part of the "phase 2" deal to be announced around November of next year.
