May 24, 2019 Headlines

Risk assets bounced off the overnight lows (SPX +.6%) and Treasuries are little changed after a week dominated by escalating trade tensions. The move higher came after President Trump suggested that Huawei Technologies, the recently blacklisted Chinese telecom company, could be included in a trade deal. However, Chinese officials told Bloomberg TV that there have not been any discussions regarding a meeting between the two countries. In Europe, Prime Minister May’s resignation did not come as a surprise after all the resistance to her Brexit deal. The fixed income market will be observing an early close at 2pm EST and reopen Tuesday morning following Memorial Day.
