NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. markets experienced a bullish week, which continuously pushed the three main indexes to record highs throughout the week. On Monday, markets were lifted after Friday's announcement from Washington and Beijing said that they had made progress in defusing the trade tensions and U.S. officials mentioned that a deal could be signed within the month. Then, on Tuesday morning, the markets continued to rally as investors looked to extend record gains from Monday. However, markets closed relatively flat on Tuesday as investors continued to digest the ongoing negotiations. As part of the "phase one" deal, China is pushing for the U.S. to remove more of its enforced tariffs. However, on Wednesday, markets slightly slid after reports emerged that a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping could be delayed until December, according to Reuters, citing a senior official of the Trump Administration. Nonetheless, investors continued to hold on to an optimistic view that a deal between the two nations could be reached. Then on Thursday, the three indexes hit record highs once again as U.S. markets were stimulated after reports that Beijing and Washington will cancel planned import tariffs in stages.
