Dow Jones futures are lower today after a failed attempt at pushing past the all-time highs. Yesterday, the Dow Jones futures asset was able to reach an intraday high that breached the 27,000 mark. After hitting 27,168, it has pulled back to 27,056.
Earlier in the day, a report from Chinese news outlet South China Morning Post stated that US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet at the APEC summit in Chile on November 17th and will quite possibly sign off on an interim trade deal. The news outlet quoted an unnamed Chinese source in the story, which is yet to be independently verified.
The Dow did not react to this story and now looks towards the open of the US markets in less than half an hour for greater direction on the day.
