It looks like there is another session of gains in store for Wall Street, with DJIA futures up by 120 points and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq ahead by over 0.5%. The advance comes despite the latest trade war comments from President Trump, who said that if Chinese President Xi Jinping did not attend the G-20 meeting later this month, there would be additional duties "immediately" levied on Chinese goods. "The China deal is going to work out. You know why? Because of tariffs," he told CNBC. "Right now, China is getting absolutely decimated by companies that are leaving China, going to other countries, including our own, because they don’t want to pay the tariffs."
