Stock Market Update Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020
Last night futures weren’t looking too good after White House adviser Peter Navarro indicated the trade deal between the U.S. and China might be “over”.
Shortly after, President Trump tweeted that the trade deal was still intact. And the futures market recovered fast!
Despite the overnight uncertainty in the futures market, stocks opened higher this morning.
