September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading higher shortly after the opening on Tuesday after trade advisor Peter Navarro clarified that the U.S.-China trade deal is not over. During the pre-market session, the Dow broke sharply after investors misinterpreted Navarro’s comments about U.S.-China trade relations.
“My comments have been taken wildly out of context”, Navarro said in a statement. “They had nothing at all to do with the Phase I trade deal, which continues in place.”
President Trump also tweeted that the existing trade deal remains in place.
At 13:46 GMT, September E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 26164, up 211 or +0.81%.
