Major US stock indices closed in positive territory

Major US stocks rose moderately amid growing expectations for a deal between the US and China.

US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Sunday that “in the very near future” US companies will be licensed to sell components of Chinese Huawei Technologies Co. Ross’s comments came after Washington and Beijing said Friday they had made progress in easing an economically disruptive trade war, and US officials said the deal could be signed this month.

The market was also supported by the fact that the ongoing corporate reporting season for the third quarter was stronger than expected. According to FactSet, out of the 360 ​​companies in the S&P 500 index that have already reported, 75% showed excess profits for the last reporting period. After the close of the trading session, the publication of quarterly reports Uber (UBER) is expected. Analysts predict that according to the results of the reporting period, the company will show a loss of $ 0.54 per share for revenue of $ 3.685 billion.

Meanwhile, the data on production orders did not meet the expectations of economists. As the US Department of Commerce report showed, orders for manufactured goods fell 0.6% after falling 0.1% in August. Economists had predicted that orders would fall by 0.5% in September. At the same time, orders for capital goods not related to defense, with the exception of aircraft, which are considered as a measure of business equipment spending plans, fell by 0.6% instead of a decrease of 0.5%, which was reported last month. Deliveries of industrial goods fell 0.2% after falling 0.3% in August.

Most of the DOW components completed trading in positive territory (18 of 30). The biggest gainers were Chevron Corporation (CVX; + 4.69%). Outsider were the shares of The Procter & Gamble Company (PG; -3.75%).

Most S&P sectors recorded an increase. The largest growth was shown in the raw materials sector (+ 1.7%). The utilities sector declined more than the rest (-1.1%).

At the time of closing:

Dow 27,462.11 +114.75 +0.42%

S&P 500 3,078.27 +11.36 +0.37%

Nasdaq 100 8,433.20 +46.80 +0.56%
