Kohl's and TJX earnings on Tuesday will be highlights for investors as markets deal with yet another round of Trump criticizing the Federal Reserve.
At its session high, the S&P 500 was 0.14 percent shy of its Jan. 26 all-time high. The United States and China are slated to hold trade talks this week, but President Donald Trump told Reuters he does not expect much progress. Trump also said he was "not thrilled" with the Federal Reserve for raising rates and that the central bank should do more to help him boost the economy.
The S&P 500 appears poised to close in on a fresh all-time high, following another strong quarterly earnings season and hopes that trade talks between the U.S. and China will amount to something positive.
U.S. stocks moved higher in early trading Tuesday as investors welcomed solid results from homebuilders, retailers and other companies. Technology stocks also rose, rebounding from a slide a day earlier. Energy companies were climbing along with the price of U.S. crude oil.
President Trump literally fired in all directions when he announced the Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. However, now it seems that the administration is focused on China, which has been vigorously opposing Trump’s tariffs and announcing tit-for-tat measures.
