U.S. stocks traded mostly lower Friday, giving back early gains, after President Trump and Chinese officials announced a trade deal that includes a reduction of tariffs and promises by China to buy more U.S. goods.
Meanwhile, a decisive victory for Conservatives in Thursday™s U.K. election that reduces policy uncertainty and clears a path for Brexit also boosted investor sentiment for a while.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 44 points, 0.2%, to 28,087, while the S&P 500 index fell 6 points, or 0.2%, to 3,162 and the Nasdaq Composite index lost less than a point at 8,716.
For the week, the Dow is set to gain 0.4%, while the S&P and Nasdaq are poised for gains of 0.7% each.
