closed for a holiday last night. World stocks traded just below record highs on
Monday, pausing ahead of this week’s central bank meetings, economic data and
earnings, while oil prices rose to their highest in over a week after blockades
began shutting down two Libyan oilfields.
Last night, S&P 500 and
Nasdaq hit all-time highs during trading but ended off session highs after a
highly anticipated midday speech from Trump, with investors concerned ahead of
time about any comments that would worsen the tariff dispute that has convulsed
markets for more than a year.
