Wall Street Wednesday Technical Trade Note – 12 December 2018


We saw the U.S markets rise on Tuesday after news broke that the U.S and China’s top negotiators have reengaged talks for the first time since the G20 Summit. President Trump stated on Tuesday that he would intervene in the case against Chinese telecommunications executive Meng Wanzhou if it would help secure a trade deal with Beijing.

The market rally was short lived as by the U.S open we saw the bears retake control which drove the market lower once more as the Border Wall issue steps back into the spotlight.

Let's take a look at the technical charts...
