Chinese stocks opened in lacklustre mood after the Fed minutes provided no new clues on the path for US interest rate moves but shares then turned sharply higher after Reuters reported progress in the US-China trade talks. According to the news agency, negotiators are drawing up six memorandums of understanding on key structural issues in the dispute including forced technology transfer & cyber theft, intellectual property rights, services, currency, agriculture and non-tariff barriers to trade. In addition, trade representatives are also looking at a ten-item list of short-term measures to reduce China’s trade surplus with the US, including buying agricultural produce, energy and semiconductors.
