U.S. Futures seem to be adding the earnings of the previous session, which saw Wall Street ending positively, in terms of surrounding trade showed signs of easing. The subject itself has been of central importance this week when an important G-20 summit approaches, where both President Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping will be present.

On Monday, President Donald Trump declared the Wall Street Journal that it was “highly unlikely” that states would delay delaying 25 percent to $ 200 billion in Chinese goods, which put some markets under pressure. The next day, Belarus’s financial adviser Larry Kudlow appeared to relieve worry, saying that the Trump administration had resumed discussions “at all levels” with the Chinese government. At the summit, the two leaders are expected to have dinner together.

Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell is expected to speak at the Economic Club in New York. During the event, Powell tells him he will talk about Fed’s Financial Stability Monitoring Framework.

Trump told the Washington Post that he was not even “happy” with his appointment of Powell as the Fed chairman and added that he believed that the central bank’s recent actions were “far away”.
