U.S. stock futures indicated major indexes could be headed for fresh highs on Wednesday, after President Donald Trump said he may let a China trade-deal deadline slide if the two sides were making enough progress.
Dow Jones Industrial Average futures rose 115 points, or 0.5%, to 25,521, while S&P 500 futures rose 10.95 points, or 0.5%, to 2,755.75. Nasdaq-100 futures climbed 41.75 points, or 0.6%, to 7,060.50.
Major indexes closed 2019 highs on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbing 372.65 points, or 1.5%, to 25,425.76, while the S&P 500 rose 1.3% to 2,744.73, finishing above its 200-day moving average for the first time in 46 days. That marked the S&P’s longest sojourn under the key trend line since March 2016, according to the Dow Jones Market Data Group.
