U.S. stocks gained on Friday, ahead of a long Memorial day weekend, as investors breathed a sigh of relief after President Donald Trump indicated that the protracted trade war with China could end soon.

Trump said on Thursday that Huawei Technologies Co Ltd could be included in the trade deal. However, no high-level talks have been scheduled since the last round of negotiations in Washington two weeks ago.

The positive news came after a slump in markets on Thursday. The S&P 500 index is on pace to end the week 1% lower, which would make it the third straight week of losses for the benchmark index, as markets worried that the trade war would result in a global economic slowdown.

Adding to concerns that the broader economy was slowing, data showed that U.S.-made capital goods fell more than expected in April.

At 11:03 a.m. ET the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 34.87 points, or 0.14%, at 25,525.34, the S&P 500 was up 2.14 points, or 0.08%, at 2,824.38 and the Nasdaq Composite was up 18.30 points, or 0.24%, at 7,646.58.
