U.S. stock index futures were higher Friday morning, as traders await a key meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G-20.
At around 03:51 a.m. ET, Dow futures rose 70 points, indicating a positive open of more than 86 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were marginally higher.
Trump and Xi are expected to meet Saturday amid their ongoing trade conflict. The world’s two largest economies have maintained firm stances going into the weekend, with the Chinese Ministry of Commerce calling on Washington to cancel its pressure and sanction measures on Huawei and other Chinese companies, while Trump reiterated a threat to impose tariffs on all Chinese imports if talks fail.
