Many investors are in no hurry to open long positions, since the trade conflict between the US and China has not been resolved yet. Recently it became known that one of the major telecommunications companies China Mobile was banned from providing its services in the US market. Tomorrow, new duties amounting to about USD 50 billion will come into effect, which will negatively influence the Chinese economy.
As for American companies, here the negative role is played by Facebook, which occupies a significant position in the S&P 500 index. The social network shares reduced by 1.5% after it became known that the FBI and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission started an investigation into the transfer of data to third-party users.
