Stocks Finish Higher Second Straight Day After Optimistic Report On Trade Disputes

Tensions between the world's two biggest economies intensified over the last week. The Trump administration more than doubled tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports and spelled out plans to target the $300 billion worth that aren't already facing 25% taxes. The escalation covers a wide range of products, including sneakers, toasters and billiard balls. The Chinese have retaliated by raising tariffs on $60 billion in U.S. imports.
