2019-03-14 12:46 pm | Resource: News | No Views : 87

US stocks rebounded from declines and posted slight gains in pre-market trading on Thursday. US President Donald Trump said earlier he was looking forward to a trade deal with the UK and praised its potential as "unlimited". However, Thursday's figures, which showed initial jobless claims in the United States rose by 6,000 to 229,000 in February, led to a somewhat reduced mood.

Initial jobless claims in the United States are rising by 6,000 to 229,000

Report: Trump meeting postponed until at least 11 April

The meeting between US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, was delayed until at least the end of April, according to well-informed sources.

The summit of Mar Lago, in which the two leaders will sign an agreement to end the trade war, will take place at the end of next month if it ever happens, the Bloomberg report said on Thursday. In addition, Beijing is paid for an official state visit.

On Wednesday, Trump said the trade talks were going well, reiterating that "China is strongly interested in reaching an agreement." However, the president warned that the deal could still "collapse".
