 US stocks are higher in pre-market trading

US stocks rose in pre-market trading on Tuesday after President Donald Trump administration officials played down concerns about a recession after the main yield curve flipped briefly last week. White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the recession was not "at all", while White House presidential adviser Killian Conway insisted the fundamentals of the US economy were "very strong."

Boston Fed Chairman Eric Rosengren continued to oppose further interest rate cuts by the central bank, because he is not convinced that a slowdown in trade and global growth will weigh heavily on the US economy. Investors also focused on the latest developments in the US-China trade dispute, with Washington postponing the ban on Huawei for another 90 days, while the Chinese technology giant accused the United States of "unfair treatment" and asked to be removed from the US trade blacklist.
