President Trump is expected to sign the new budget deal, despite being unhappy with it, according to the Associated Press. This would avoid another partial government shutdown, after the previous one lasted approximately 35 days. The deal will need to be signed before the end of Friday to avoid the shutdown.
Trade headlines continue to move the markets, as the market got “sparked” yesterday, especially in the grains, Allendale said. This “left traders looking for more,” they said, and the latest news has President Trump saying he may “let the March 1 deadline for a trade agreement with China slide for a little while, but that he would prefer not to.” Trump added that he expects to meet with the Chinese President to close the deal.
