Earlier in the week, US stocks rose to a historical pick. Positive expectations regarding negotiations with China caused the growth.

On November 24, we got the news that the authorities in China intended to increase the punishment regarding violation of intellectual property. Investors felt as though that was a gesture towards the United States. This issue is one of the most difficult in the negotiation process.
The Ministry of Commerce of the PRC informs that some agreements were reached during a telephone conversation between Liu He, Vice Premier of China, and American representatives Robert Lighthizer and Stiven Mnuchin.
“The parties were able to come to an understanding on issues of mutual concern. It became clear how they could be solved. The diplomats have also agreed that they will keep in touch in the course of solving the remaining tasks of concluding the first stage of the agreement,” the Chinese department notes.
Earlier, China only proposed to increase the volume of purchases of US agricultural products. This could hardly move the negotiations forward. Now that real steps are being taken in the field of intellectual property, the agreement can be reached much faster.
