Dow and broader market stage early morning jump on Sino-American trade reportsU.S. stocks jumped early Thursday, driving the three main benchmarks to session highs amid hope of a near-term resolution between Beijing and Washington. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 116 points, or 0.4%, to 27,256, the S&P 500 index advanced 0.5% at 3,016, while the Nasdaq Composite Index traded 0.8% higher at 8,232. Gains for U.S. stocks coincided with a report from , which cited unnamed Trump administration officials, indicating that the U.S. and China have discussed offering a limited trade agreement to China that could forestall some U.S. tariffs in exchange for Chinese commitments on intellectual property and agricultural purchases. The Bloomberg report comes amid a separate report from , which said China is aiming to "narrow the scope of its negotiations with the U.S.," putting discussions about intellectual property rights on a separate track in a bid to achieve a trade resolution in some form. The news reports come after President Donald Trump late Wednesday increasing tariffs until Oct. 15 on China products that were set to increase on Oct. 1, as a conciliatory act and avoid an increase on the 70th birthday of the formation of the People's Republic on Oct. 1. Separate reports implied that China was set to buy soybeans and pork from the U.S. again. American and Chinese representatives are slated to meet in early October to restart stalled trade negotiations and avert any further escalation of animosities between the economic superpowers.

Dow opens higher, set for longest win streak in a year as ECB launches major stimulus packageU.S. stocks opened modestly higher Thursday morning as market bulls appeared emboldened by easy-money policies enacted by the European Central and hope that it could influence the Fed. The European Central Bank cut its deposit rate from negative 0.4% to negative 0.5%, while announcing it would begin open-ended purchasing of long-term government bonds at a pace of €20 billion a month in an effort to further reduce long-term interest rates, in a bid to boost the sluggish eurozone economy. The central bank said rates would remain at "present or lower levels" until the inflation outlook "robustly" converges with its target of just below 2%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 66 points, or 0.3%, at 27,207, while the S&P 500 index advanced 0.4% to 3,011 and the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 0.6% to 8,217. All three benchmarks stand within shouting distance of all-time records as investors bet that the ECB's move will influence the Federal Reserve, which gathers next week to decide on domestic monetary policy. Stocks had been headed higher before the ECB moves, after President Donald Trump said tariff hikes-from 25% to 30%-that were scheduled to take effect Oct. 1 will now go into effect Oct. 15. The president attributed the "gesture of goodwill", as he described it via Twitter, to the People's Republic's 70th anniversary commencing on Oct. 1. and came at the request of China's chief trade negotiator Vice Premier Liu He.
