Temporary government shutdown solution lifts US markets

Wall Street closed higher on Friday, after President Trump announced a deal to temporarily end the government shutdown, and keep it open until mid-February. The DJ30SPX500 and NSDQ100 all finished in the green, notching a five-week win streak. The tech sector showed strong gains, as both Apple and Netflix closed more than 3% higher, and Facebook was up more than 2%. PayPal also climbed more than 2%, to reach a new all-time high.

Markets await trade talks: Representatives from the US and China will meet later this week, discussing a potential trade deal. As the ongoing trade war continues to weigh on markets, a deal announcement could have a positive impact on Wall Street and Asia.
