Stock futures are trading higher again this morning thanks to ongoing improvement in US-China trade war sentiment as Brexit drama and the threat of a potential US government shutdown continue to be largely shrugged off.

Huawei’s CFO was released on bail in Canada which was a market positive and Trump also told Reuters he may intervene in the case if it would help with a trade deal.

Economic data overnight was mixed but did not move markets as focus remained on trade.

Looking into today’s Wall Street session, focus will be on U.S. inflation data early with CPI due out ahead of the bell (E: 0.0%).

Beyond that release, the list of scheduled catalysts is thin as there are no Fed officials speaking or other economic reports which will leave traders focused on any further trade war developments.
