It looks like, in the present scenario, the trade battle between the US and China is the primary factor that has been influencing the sentiments of global investors and broader stock markets. Any positive news from the trade war front has the potential to positively impact the broader stock markets. Market players have become aware about the news that has been recently floated in the market that the Chinese authorities have exempted certain goods from the tariffs. The permanent settlement of the war is very important in order to bring stability in the global equity markets.
The war could weigh over the operations of global companies and this could negatively impact their financial performance. Not only this, the battle can disrupt the broader business environment. The markets are also sensitive to the comments of US Federal Reserve Chairman and, therefore, the investors are advised to track the US Federal Reserve meeting.

However, if the trade war settles down on the permanent basis, it could reduce the worries about global slowdown to some extent.
