Boeing Pushes Dow to Record Close

The Dow reached another closing record high on the back of Boeing, which jumped 4.5% on the news of it will resume deliveries of the 737 Max next month.

But the rest of the market closed lower amid lingering U.S.-China trade worries while protests in Hong Kong escalated.

The major indexes had been on a tear recently that led them to all-time highs. Over the past month, the Dow is up around 3%. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq have risen about 4% and 5%, respectively.

President Donald Trump said Friday he had not agreed to roll back tariffs on China. Those comments came after the Chinese commerce ministry said that both sides had agreed to cancel existing tariffs in phases. A U.S. official also reportedly said both sides agreed to roll back the tariffs in tranches.

The stock market’s recent move to record highs comes in part because of improving sentiment around U.S.-China trade talks. With his comments on Friday, Trump dampened trade expectations in the market.

Market players are also following new demonstrations in Hong Kong. Local police opened fire at protesters, leaving one in critical condition. Separately, another protester was set aflame after being doused with an unknown substance and is also in critical condition.
