Market Snapshot: Stocks edge higher, Dow may see best June in 80 years as eyes turn to hoped-for U.S. – China trade progress

  • Dow on pace for its best June since 1938
  • All three benchmarks are on pace for weekly losses of at least 0.7%
  • FTSE Russell rebalancing kicks off at the end of Friday’s session

U.S. stocks traded slightly higher Friday morning, but were likely to end flat for the week as investors await China-U.S. trade talk progress on the sidelines of the G-20 meeting in Osaka, Japan.

Friday also marks a rebalancing of the FTSE Russell index, of mostly small capitalization stocks, which will occur at the close of trade and the changes will reflect several broad trends in equity markets over the past year.

How are the major benchmarks faring?
