Stocks open higher to build on gains as investors watch U.S.-China trade developments

Stocks opened with gains Tuesday, building on the previous session’s bounce, as investors continued to watch U.S.-China trade talks. Equities on Monday were boosted after President Donald Trump and Chinese officials appeared to tamp down rhetoric around the trade dispute, but investors remain wary following a Friday rout that accompanied an escalation in the tariff fight.
