ShutterStockProfessional/ ShutterStock|||

Markets are posting a strong performance this Friday to close out a red-hot week, with both the Dow and S&P 500 bumping up against their all-time records. The latest salvo of tariffs between China and the United States, announced earlier this week, proved less stringent than many investors feared, giving a large spark to get the broad-based rally started. Markets retreated slightly on news that a trade deal may be close with Mexico, but not Canada, but remain in solidly positive territory.
