The Santa rally appears to be coming early this year as traders look set to push Wall Street further into record high territory today before taking off for Thanksgiving. The bullish trend has been underpinned by recent trade optimism, leading the DJIA on Tuesday to score its 100th record close under President Trump, while weak figures from China (see below) suggest the world’s second-largest economy may seek to hasten a “Phase One” deal.
