The previous week began for the US stock market with moderate growth, the main reason was the rise in prices of the technology segment before the publication of quarterly reports Alphabet (GOOG).

The limiter was the drop in shares of the conglomerates sector and the health sector. Market participants also drew attention to statistics on the country. According to a report by the US Department of Commerce, new orders for manufactured goods in November fell by $ 3.1 billion, or 0.6%, to $ 499.2 billion. This followed a fall of 2.1% in October. Economists forecasted the growth in orders of 0.2%. The release of the report was postponed due to the recently completed five-week partial closure of the government. Meanwhile, a report from the Conference Board showed that the US employment trends index, which is a collection of labor market indicators, fell in January to 109.56 points from 110.96 points in November (revised from 111.61). However, the index still shows an increase of 3.4% per annum.

On Tuesday, the growth in the market continued, as the results exceeded expectations Estee Lauder and Ralph Lauren spurred optimism regarding corporate reporting in anticipation of the long-awaited report of the US President to Congress on the situation in the country. A report by the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) pointed to a slowdown in business growth in the services sector last month. The index of business activity in the services sector fell in January to 56.7 points compared to 58.0 points in December. Analysts expected the figure to drop to 57.2 points.

By the middle of the week, there was some growth in the market due to the mixed quarterly results of the corporate segment. The market situation, in addition, was influenced by the report of the US President to the Congress on the situation in the country. In his report, Trump mentioned issues such as infrastructure costs, drug prices and trade. He also raised the issue of financing the border wall along the border of the United States and Mexico. Trump reiterated his conviction that the US needs a wall, but did not declare a state of emergency, as he had previously threatened to do. Thus, the president softened his tone around the financing of the wall on the border with Mexico, but this does not exclude the possibility that the federal government may again suspend work if its demand for financing its construction is not met.

On Thursday, the market went down sharply after CNBC reports that a meeting between US President Trump and Chinese President Jinping is unlikely before the March deadline set by both countries to conclude a trade deal. An informed source told CNBC that the meeting of the two leaders seems to be "extremely unlikely." China and the United States must close a deal in early March. Otherwise, additional tariffs for Chinese goods come into force. The source said that the meeting of Xi Jinping and Donald Trump could take place soon after the deadline, but noted that both sides have too much work to do.

The week ended in different directions due to investors' concerns about the course of trade negotiations between the US and China and the slowdown in global economic growth.
