Stock markets in Asia inched up on Thursday on the possibility that China and the US may soon seal a “phase one” deal to end their 17-month trade war, but conflicting messages from US President Donald Trump kept a lid on the advance. The Asian markets were slightly higher on hopes that the US and China might be able to sign a preliminary trade deal, though uncertainties still remained intact due to almost daily shifts in prospects for early talks.
The US officials are of the opinion that as the trade talks between the two countries is moving on positive mode, so China has to wait until the US Presidential election, to come to a final conclusion.

The Chinese officials are sticking to their concern that the existing tariffs must be cut off to restart fresh deals between the two powers.
