But Trump also seemed to hark back to last month's summit when asked whether he preferred that the two parties work out a trade deal before he meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping or whether he'd prefer to work out the final details with Xi. -China negotiations, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday.

Trade negotiations between China and the US left investors grappling. "It shows we're probably range-bound 2,750 to 2,800 until we get answers to China trade, Brexit etc". We'll see. We have a very good relationship.

China has not made any public statements on the next meeting between the Chinese president and Mr Trump so far. But Trump and other administration officials have since sought to portray the talks as still making progress.

"I do not think that any type of agreement with China on trade and investment is sustainable, because it is a zero sum game".

President Donald Trump on yesterday [local time] dangled the prospect of walking away from a new trade deal with China if it's not to his liking, just as he cut short his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un when the two sides failed to reach an agreement.

Trump acknowledged on Wednesday that Xi may be reluctant to come to the USA president's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida without an agreement in hand after seeing Trump end a separate summit in Vietnam with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un without a peace deal. "But I will say that deal is going along very nicely", Trump said.

Washington and Beijing have been locked in a tit-for-tat tariff battle as US officials press China for an end to practices and policies it argues have given Chinese firms unfair advantages, including subsidizing of industry, limits on access for foreign companies and alleged theft of intellectual property.

"We are working diligently but there are 150-page documents that we are working on", Mnuchin said in response to a question. 'We want to get the agreement right...that's more important than the exact timing, ' he said.

Moreover, China and the US have previously stated that the trade talks are going well and predicted that the trade war is ending soon. A person familiar with the matter told Reuters there "were rumblings" about a possible meeting late next month.

New orders for manufactured durable goods in January increased 0.9 billion United States dollars, or 0.4 percent to 255.3 billion dollars, the Commerce Department said on Wednesday.
