Stocks Likely to Remain Volatile Amid Trade Disputes

The stock market could see ongoing volatility next week as rising political risks compete against a strong domestic economy.

Reality could set in next week after last week’s $34 billion tariff swap.

Next week, traders will be keeping a close eye on several economic indicators, including the consumer price index and jobless claims on July 12 and consumer sentiment data on July 13.
