Markets are relatively quiet to begin the week as investors turn their eyes to DC for the next round of US-China trade talks.  The outcome of these negotiations will likely greatly impact markets since $300 billion in China tariffs are set to take effect next Tuesday if a deal isn’t reached.   Fed minutes and key inflation data are also due out later in the week.  Gold is down slightly ahead of such a busy week, currently trading at $1,499.00 and equities are virtually flat.
