US futures are slightly lower as investors remain cautious ahead of continued trade talks between the US and China. There is currently a March 1 deadline for a new agreement before an increase in tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to 25% from the current 10%. Markets in Asia closed mostly higher led by the Hang Seng as the yuan strengthened after reports that the US is requesting that China keep the yuan stable as part of the trade deal. European markets are trading higher led by the DAX. Later today, we will get the Fed minutes from their January meeting.
