Materials and some consumer products are getting a boost after the U.S. and European Union reached a trade truce on steel and aluminum tariffs over the weekend. The two sides were working hard to reach a deal before Dec. 1, when the European retaliatory tariffs were set to double; the 25% tariffs will apply to EU exports beyond 3.3 million tons, Bloomberg reported. The EU agreed to drop retaliatory tariffs on U.S. motorcycles, jeans and bourbon whiskey per Bloomberg (shares of names like HOG looking higher).

The S&P 500, Dow register 4-straight weeks of gains for the first time since mid-April, Nasdaq notches first 4-week advance since June. As for last week, the S&P 500 gains 1.33%, the Dow rose 0.4% and Nasdaq added 2.71%. overall Friday, the U.S. stock market set another round of record highs as Wall Street looked past disappointing results from major companies Apple and Amazon to wrap up its best month of the year.

I entertained the idea a while back of building exposure into lithium stocks with electric cars using lithium batteries and lithium being a limited resource. Was looking at SQM and ALB but the share price has gone on to match all time highs. Its another sector I would like to keep an eye on if there was a market crash.
