So the unclear Sino-American dialogue and the “patient” Fed are driving the market stock down on Friday.

The Dow Jones lost 0.76 percent, to 23,819. The S&P 500 lost 0.63 percent, at 2,580.27. The Nasdaq Composite declined 0.65 percent, to 6,940.29 at 10.33 a.m.

Despite the Friday’s slump, the 7-session start is the best one for all three main indexes since 2006.
