The on-again off-again trade war with China was back in off-again mode today as the SkyNet BuyBots ignited a monster rally in the overnight futures trading, sending US stocks sharply higher at the open of trading on Wall Street. From there, stocks zigged and zagged and added a bit more ground into the close. The DJIA jumped 372 points (1.4%) and the NASDAQ surged 140 points (1.7%). Gold and US bonds finally pulled back from their recent sharp gains.

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
