US stocks end lower, but score gains in November

US stocks closed lower on the last session in November amid doubts about the US-China trade talks, in addition to energy prices slump, but Wall Street scored chubby weekly and monthly gains.

 

This comes amid the lack of new detail from Washington or Beijing about the trade talks, and despite upbeat remarks the signing date for the phase one of the trade deal hasn't been revealed.

 

Wall Street saw calm trading during the Black Friday half-day session, which came after the US Thanksgiving holiday.
