Wall Street opens the week on a steady note

US stock indices steadied at the open as eyes shift to US-China trade talks, and the next step in the battle to fund the US government. 

 

The White House and Congress recently agreed to fund the federal government for three weeks ending February 15. 

 

US Vice President Mike Pence said he expected another government shutdown as no deal between Trump and the Democrats seems likely. 

 

A US delegation led by treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin traveled to China to conduct talks with officials in Beijing in another attempt to reach a compromise and solve the trade dispute. 

 

As of 15:23 GMT, Dow Jones rose 3 points to 25,105, while Nasdaq added 0.1% to 7,309, as Standard and Poor's 500 steadied at 2,708.
