Big news: US-China trade deal cuts tariffs for Beijing
As per news agency Reuters, the United States and China cooled their trade war on November 13 and announced "Phase one" agreement that reduces some US tariffs in exchange for what officials said would be a big jump in Chinese purchases of American farm products and other goods.

Nifty as per weekly timeframe formed a long bull candle with lower shadow. This candle pattern was formed immediately after the formation of a bearish engulfing type pattern in the last week. This is a positive indication and one may expect further upside in the short-term.
"A sustainable move above 12,158 could nullify the negative implication of bearish engulfing," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical & Derivative Analyst at HDFC securities.
Shetti said one may expect Nifty to reach up to 12,150-200 levels this week and there is a possibility of an emergence of selling pressure again around all-time highs.
Three levels: 12023.6, 12098.8, 12115.8
