VIA NOVA UPDATE: Optimism for renewed China negotiations helped lift markets.

The markets cheered the scheduled resumption of U.S. / China trade talks, lifting the S&P 500 0.66%. Within domestic stocks, there may be early signs that market leadership is shifting away from the long dominant technology sector, at least over the near term. The week’s performance shift was a clear win for the value style, which has been lagging the growth style by over 18% during the past three years.
