Mid-October high-level talks between the US and China are planned in Washington DC. Data on the Chinese economy has remained mixed over the weeks since the last mid-level talks between the two sides in September, reflecting the impact of the US trade war on the world's second largest economy.
A new Caixin / Markit manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) rose in September from 1965 to 51.4 50.4 in August, above the neutral level of 50, to expand for a second straight month display. September was the country's PMI's fastest rise since February 2018.

"The recovery in the Chinese manufacturing sector in September benefited mainly from potential growth in domestic demand," said Zhengsheng Zhong. The director of macroeconomic analysis at the CEBM Group said in a statement. "The trade disputes between China and the US have had a significant impact on exports, production costs and corporate confidence."

Monday marks the last session in both September and the third quarter of the calendar year. At the close on Friday, the S & P 500 and the Dow posted modest price gains in both periods, while the Nasdaq declined slightly.
The third quarter saw a number of developments in trade, monetary policy and policy. Customs duties on each other's goods were introduced in both the US and China before some of these tensions were removed. The Federal Reserve lowered interest rates for the second time this year and the European Central Bank for the first time in three years. Attacks on oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia drove up oil prices and increased the risk of further conflict in the Middle East. And House Democrats initiated an impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump.
These events have fueled stock market volatility, a reversal of an important part of the yield curve for the first time in more than a decade, and sharp fluctuations in crude oil. History continues.
Amid many events and growing uncertainty about the outlook, September was marked by a significant shift of growth stocks to their counterparts or stocks that appear to be undervalued when looking at measures including price-to-price ratios – participation rates.
S & P 500 stock value since the beginning of the month was 3.3%, while S & P 500's growth stocks only gained 0.6%, according to DataTrek co-founder Nicholas Colas.  This was mainly driven by the performance of large cap financials – a sector that represents 22% of value stocks, which rose 4.3% in the current month – and Energy, which is a sector of 7% % of the value equates shares and increase by 3.7% during the reporting period.
On the growth side, the technology sector, which accounts for 26% of growth stocks, underperformed, rising only 0.2% over the month. And the health care sector, which accounted for 16% of growth stocks, declined 1.4% over the month, Colas said.
"The gains in September against growth were more about sectors than style," Colas said in a memo on Monday. "Financials were boosted by higher long-term interest rates. Energy received a knockdown from Saudi oil field attacks. Political and regulatory issues have hurt virtually nothing in health care and technology. "
The portfolio flows of large asset managers have also highlighted the months-long rotation of the value of growth and momentum shares. In a note to customers on Sunday, Deutsche Bank's strategist, Parag Thatte, said Momentum funds ended a second week in a row last week, while cash inflows continued at low volatility. And while value funds saw some outflows last week, they lagged behind outflows from growth funds.
"Other signs of waning risk appetite for inflows were small (- $ 5bn) and medium-sized (- $ 4.3bn) bn) and growth (- $ 6.1bn) and value (- $ 4.1bn). USD 2.0 billion), there were strong outflows that largely reversed the inflows of the past week, "wrote Thatte. "At low volume ($ 0.4bn), steady inflows continued, but momentum funds (- $ 0.4bn) saw outflows in the second week. Gold funds ($ 2.8 billion) saw inflows rise after a few lean weeks. "
