US stocks edge higher in premarket

Shares on Wall Street were in the green in early premarket trading on Friday amid optimism in regards to US-China trade relations. Beijing is reportedly looking to resume purchases of American farm goods after US President Donald Trump postponed tariffs on Chinese products by 2 weeks. Yesterday, Trump emphasized the importance of agriculture sales to China, which expressed hope that tariffs will not be imposed after the next round of talks.

On a different matter, US president accused the European Central Bank of depreciating the euro against the dollar by lowering the deposit rate, while the Fed just "sits."

The Dow Jones Industrial Average index was up by 0.22% in premarket trade at 5:01 am ET.

The Nasdaq 100 grew 0.21%, as the S&P 500 climbed 0.22%.

The euro gained 0.27% against the dollar at 5:02 am ET, going for $1.10942.
