The major indices continue to climb as tensions in the U.K and Hong Kong ease. In addition, the market got a boost from New York Fed John Williams saying that the central bank will act as appropriate to sustain the current market economic expansion. The U.S. yield curve reversed with the 2-yr yield currently at 1.44%, while the 10-year yield hit 1.46%.

A few high-end retail stocks, which were rattled by large protest in Hong Kong, are gaining today. PVH (PVH) is leading the sector, rallying more than 8%.

Ten of the 11 S&P 500 are higher, with Real Estate, Consumer Staples and Utilities hitting an all-time high.

On the economic front, the U.S. trade deficit fell nearly 3% to $54 billion in July on rising exports. In addition, all eyes are on The Fed’s Beige Book at 2 p.m. that will underscore the business conditions in the central bank’s districts.
