The Ibex returns again for its privileges after having managed to advance with some more force this morning. At this time it deflates and struggles not to lose 9,500 (-0.09%. 9,502 points).

It is also likely that President Trump will incorporate the prospect of a 'phase two' agreement into his re-election campaign, "adds Hewson.
