(Reuters) - Wall Street dropped on Friday after a Chinese agriculture delegation canceled a planned visit to Montana next week, dampening optimism about U.S.-China trade talks.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) fell 160.19 points, or 0.59%, to 26,934.6, the S&P 500 (SPX) lost 15.08 points, or 0.50%, to 2,991.71 and the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) dropped 65.21 points, or 0.8%, to 8,117.67.

This is the time to go long on many stocks. While the trade sends jitters the institutional investors are picking up good deals. One thing to realize is that the conditions of the trade are already priced into most of the equities. If they dip now they will rise up within days. So, go forth and while fear sells you buy and make some money!

10.1 is China's national day. There will be one-week holiday nationwide. Maybe their schedule is tight because of this.

This is a good opportunity to buy futures. The article is just a scalping trade in the markets. What I am waiting for is what is Trump gonna do. After they cancelled. Will he threatened or pick up tariffs as things are getting sour

ok at the start of the day the markets are up bc of" trade hopes" and now two hours later markets slump bc of trade fears. make up your mind ffs. the way they speak you would think the entire economy depends on this trade war, which is funny bc before this drama saga started last year there was indeed an economy before.

Earlier, US removed 400 items from the tariffs, per China news. Trump positioning deal making with "we don't ned deal before 2020 elections."
