Major U.S. indices are seeing little changes today as investors are contemplating the rollout of a tax reform bill in Washington, with little significant news today to move markets. U.S. President Donald Trump is continuing his diplomatic tour of Asia, which is bringing North Korea tensions back into focus. We’re seeing cooled down rhetoric and a return to diplomatic pushes to resolve the conflict.  

For the time being, we’re in wait-and-see mode until there is significant news on tax reform. We’ll be seeing heated debates in Washington over this bill, and investors will have to wait until the dust settles to gauge any concrete details around timelines to implementation and specific policies.
