U.S., China start to outline deal to end trade war: report
U.S. and Chinese negotiators have begun to outline a deal to end the trade war between the world's two largest economies, Reuters reported Wednesday night. Citing sources familiar with the ongoing negotiations, Reuters said agreements in principle are being drawn up on six key areas: forced technology transfer and cyber theft, intellectual property rights, services, currency, agriculture and non-tariff barriers to trade. The report suggested the outline is the most significant progress made so far after months of trade talks. The progress began in earnest last week during talks in Beijing, Reuters reported, and carried on in Washington this week. On Tuesday, President Donald Trump suggested the March 1 deadline before the U.S. raises tariffs again is "not a magical date," and reports said the deadline may be extended, with the potential for a final deal to be signed at a summit between Trump and China's President Xi Jinping next month.

13 Great Tech ETFs for Years of Stellar Gains
Tech stocks might have had the wind knocked out of them to finish last year, but the sector's standing as a long-term source of growth still looks clear.

The world is becoming ever more dependent on technology. If you have any doubts, ask yourself: How long have you spent on your smartphone today? Are you reading this article on it right now? Have you taken an Uber recently? Have a "smart" home-security system? Plan on listening to your smart speaker later? Those are just some of the most obvious advances in tech. Behind the scenes, data centers are increasingly powering American business, health records are going digital, retail is using big-data analysis to better deliver its wares ... you get the point.

The technology sector was brutalized in the fourth quarter of 2018. Almost everything was lower - the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index fell 14% - but tech companies more than carried their weight, dropping 17.7% to make them the third-worst-performing sector during that period. Likewise, though, tech stocks have been among the leaders of 2019's rebound, rallying more than 12%, which in turn has sent numerous tech exchange-traded funds (ETFs) skyward.

The problem with investing in individual tech stocks is the risk. The sector is rife with disruption, and even longtime winners can suddenly find themselves on the outs - ask Nokia (NOK) or BlackBerry (BB). But you can whittle down that risk by investing in large bundles of these stocks, via ETFs.

Here are 13 of the best tech ETFs to buy. These funds allow you to participate in the growth of the whole sector, or even smaller industry trends, while minimizing the risk of single-stock implosions.
