U.S. equities closed at all-time highs for a second consecutive day after President Donald Trump said he’s been talking to Chinese President Xi Jinping and that they continue to work for a trade deal. Treasuries rose.

The S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite climbed to fresh records.
