September E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading higher at the mid-session on Wednesday on easing geopolitical tensions and better than expected economic data from China.

Geopolitically, tensions in Hong Kong between the government and protesters eased after the withdrawal of a controversial extradition bill, and in the UK, a cross-party alliance of rebel lawmakers defeated British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in parliament on Tuesday, moving to prevent him from taking the country out of the European Union without a formal agreement on October 31.

At 16:51 GMT, September E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are trading 2933.75, up 27.75 or +0.95%.

Early Wednesday, a report showed growth in China’s services sector had expanded at its fastest rate in three months in August, despite broader economic headwinds.

Later in the session, sentiment also got a boost after New York Federal Reserve President John Williams said in a speech the central bank will act as appropriate to sustain the current economic expansion.
