December E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are edging higher late Friday, but for a second session, the price action is nothing to write home about. Volume appears to be below average, but you can’t blame investors after week filled with both positive and negative headlines about a trade deal that confused everyone. Uncertainty basically sent the buyers to the sidelines, but at least it didn’t encourage heavy selling.

At 20:49 GMT, December E-mini S&P 500 Index futures are at 3107.50, up 3.50 or +0.11%.
