New York (CNN Business)Every day the alarm clock rings, and the same will-they-get-a-trade-deal-with-China debate grips the markets. The only difference from the 1993 movie Groundhog Day? Bill Murray is not in this movie. The script goes something like this. The Trump administration expresses optimism. Stocks go up. Reports come out that the sides are far apart. Stocks wobble. China says a meeting is happening. Stocks go up. Trump says China wants a deal more than he does. Stocks go down. How much longer can this go on? Time is running out.

After 17 months of tariffs borne by American consumers and businesses, some economists worry more tariffs will drag on an US economy that is growing, but not robustly.

Tesla unveiled its long-awaited pickup on Thursday, a futuristic "Cybertruck" at a Sci-Fi-style event with gimmicks and a cheering crowd. Not everything went to plan. During an elaborate demonstration of the strength of the car's new unbreakable glass, CEO Elon Musk asked one of the people onstage to try to break its windows. They shattered. "Maybe that was a little too hard," he said, punctuating his reaction with an expletive. It was an awkward, off-script moment in an already over-the-top spectacle of machismo, strength and bold disruption, aimed at generating hype for a product that seemed like a real-life manifestation of something in the vein of a Batmobile.
