U.S. stocks turned lower yesterday as investors digested headlines suggesting progress toward a U.S.-China trade deal has stalled against the backdrop of weaker-than-expected Chinese economic data.  The reports come against the backdrop of a grounding of a key Boeing jet and a Brexit saga playing out in the U.K.


U.K. lawmakers have voted in favor of seeking a delayed departure from the EU, marking another step in a political crisis that has ripped through the heart of England.  Members of Parliament voted for an extension beyond its current March 29 deadline.

Sales of new homes in the U.S. dropped almost 7% in January, indicating the housing market has gotten off to a slow start in early 2019 amid a partial government shutdown and patches of unusually harsh weather.  New-home sales declined to a 607,000 annual rate in January.
Flir Systems, one of the few big technology companies that still calls Oregon home, said Wednesday it will open a new headquarters near Washington, D.C.  The defense contractor said it will still refer to its Wilsonville campus as a “headquarters” and will retain the 350 employees who work there. But the company’s top leadership, including its chief executive and chief financial officer, will work at the new, 65-person office in Arlington, Virginia.
