JSE pushes higher as market eyes budget statement
Activity is subdued as US markets are closed for a holiday, although optimism over the US-China trade talks is bolstering sentiment

Asian bourses were higher, with sentiment lifted by the resumption of trade talks between the US and China in Washington this week. Both sides reported progress in talks conducted last week, and the motivation to strike a deal before the March 1 deadline was clear, said London Capital Group analyst Jasper Lawler.
