There's so many uncertainties going on right now in the markets, whether it's going to be geopolitical, whether it's earnings season, and there's all sorts of things going on out there.

So you're going to have some pullbacks.

We expected that.

But we do think we will continue to have a move higher through the rest of the year." Shares of automakers GM and Ford rose.

Sources told Reuters Trump is expected to delay his tariff decision on autos and auto parts by up to six months as trade talks continue with the EU and Japan.
