    In Dizzying Asia Rally, You're Still Missing Out: Taking Stock

    With the U.S. still shuttered overnight thanks to a holiday, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index hovered around at a four-month high as shares in Shanghai stayed in the green after a dazzling 2.7 percent jump on Monday. U.S. equity-index futures were flat. A more dovish Fed appears to have done the trick for U.S. equities despite some anxiety around the government shutdown earlier.

    Global Stocks Drift Lower as Investors Eye Key Round of US-China Trade Talks

    Global stocks mixed as investors eye this week's round of U.S. China trade talks as the March 2 deadline looms. President Donald Trump says talks have made "a lot of progress", but analysts note key issues such as intellectual property protection and forced technology transfers remain sticking points. European stocks drift lower amid a modestly stronger euro and concerns the U.S. could impose tariffs on regionally-produced cars under a national security remit.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Asian shares flirt with 4-month highs, yen eases on Kuroda comments

    SYDNEY/TOKYO, Feb 19 (Reuters) - Asian shares hovered near four-month highs on Tuesday as investors took heart from some progress in Sino-U.S. trade talks, while the yen slipped as the Japanese central bank said it won't rule out further policy easing. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei nudged up 0.2 percent after holding flat for most of the day. Australian shares climbed 0.3 percent to a 4-1/2 month peak, after gaining over 8 percent so far this year partly on expectations the central bank could ease policy to temper pressure on growth.

Commodities from oil to copper jumped. The Stoxx Europe 600 closed higher following a choppy morning as gains by telecommunications companies offset declines in carmakers, after President Donald Trump received a report that may be a preliminary step to raising tariffs on auto imports.

    Global Markets: World stocks lifted to 2 1/2-month highs by trade optimism

    Hopes for progress in Sino-U.S. trade talks and expectations of policy stimulus from central banks lifted world stocks to 2 1/2- month highs on Monday, though European gains were held back by concern over the outlook for auto makers. MSCI's All-Country World Index rose 0.4 percent after Japan's Nikkei closed up 1.8 percent at its high for the year and MSCI's index of Asian equities rose almost 1 percent. Negotiations will resume this week, with U.S. President Donald Trump saying he may extend a March 1 deadline for a deal.

    Why the stock market might soon careen down a dangerous ‘slope of hope’

    Consider the average recommended equity exposure among the Nasdaq-oriented market timers I monitor (as measured by the Hulbert Nasdaq Newsletter Sentiment Index, or HNNSI). Today, in contrast, in the wake of a 17%-plus gain in the S&P 500 (SPX) and a 20%-plus rally in the Nasdaq (COMP) the HNNSI has risen to plus 73%. In other words, as you can see from the accompanying chart, in six weeks’ time this group of short-term stock-market timers has increased their average equity exposure by more than 140 percentage points: Away from being aggressively bearish (recommending that clients allocate three-fourths of their trading portfolios to short-selling) to being almost as aggressively bullish (now recommending that three-fourths of clients’ portfolios be long).

    The aggregate estimates for S&P 500 Index earnings growth mask a wide dispersion that obscures the potential for some good results, strategists led by David Kostin wrote in a note Friday. “The gap between the median and aggregate EPS growth underscores the opportunity for fundamental investors,” the strategists said. Micron Technology Inc. and Apple Inc. alone represent a drag of 20 percent on the S&P 500’s annual profit growth forecast, Kostin said.
