    GLOBAL MARKETS-Asian shares creep higher on hopes of Sino-U.S. trade truce

    Asian share markets turned higher on Thursday following a media report the United States and China have tentatively agreed to a truce in their trade war, ahead of a closely-watched meeting between the two nations this weekend. The South China Morning Post (SCMP), citing sources, said in Washington and Beijing were laying out an agreement that would help avert the next round of tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports. On Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump said a trade deal with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping was possible this weekend though he was prepared to impose tariffs on virtually all remaining Chinese imports if talks fail.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Dollar gains on lower rate cut expectations, stocks flat

Trump said Powell was doing a "bad job" and he urged the Fed to lower rates so that U.S. exports can compete with countries that he said are devaluing their currencies.
