    Treasury Yields Rise as U.S. Stock Futures Edge Up: Markets Wrap

    Treasuries fell and U.S. stock index futures nudged higher on Tuesday as investor fears brought on by the inversion of a key part of the yield curve showed signs of ebbing. The yield on benchmark U.S. debt rose after closing below 2.4 percent on Monday, though the spread between three-month and 10-year rates remained in negative territory. Traders remain on edge following increased volatility at the end of last week after European data disappointed and the U.S. yield curve inverted -- a key recession indicator for many in the market.

    Here's How the Shake-Out Is Reverberating Around Global Markets

    As bond yields in Australia and New Zealand plumbed all-time lows in Monday trading, Asian stocks are heading for the biggest slide of 2019 and measures of market volatility are surging, albeit off low levels. MSCI’s gauge of Asia-Pacific shares was down about 2 percent as of 1:20 p.m. Monday in Hong Kong, set for the largest drop since October. The Nikkei Stock Average Volatility Index jumped as much as 31 percent, the most since October, and the equivalent gauge for Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index climbed 11 percent, though the low starting point highlights how placid things had become prior to Friday.

Twelve months later, Victor Li, 54, has learned a tough lesson about being the follow-up act to a legendary figure in Hong Kong and investors have been pretty unforgiving so far. The stock price of the family’s flagship company, CK Hutchison, has dropped 16 percent in the year since Li Ka-shing announced his retirement.

    U.S. negotiators are worried China is pushing back against American demands in the trade talks, according to people familiar with the discussions.

Investors are selling the currency for the yuan and buying mainland shares, according to strategists at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

    China's World-Beating Stock Rally Puts Hong Kong in the Dust

    The city’s two main benchmarks are hardly doing badly, but gauges on the mainland -- after a grim 2018 -- are eclipsing them and just about every other worldwide. While onshore shares slid on Wednesday in a volatile trading day, the renewed enthusiasm for yuan-denominated stocks means the Hang Seng Index is lagging the Shanghai Composite this quarter by the most since 2015. The gap in performance has widened enough to make A shares pricier than stocks in Hong Kong for the first time since October.
