    U.S. Stocks Halt Five-Day Skid; Brexit Roils Pound: Markets Wrap

    The pound plunged as Brexit again threw the U.K. government into turmoil. Trade-sensitive industrial shares led the S&P 500 Index higher in afternoon trading amid hope that China and the U.S. would de-escalate their trade spat before the G20 summit later this month, even as the threat of new tariffs looms. For all the worries assailing investors -- Brexit, the trade dispute and Italian budget stress -- they are at least receiving a steady message from the U.S. central bank.

    [$$] Asia stocks fall on lower oil prices, pound edges higher

    Oil prices were more stable on Wednesday in Asia but the previous session’s sharp fall on demand concerns weighed on energy stocks in the region while the pound climbed ahead of a cabinet meeting to agree the draft Brexit treaty. Falls for energy stocks were a uniting factor for Asia-Pacific equities on Wednesday following sharp 7 per cent falls for oil overnight, with Brent crude down just 0.1 per cent on the day at $65.39 a barrel. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index dipped 0.5 per cent, pulled lower by a 3.1 per cent fall for energy stocks as Chinese oil producers CNOOC and PetroChina were among the day’s worst performers, falling 4.5 per cent and 3.2 per cent respectively.

    Hong Kong's third-quarter GDP growth seen cooling as trade war, rate hikes bite

    Hong Kong's economic growth is expected to have moderated in the third quarter as trade tensions between Beijing and Washington as well as higher interest rates take a toll, posing broader risks to growth in the Asia financial hub next year. "Next year will be quite tough, given the trade war," said Kevin Lai, chief economist for Asia ex-Japan at Daiwa Capital Markets in Hong Kong. Hong Kong's currency is pegged to the greenback, which means the city's de facto central bank is obliged to track U.S. interest rate moves.
