    Stocks Mixed as Trade Hopes Lift Asia, Commodities: Markets Wrap

    Stocks in Europe and U.S. futures drifted after a rally in Asia boosted shares to their highest level since October on optimism over China’s economy and trade talks. Commodities from oil to copper climbed. The Stoxx Europe 600 nudged higher 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.

    Europe Stocks Drift Higher, Oil at 3-Month High, in Quiet President's Day Trade

    European stocks edged higher Monday, although volumes were thin in most markets around the world owing to today's President's Day holiday, as investors continued to key on developments in U.S.-China trade talks. Gains in the region were capped by concern that the White House may opt to impose tariffs on European-made cars now that President Donald Trump has received a report from the Commerce Department that assessed their risk to national security. Broader market sentiment, however, was linked to the progress in last week's trade talks between high-level delegations of both the U.S. and China in Beijing, which are slated to continue this week in Washington, with the aim of reaching a comprehensive pact by the March 2 deadline or, as President Trump has hinted, extend the talks for a further period of time in order to address the myriad issues that still separate the world's two biggest economies.

    Nissan panel to recommend outside director to chair board - Nikkei

    A Nissan Motor governance committee will recommend the appointment of an external director as board chairman, a role distinct from company chairman, in a move to decentralise power at the top level, the Nikkei business daily reported on Sunday. Under Nissan's current corporate charter, the position of board chair is automatically appointed to head the company board, the Nikkei said citing a source. Former Chairman Carlos Ghosn had filled both roles prior to his arrest in November for under-reporting his salary for eight years.

    Global stocks traded lower Friday following weakening inflation data from China and the biggest decline in U.S. retail sales since 2009. Slowing data from the world's two biggest economies added pressure to U.S.-China trade talks, which wrapped up Friday in Beijing with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin citing "productive" meetings with Vice Premier Liu He.

    Asian stocks fell on Friday, retreating from four-month highs after data out of China raised concerns over deflationary pressures building in the world's second biggest economy.
