    Stocks Tumble on Growth, Trade-Tension Pessimism: Markets Wrap

Caterpillar and DowDuPont led declines in the Dow Jones Industrial Average of more than 400 points at one point. The S&P 500 briefly pared losses after presidential adviser Lawrence Kudlow said a Financial Times report that the U.S. canceled a preliminary meeting with Chinese officials was untrue.

    Equities slump on growth, trade worries

    A gauge of world stock markets fell on Tuesday as concerns over global growth and trade gave investors incentive to look toward safe-haven assets such as the Japanese yen and government bonds. Investors shunned risk assets like equities as the International Monetary Fund warned of a dimmer outlook on Monday, China confirmed its slowest growth rate in nearly 30 years, and as Brexit uncertainty continued to drag on sentiment. "There's so much in the background - trade, government shutdown, earnings season - you're going to have these big swings in the markets based on the latest data," said Paul Nolte, portfolio manager at Kingsview Asset Management in Chicago.

    Foxconn says trying to hire 50,000 people in first quarter after job cut reports

    Taiwan's Foxconn (2317.TW), assembler of Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) iPhones, on Tuesday said it was trying to recruit for more than 50,000 positions across its China campuses for the January-March quarter, amid reports of mass lay-offs. The world's largest contract manufacturer, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, said in a stock exchange filing that changes in employee numbers were part of its usual adjustments based on global strategy and clients' needs. Last week, the Nikkei reported that Foxconn had let go around 50,000 contract workers in China since October, months earlier than normal.

    Asian stocks slip amid concerns about the global economic outlook

    The International Monetary Fund reduced its estimate for global growth on Monday, cautioning that the economic momentum seen in recent years is slowing. The revision in its forecast comes on the back of China reporting its slowest growth in almost three decades last year. In the Greater China region, the Shanghai composite declined about 1.18 percent to close at around 2,579.70 and the Shenzhen component fell 1.435 percent to finish its trading day at approximately 7,516.79.

    U.S. Futures, Europe Stocks Dip Amid Growth Noise: Markets Wrap

    The dollar was steady and bonds in Europe were mixed. With American markets shut for a holiday, there seemed to be little to inspire either contracts on the S&P 500 Index or the Stoxx Europe 600 Index, with the latter paring the worst of an early drop but still ending slightly down. News that the IMF was cutting its global growth forecast to the weakest in three years -- in part because of softening demand in Europe -- merely cemented an already downbeat mood.

    Global stock markets falter after China data confirms economic slowdown

    European shares fell on Monday from six-week highs as a slowdown in China's economy stalled a global equity rally, but sterling rallied to the day's highs after Prime Minister Theresa May promised to be more "flexible" with lawmakers over Brexit. Trade in general was subdued with U.S. markets closed for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day but equity prices were hit after data showed the Chinese economy, the world's second biggest, grew 6.4 percent in the fourth quarter from a year earlier, matching levels last seen in early 2009 during the global financial crisis. A pan-European equity index (.STOXX) fell 1.3 percent, below six-week highs hit on Friday while Germany shares (.GDAXI), heavily exposed to exports to China, was 0.6 percent lower on the day.

    Global Stocks Retreat on IMF Economic Downgrade, China Growth Concerns

    Global stocks retreated Monday as investors reacted the weakest growth data from China in nearly thirty years and a downgrade to the world's economic forecast from the IMF. China's National Bureau of Statistics said fourth quarter GDP slowed to 6.4%, taking the full-year advance to 6.4%, down from 6.8% in 2017 and the slowest since 1990. The International Monetary Fund cut its global economic growth forecast for the second time in three months following the China reading, citing concerns over unresolved trade conflicts between Washington, Brussels and Beijing and slowing activity in Europe.

    Global stocks were mixed Monday as investors reacted the weakest growth data from China in nearly thirty years in favor of a cautious bet that stimulus from Beijing, and a trade deal with Washington, will ignite growth in the world's second largest economy. China's National Bureau of Statistics said fourth quarter GDP slowed to 6.4%, taking the full-year advance to 6.4%, down from 6.8% in 2017 and the slowest since 1990.

    China GDP Slows To Weakest Pace Since 1990 as Trump Trade War Bites Beijing

    China's economy grew at its slowest pace in nearly 30 years over 2018, official data from the National Bureau of Statistics confirmed Monday, as a damaging trade war with the United States, and efforts to curb domestic pollution and reckless lending, took a major bite out of the world's second largest economy. Domestic GDP grew 6.4% from October to December, the NBS said, taking total growth for 2018 to 6.6 % - the lowest rate since 1990 following the Tiananmen Square massacre and notably lower than that 6.8% rate recorded over 2017. "As expected, China's economy slowed last quarter but conditions appear to have improved somewhat in December," wrote Julian Evans-Pritchard, senior China economist at Capital Economics in the hours after the GDP data was released.

    Nikkei ends at month high, softer yen boosts exporters

    Japan's Nikkei advanced to a more than one-month high on Monday, tracking gains in U.S. shares that helped buoy cyclical stocks such as shippers, while a weaker yen boosted exporters. Analysts said the Nikkei was on track to reach 21,000 points, a level it had traded last month before a year-end rout. "It would be a bit difficult to rise towards 22,000 with current catalysts but the market is recovering," said Shoji Hirakawa, chief global strategist at Tokai Tokyo Research Institute.
