U.S. stocks climbed Friday, notching their fourth consecutive week of gains, as the fears of an economic slowdown that gripped markets in December have subsided in the new year. Data showing a healthy labor market, as well as signals from central bankers that the Federal Reserve will be flexible with monetary policy, have offered relief to investors who were spooked late last year that the Fed’s pace of interest-rate increases could jolt an economy on shaky footing. “Investor sentiment has really improved from the turmoil just before Christmas,” said Brian Jacobsen, multisector strategist at Wells Fargo Asset Management.
Asia stocks test one-month highs on optimism that trade talks will bear fruit, with Japan leading the charge thanks to improved risk appetite and a weaker yen. Global oil prices jump after OPEC reports the biggest monthly drop in output in two years in December as it prepped for the start of 1.2 million in agreed production cuts in 2019. U.S. equity futures indicate a modestly stronger opening on Wall Street ahead of December manufacturing data and fourth quarter earnings from Schlumberger, Sun Trust Banks and State Street.

Stocks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Tokyo advanced Friday after investors saw signs of possible progress toward settling the U.S.-Chinese tariff war.
Japan's Nikkei rose on Friday morning to its best level in a month tracking a rally on Wall Street as hopes of a resolution to the U.S.-China trade dispute boosted risk appetite, while motor maker Nidec tumbled on its dismal earnings outlook. Market sentiment was lifted by a Wall Street Journal report that U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin discussed lifting some or all tariffs imposed on Chinese imports and suggested offering a tariff rollback during trade discussions scheduled for Jan. 30.
Asia Pacific markets traded mostly higher on Friday as investors cheered a report saying American officials may be weighing the possibility of easing tariffs on China, in a bid to push forward trade talks. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin proposed lifting all or some of the tariffs on Chinese imports to give Beijing a reason to make deeper concessions in ongoing trade talks between the two countries, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday, citing sources.
Stocks rose following a report that said some Trump administration officials are pushing for an easing of trade tensions with China. Treasuries declined. The S&P 500 pushed above its average price for the past 50 days, a level it hadn’t breached since December, after the Wall Street Journal cited people close to discussions saying Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is a proponent of easing tariffs.
U.S. stocks flipped between small gains and losses Thursday after two sessions of advances as investors parsed a raft of earnings reports and trade developments. Trade and other political uncertainties have helped depress investor sentiment in recent months, given the potential implications for economic growth and corporate supply chains. Among decliners, shares of Morgan Stanley fell 4.5% after the bank’s fourth-quarter profit missed expectations. The company’s lows of the day had put the stock on pace for its largest percentage loss since June 2016.
A weak earnings report from Morgan Stanley had US futures down about -0.35% in the early pre-market session. The UK FTSE 100 was the biggest loser in early Thursday trading, down more than -0.80% at midday. In Asia, the Hang Seng led the losses as traders and investors take advantage of the liquidity event.
The company will book a loss of about 300 billion yen ($2.8 billion) after suspending indefinitely its plans to build reactors at the site in Wylfa, Wales. Theresa May’s government announced the U.K. will outline a new strategy later this year. “Nuclear is an important part of our mix,” James Slack, a spokesman for the prime minister, told reporters in London on Thursday.
Asian shares finished mostly lower Thursday after strong earnings reports lifted indexes on Wall Street, but a report that the U.S. was investigating China’s Huawei for allegedly stealing trade secrets from American companies limited gains.
TOKYO/PARIS (Reuters) - Renault executives and French government officials were planning to meet Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa in Japan on Thursday, Japanese media said, as the automakers consider their partnership in the wake of alliance Chairman Carlos Ghosn's arrest. Ghosn, arrested and detained in Tokyo since Nov. 19, has been indicted in Japan on charges of under-reporting his salary for eight years through March 2018, and temporarily transferring personal investment losses to Nissan Motor during the global financial crisis. Nissan ousted him as chairman following his arrest, with Mitsubishi Motor - the third member of the automaking alliance - soon following suit.
Japan's Nikkei dipped on Thursday, reversing earlier gains, as investors remained wary about the outlook for riskier assets amid lingering worries about the global economy and trade war tensions. The Nikkei has recovered roughly 8 percent from an eight-month low at the end of December, when massive risk aversion in global markets took a toll. "The Nikkei is now back in the premises of the 20,500 threshold, and this appears to have invited selling from participants looking to cut some of their losses suffered during the slide in December," said Takashi Hiroki, chief strategist at Monex Securities.
Japanese government bond prices were steady to firmer on Thursday, underpinned by decent results of the Bank of Japan's purchase of five- to 10-year bonds and as Japanese shares ran out of steam after rallies in recent weeks. The BOJ's buying of 430 billion yen ($3.95 billion) JGBs with five to 10 years to maturity drew limited offers from markets players, supporting market sentiment. The Nikkei average dipped slightly, hit by speculation that the BOJ may reduce its buying in funds linked to the Nikkei and allocate more money to funds linked to the broader Topix index .
Japan's Nikkei share average started higher on Thursday but quickly reversed course as investors remained cautious about the outlook for riskier assets. The Nikkei was down 0.22 percent at 20,397.75 as of 0205 GMT. Lifted by an overnight bounce on Wall Street, the index initially rose as much as 0.7 percent to 20,571.75.
China's central bank pumped almost $83 billion into its banking system in a single day, which eased concerns over a potential funding squeeze in the economy ahead of a major festive season, analysts said.
