    Stocks Retreat on Geopolitical Tensions; Yen Rises: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- Most Asian stocks declined and U.S. futures slipped Tuesday as traders mulled geopolitical strains and positioning for the upcoming U.S.-China summit meeting. Treasuries, gold and the yen pushed higher.Shares in China and Hong Kong led losses, with benchmarks in Tokyo, Seoul and Sydney reversing earlier gains. Iran suggested new sanctions had closed off a diplomatic solution to the dispute with Washington, while U.S. officials sought to play down expectations for a highly-anticipated meeting between President Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping. Meanwhile, Bloomberg reported Trump has recently mused to confidants about withdrawing from a longstanding defense treaty with Japan that he thinks treats the U.S. unfairly.Shanghai and Hong Kong benchmarks dropped over 1%, with China Merchants Bank tumbling as much as 9.8%, as analysts cited a Washington Post report about a U.S. investigation into sanctions violations with regard to North Korea.Elsewhere, stock markets appear to have entered a holding pattern ahead of the G-20 summit in Japan, which presents a pivot point for trade relations between the U.S. and China. Sentiment remains fragile as investors mulled tensions between the U.S. and Iran. On Tuesday, traders will keep a close eye on Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, who discusses monetary policy in a speech in New York.It’s “a pretty good guess that we won’t see a whole lot of movement in front of the big upcoming meetings (G-20 and OPEC),” wrote Matt Maley, equity strategist at Miller Tabak & Co. “The results of those meetings should be quite important to the stock market’s next move.”Here are some key events coming up:Fed Chairman Jerome Powell speaks at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York Tuesday. He’ll discuss the challenges facing the U.S. economy.MSCI Inc. announces results of its 2019 Market Classification Review on Tuesday, including whether Kuwait gets upgraded from frontier to emerging-market status.The Group of 20 summit is in Osaka, Japan on Friday and Saturday.These are the main moves in markets:StocksThe MSCI Asia Pacific Index fell 0.3% as of 1:15 p.m. in Tokyo.Topix Index fell 0.3%.Hang Seng Index fell 1.3%.Shanghai Composite Index fell 1.8%.S&P/ASX 200 fell 0.1%.Kospi Index fell 0.1%.S&P 500 futures dipped 0.2%.

    Japanese shares dip but losses limited ahead of G20

    Japan's Nikkei share average edged down on Tuesday amid brewing U.S.-Iran tensions and with a stronger yen weighing on exporters, but losses were limited ahead of a G20 summit, which could determine near-term risk appetite direction. U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese Xi Jinping are expected to discuss trade issues on the sidelines of the June 28-29 G20 summit in Japan. "It's a quiet market in which sellers are few and sparse ahead of the Trump-Xi meeting at the G20," said Takashi Hiroki, chief strategist at Monex Securities.

    Asian shares were hamstrung by trade worries Tuesday as expectations of more dovish talk from the Federal Reserve pushed down Treasury yields and the dollar, while propelling gold prices to six-year peaks.

Trump is slated to meet one-on-one with at least eight world leaders at the G20 summit in Osaka, including China's President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    U.S. Stocks Fall; Treasuries Rise, Dollar Drops: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks edged away from records as investors weighed expectations for easier monetary policy against concerns about a slowing global economy. Treasuries gained, while the dollar dropped.The S&P 500 fell for a second session, stalling below last week’s all-time high that was fueled by the prospect of rate cuts. Health-care paced losses as Bristol-Meyers Squibb Co. tumbled after the company said it will strip out a top drug from its merger with Celgene Corp. to get regulator approval. Energy producers dropped in the wake of new U.S. sanctions on Iran. The Russell 2000 Index slumped.Investors in risk assets have continued to shrug off signs of an economic slowdown and focus on the increasingly dovish tone at central banks around the world. That attention will intensify Tuesday when Fed Chair Jerome Powell discusses monetary policy. But sentiment could be at a crossroads as the conflict between the America and Iran has ramped up, and the meeting between China’s President Xi Jinping and Donald Trump this week at the Group of 20 conference in Japan presents a pivot point for trade relations between the two countries.The 10-year Treasury yield dropped to 2.02%, while West Texas crude rose toward $58 a barrel. The euro touched a three-month high against the dollar even as data showed that a slump in German business confidence deepened in June.It’s “a pretty good guess that we won’t see a whole lot of movement in front of the big upcoming meetings (G20 and OPEC),” wrote Matt Maley, equity strategist at Miller Tabak & Co. “Given the meeting between President Trump & President Xi at the one and the impact the situation with Iran could/should have on the other, the results of those meetings should be quite important to the stock market’s next move.”Elsewhere, gold extended its advance above $1,400 an ounce, while Bitcoin surged toward 11,000.Here are some key events coming up:Fed Chairman Jerome Powell speaks at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York Tuesday.

    U.S. stocks look to extend gains this week, and possibly re-test all-time highs, as investors bet on both central bank support and a breakthrough in trade talks between Washington and Beijing. Global gains were tempered, however, by rising military tensions between the U.S. and Iran, as well as the threat of "significant" sanctions on Tehran following last week's downing of an unmanned U.S. military drone. Global oil prices edge higher as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo heads to the Gulf for talks with U.S. allies and prepares to announces Tehran sanctions.

    Uniqlo Owner Considers Paying Star Employees $280,000 After 3 Years

    (Bloomberg) -- Asia’s largest retailer is hoping that a $280,000 annual salary and a managerial title in three years will lure top talent as it grapples with one of the tightest labor markets in Japanese history.The salary being considered by Uniqlo owner Fast Retailing Co. would be more than three times the average pay at the company, and nearly 10 times the national average in Japan for those with similar employment tenures.The higher pay is meant to draw in talented people to Fast Retailing and is being considered by Chief Executive Officer Tadashi Yanai, the company said. He is mulling putting the higher salaries into effect next spring. The effort follows a move earlier this year to raise compensation for some new hires.The company is considering promising young talent a move into management within three years with annual salaries of 20 million to 30 million yen ($279,329) for those sent to the U.S. or Europe, and more than 10 million yen for those in Japan, according to a Nikkei report from an interview with Yanai.As Japan struggles with an aging population and a shortfall of young workers, businesses are dismantling previously sacred cultural norms, like the correlation of pay with experience, and the notion of lifetime employment. Tech companies in Japan have made similar moves to draw in young talent, promising million dollar salaries and raising starting pay by 20 percent for top candidates.The average Fast Retailing annual pay was about 8.77 million yen as of August 2018, according to company filings. The lowest salary at the company was about 4 million yen a year, the Nikkei report said, citing previous data from the company’s recruiting website. Nationally, the average annual salary for workers with up to four years of work experience was 3.1 million yen in 2017, according to figures compiled by the National Tax Agency.Fast Retailing assigns most fresh recruits to work in Uniqlo stores, but under the new system, more will be sent to specialized departments that suit their skills in areas including information technology and design, according to the Nikkei report. The company will then choose candidates for managerial positions in Japan and overseas after three to five years.\--With assistance from Ryan Lovdahl.To contact the reporters on this story: Lisa Du in Tokyo at ldu31@bloomberg.net;Chikafumi Hodo in Tokyo at chodo@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Shamim Adam at sadam2@bloomberg.net, Dave McCombs, John McCluskeyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Apple weighs 15-30% capacity shift out of China amid trade war

    Apple has asked its major suppliers to evaluate the cost implications of shifting 15-30 per cent of their production capacity from China to south-east Asia as it prepares for a fundamental restructuring of its supply chain, the Nikkei Asian Review has learnt. Apple has decided the risks of relying so heavily on manufacturing in China, as it has done for decades, are too great and even rising, several people told Nikkei. “With or without the final round of the $300bn tariff, Apple is following the big trend [to diversify production],” giving itself more flexibility, the person added.

    U.S. Stocks Drop as Iran Tension Slows Risk Rally: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks closed lower after touching record highs as an escalation of tensions with Iran cooled this week’s rally in risk assets sparked by dovish central banks. Oil surged.The S&P 500 fell for the first time this week even after hitting a fresh intraday high, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average briefly surpassed its Oct. 3 closing record before finishing in the red. The index whipsawed Friday with volumes higher than the 30-day average as futures and options expired. The dollar was lower for a fourth day in the wake of the Federal Reserve’s dovish signals earlier in the week, while gold traded around $1,400 an ounce for the first time since 2013. U.S. crude topped $57 a barrel.“The last time we had a quad-witching day like this we had similar volatility,” said Sean O’Hara, president of Pacer ETFs Distributors. “Bigger picture issue is I think people are trying to sort of digest all of the news of the week and weigh that against the potential threats in Iran.”The risk-on mood was damped after President Donald Trump said he approved strikes overnight against Iran in retaliation for downing a U.S. drone, but then called off the operation. West Texas Intermediate posted its biggest weekly increase since December 2016."If you look at the markets today, it’s a pretty impressive performance to basically be flat," considering the news coming out of Iran, said David Donabedian, chief investment officer at CIBC Private Wealth Management. “It’s a testament to how important monetary policy is and how much the market is hanging its hat on the Fed here in the second half of the year."Policy makers in the U.S., Europe and Australia were among those signaling a readiness to do more to support growth this week, helping fuel gains for equities while putting increased pressure on sovereign bond yields. Next week, the trade issue is back up: Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are set to meet during the Group of 20 summit in Japan.The euro strengthened and most European bonds slipped after data showed economic activity in the region improved in June.

    Asian stocks slipped on Friday, as U.S.-Iran tensions and anxieties over Sino-U.S. trade talks left markets in the region struggling to match the euphoria on Wall Street over a possible U.S. interest rate cut next month. Fears of a military confrontation in the Middle East Gulf were raised after Iran shot down a U.S. military drone. The New York Times reported that U.S. President Donald Trump had approved military strikes on Friday against Iran in retaliation, but pulled back from launching the attacks.
