    U.S. Stocks End Mixed as Dollar, Bonds Decline: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks finished the week mixed as Treasury yields jumped to six-week highs and the dollar slipped.All three major U.S. indexes still closed higher for a third consecutive week after being whipsawed by a rotation from growth to value shares by some investors. Apple weighed on the Nasdaq Friday. Equity indexes in Europe and Asia finished the week in the green thanks to easing trade fears and a new round of central bank stimulus.“We’re going to see volatility in the market,” said Alan Adelman, a senior fund manager at Frost Investment Advisors, which oversees $4.7 billion. “We’ve seen it this week -- it may not come in absolute price moves -- but we’re going to see volatility.”The pound posted the biggest weekly gain since May after the Times reported possible progress in Brexit negotiations related to the contentious Irish backstop. Prime Minister Boris Johnson will meet EU President Jean-Claude Juncker next week. The euro strengened this week and most government bonds retreated in the wake of the European Central Bank’s moves to support growth, with one policy maker saying a new easing package was a possible mistake.Optimism over a trade deal is growing ahead of expected high-level talks next month between the world’s two largest economies.“With holiday spending on the horizon and inflation at bay, we could continue to see momentum in the retail sector,” said Mike Loewengart, vice president of investment strategy at E*TRADE Financial Corp. “A healthy consumer can help inject some energy into other sectors of the economy. That said, trade tensions are a key focal point and rising tariffs between the U.S. and China could threaten this critical indicator.”Elsewhere, WTI crude fluctuated around $55 a barrel, poised for a weekly drop following a warning from the International Energy Agency of a “daunting” surplus of crude in 2020.Here are the main moves in markets: \--With assistance from Andrew Cinko and Laura Curtis.To contact the reporters on this story: Vildana Hajric in New York at vhajric1@bloomberg.net;Sarah Ponczek in New York at sponczek2@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jeremy Herron at jherron8@bloomberg.net, Dave LiedtkaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    BOJ seen ramping up stimulus this year, some bet on action next week: Reuters poll

    An increasing number of economists expect the Bank of Japan to ramp up stimulus this year, with well over a third of them polled by Reuters betting the central bank would act next week. Japan is not alone in having to consider more stimulus, with central banks globally facing increasing pressure over the past few months to top up monetary support for their economies as the U.S.-China trade war hurts trade and business sentiment. Sources have told Reuters BOJ policymakers are more open to discussing the possibility of expanding stimulus at their Sept. 18-19 board meeting, and are also discussing ways of deeping negative rates at minimal cost.
