    Global Markets: Stocks rise on U.S.-China trade hopes; oil up again

    An index of stocks across the globe hit a more than four-month high on Wednesday on hopes for progress in trade talks between the United States and China, and a supportive backdrop from major central banks also helped push risk assets higher. Crude prices rose to their 2019 highs helped by output cuts from top producers as well as U.S. sanctions on OPEC members Iran and Venezuela. Stocks started with a rally in Asia that pushed the MSCI world equity index to its highest since October after U.S. President Donald Trump said negotiations with China were going well and suggested he was open to extending the deadline to complete them beyond March 1.

    Global stocks edge higher on increasing trade deal optimism after President Donald Trump says March 1 deadline not a "magical" date in U.S.-China talks. Gains capped ahead of Fed minutes as investors seek confirmation of central bank's neutral stance on rates amid slowing economic data at home and abroad. Global stocks traded cautiously higher again Wednesday, with markets in Asia touching fresh four-month highs, amid increasing signs of tangible progress in U.S.-China trade talks and a suggestion from President Donald Trump that negotiations could be extended if the two sides fail to reach an agreement by the first of next month.

    Asian Stock Traders “Cautiously Optimistic”; U.S. Wants Stable Yuan as Part of Trade Deal

    The offshore Chinese Yuan rallied sharply higher on Tuesday after Bloomberg News reported that the U.S. is requesting that China keep the Yuan stable as part of the trade deal. The move would be aimed at mediating any effort by the Chinese to devalue the Yuan to counter American tariffs, people familiar with the situation told Bloomberg News.

    Nikkei rises as U.S.-China trade deal hopes boost sentiment

    Japan's Nikkei closed at another nine-week high on Wednesday, as hopes for U.S.-China trade talks helped lift cyclical stocks such as autos and index-heavyweights including SoftBank Group. The gain came despite Japan's exports suffering their biggest drop in more than two years in January, as China shipments tumbled and orders for machinery goods fell sharply. "There are concerns about Japan's falling exports, but to investors who haven't caught up with the recent rally in Japanese stocks, there is a risk that they will fall behind the market's further rise if the trade talks go well," said Hiroyuki Ueno, a senior strategist at Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Asset Management.

    Nikkei rises to new 2-month high on U.S.-China trade deal optimism

    Japan's Nikkei rose to more than two-month highs on Wednesday morning, as progress in U.S.-China trade talks helped lift cyclical stocks such as autos and electronic equipment firms. The optimism comes despite Japan's exports in January posting their biggest decline in more than two years as China shipments tumbled and orders for its machinery goods fell sharply. The market largely shrugged off weak trade data, which showed that Japan's exports fell 8.4 percent in January from a year earlier, focusing instead on stronger prospects of a potential U.S.-China trade deal that could boost equity markets.

    Gold hits 10-month peak on growth worries; dollar dips

    Gold prices rose to a 10-month high on Tuesday as concerns over a global economic slowdown spurred a safe-haven bid and were also supported by a weaker U.S. dollar, which fell on optimism for a breakthrough in U.S.-China trade talks. A gauge of global stock markets rose modestly along with gains on Wall Street, while Europe sagged under falling bank shares and concerns that a car tariff could hurt the region's exports to the United States. Traders kept a close eye on the new round of talks between the United States and China to resolve their trade spat.

    Nikkei inches up to 2-month high, SoftBank Group drops

    Japanese shares ticked up to new two-month highs on Tuesday on hopes of a breakthrough in U.S.-China trade talks, though the gains were led by defensive shares as investors remained cautious on the global economic outlook. Nikkei share average edged up 0.10 percent to 21,302.65, its highest close since mid-December. SoftBank Group shares dropped 3.3 percent, after the Wall Street Journal reported that its key investors, including Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund, were unhappy with the high valuation of its flagship Vision Fund.

    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.
