    Stocks Edge Higher With U.S. Futures; Bonds Drift: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- Stocks edged higher in Europe along with U.S. equity futures after a mixed session in Asia as investors digested the Federal Reserve’s signal that American interest rates will remain unchanged throughout 2020, while preparing for the European Central Bank’s policy decision. The euro rose for a fourth day.Gains in the Stoxx Europe 600 Index were led by tech and automaker shares. Equities in Hong Kong and Seoul outperformed, while they slipped in Tokyo, Shanghai and Sydney. S&P 500 futures nudged higher after stocks on Wall Street halted a two-day retreat on Wednesday. Treasury 10-year yields stayed close to 1.8% after the Fed’s comments fueled bets that the bar will be high for any interest-rate hikes.The Fed’s moves and outlook were taken as mildly bullish for both Treasuries and stocks on Wednesday. The decision to leave its benchmark unchanged came in the central bank’s first unanimous vote since May, while Chairman Jerome Powell indicated rates will remain steady unless there’s a meaningful change in the economic outlook.Investors now are shifting their focus from Washington to Frankfurt, where Christine Lagarde will give her debut press conference as ECB President on Thursday, having the chance to shake off the shadow of her predecessor, Mario Draghi. Lagarde has pledged a wide strategy review, and said that current monetary stimulus will remain in place.Traders will then likely turn their attention to whether the world’s top two economies can make enough progress on an interim trade deal to avert the U.S. enacting fresh tariffs on Chinese imports. Thursday may bring news as President Donald Trump is expected to meet with his trade team, according to people familiar with the talks.“The fact is the big event risk remains in place, with the world watching to see if the 15% tariffs kick in,” Chris Weston, head of research at Pepperstone Group Ltd., said in a note Thursday. “What the Fed has delivered is about as much as we could have hoped for in this period.”Elsewhere, Hong Kong’s dollar climbed into the strong half of its trading band against the greenback for the first time since July, boosted by elevated borrowing costs in the city.

    'Black Swan' index flashes yellow: Wall Street is not scared

    The options-based Black Swan index may be signaling surging demand from investors for protection against a stock market crash, but Wall Street analysts see little reason to panic. It tracks the implied volatility of deep out-of-the-money options - that is, contracts that need a large move in the market before they come into play - on the S&P 500 . The gauge is also known as the Black Swan index, a reference to the book "Black Swan" by former options trader Nassim Nicholas Taleb that looks at the potentially catastrophic effects of unpredictable events.

    Fed keeps rates on hold, points to 'favorable' economic outlook next year

    The U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday held interest rates steady and signaled borrowing costs will not change anytime soon, with moderate economic growth and historically low unemployment expected to persist through the 2020 presidential election. In its final policy meeting of a tumultuous year, when it was spurred to cut interest rates three times to forestall a slowdown fueled largely by President Donald Trump's trade war, the U.S. central bank struck a remarkably sanguine tone, confident the actions it had taken so far are working. "Our economic outlook remains a favorable one, despite global developments and ongoing risks," Fed Chair Jerome Powell said in a news conference shortly after the release of the latest policy statement and new quarterly economic projections.
