    Nissan panel to recommend outside director to chair board - Nikkei

    A Nissan Motor governance committee will recommend the appointment of an external director as board chairman, a role distinct from company chairman, in a move to decentralise power at the top level, the Nikkei business daily reported on Sunday. Under Nissan's current corporate charter, the position of board chair is automatically appointed to head the company board, the Nikkei said citing a source. Former Chairman Carlos Ghosn had filled both roles prior to his arrest in November for under-reporting his salary for eight years.

    Progress in the U.S.-China trade talks helped send world stock markets broadly higher on Friday and pulled investors out of the safety of government bonds.

    U.S. Stocks End Week Higher Boosted by Trade Talk: Markets Wrap

    Equities surged to a 10-week high as the U.S. consumer outlook brightened and positive developments in China trade talks overshadowed lingering concerns about global growth. The S&P 500 Index closed at session highs Friday, with all sectors gaining, on reports that the U.S. and China had reached consensus in principle on the main topics in their trade negotiations. U.S. consumer sentiment rebounded from a two-year low, further fueling the rally and bolstering the case that yesterday’s dire retail sales figures were out of sync with reality.

    Stocks Slide as Growth Concerns Deepen, Trump Raises Stakes in Funding Battle

    Global stocks traded lower Friday following weakening inflation data from China and the biggest decline in U.S. retail sales since 2009. Slowing data from the world's two biggest economies added pressure to U.S.-China trade talks, which wrapped up Friday in Beijing with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin citing "productive" meetings with Vice Premier Liu He. European stocks stocks slip lower, but losses are held in check as the euro remains wedded to a multi-month low amid concerns over regional growth prospects and further monetary loosening from the European Central Bank.

    Asian stocks retreat as lacklustre China, U.S. data weigh

    Asian stocks fell on Friday, retreating from four-month highs after data out of China raised concerns over deflationary pressures building in the world's second biggest economy. Data released on Friday showed China's factory-gate inflation slowed for a seventh straight month in January to its weakest pace since September 2016 amid cooling domestic demand. The broader equity markets had already been under pressure after Thursday's weak U.S. retail sales figures triggered fresh doubts about the strength of the world's largest economy.

    Stocks Fade Into Close Amid Weak Data, Border Spat: Markets Wrap

    U.S. stocks edged lower in listless trading as disappointing economic data and reports the president will declare a national emergency overshadowed news that another government shutdown will be averted. Signs Congress would avert another shutdown boosted sentiment midday and shares drifted until the late slide that came with news that President Donald Trump intends to sign a government funding bill and simultaneously declare a national emergency to get more money for a border wall. Bank stocks were among the hardest hit, as the 10-year Treasury yield briefly sank below 2.65 percent.

    Wall Street Futures Tumble After Weakest December Retail Sales in a Decade

    U.S. equity futures turned sharply red Thursday after data showed the weakest reading for December retail sales in nine years, erasing earlier gains linked to progress in trade talks between Washington and Beijing and data showing a surprise jump in January China export activity. Retail sales fell 1.2% in December from the previous month, the Commerce Department, the biggest drop since September 2009 and well shy of the 0.2% gain that was forecast by economists. Although data was partially impacted by the 35-day government shutdown, the weakness in such a key metric of U.S. economic health -- consumer spending is responsible for around two thirds of GDP growth -- triggered sharp reversals in U.S. equity futures.

    U.S. equity futures suggest solid gains on Wall Street amid signs of potential progress in U.S. China trade talks and data showing that country's exports rebounded firmly in the first month of the year. China's U.S. trade surplus eases to $27.3 billion, the lowest since May 2018, as imports fall 42% thanks in part to steep declines in soybean purchases.

    (Bloomberg) -- There is not much to be enthusiastic about when it comes to Europe. Sluggish growth, low inflation, political instability, Brexit and trade wars are part of a long list that doesn’t inspire optimism, let alone confidence. After Germany narrowly managed to dodge the recession bullet, it remains to be seen whether the old continent is capable of bouncing back.

    Japan's Nikkei brushes 2-month high on firmer Wall Street, softer yen

    Japan's Nikkei share average rose for the third straight session and touched a two-month high on Thursday, lifted by a firmer Wall Street lead and a softer yen, which supported exporter stocks. The Nikkei was up 0.1 percent at 21,166.36 as of 0204 GMT after rising to 21,235.62, its highest since Dec. 18. The advance by the Nikkei was slowed by profit taking, which emerged after the index rose nearly 4 percent in the previous two days amid expectations for reduced U.S.-China trade tensions and Washington avoiding another government shutdown.
