Global equities rose after the Financial Times reported that the United States was considering rolling back levies on $112 billion of Chinese imports as a concession to a partial deal, which could be signed this month, according to U.S. officials. "If the U.S. does roll back existing tariffs, the positive spillover will extend beyond financial markets, as such a move would alleviate the downwards pressures on global trade conditions as well," said Han Tan, market analyst at FXTM in a note.
* China C.bank cuts medium-term lending facility interest rate * Philippines hits over three-month high * Malaysia down ahead of cenbank rate decision By Sameer Manekar Nov 5 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Tuesday on signs that Washington and Beijing were nearing a trade truce, while fresh stimulus measures in China, the region's largest trading partner, also supported buying. "The most significant change on the trade front compared with just three months ago is that both sides, which were very negative on the deal, now want to get something signed," said Joel Ng, analyst, KGI Securities. Meanwhile, China's central bank cut the interest rate on its medium-term lending facility (MLF) for the first time since early 2016, in a bid to shore up liquidity amid slowing economic growth.
Adding to the cautious mood was a Reuters report that an interim trade deal between the United States and China might not be completed in time for signing in Chile next month as expected. Philippine shares fell as consumer and industrial stocks weighed on the benchmark.
