    Global Markets: Stocks rally, dollar gains on robust U.S. jobs data

    The dollar rose and global equity markets rallied on Friday after data showed U.S. job growth increased by the most in 10 months in November, putting to rest fears of recession and briefly taking the spotlight off the U.S.-China trade talks. U.S. Treasury and German bund yields jumped, while gold slipped as much as 1%, reflecting increased investor appetite for risk. The stronger-than-expected Labor Department data showed steady wage gains and the unemployment rate falling to 3.5%, suggesting consumers will continue to drive the longest economic expansion in U.S. history, now in its 11th year.

    BOJ's low-rate policy not behind megabank's fee moves - Aso

    Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Friday he did not believe the central bank's negative interest rate policy was behind a megabank's decision to consider implementing fees on some banking services. Aso made the comment after Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) confirmed it was weighing such a move, following a report in the Nikkei business daily that the bank was considering fees on dormant accounts and other services. Years of the central bank's heavy money printing have failed to fire up inflation and crushed long-term interest rates near zero, drawing criticism from financial institutions for narrowing their margins and hurting their profits.

    Global stocks rally, dollar gains on robust U.S. jobs data

    The dollar rose and global equity markets jumped on Friday after data showed U.S. job growth increased by the most in 10 months in November, putting to rest recession fears and briefly taking the spotlight off contentious U.S.-China trade talks. U.S. Treasury yields rose, while gold slipped more than 1%, reflecting a rebound in investor appetite for risk as U.S. unemployment dipped to 3.5%, the lowest in nearly half a century. Stocks on Wall Street neared record highs, with the benchmark S&P 500 closing within 0.24% of its peak set nine days ago.

    Global stocks falter on trade uncertainty; sterling gains

    The dollar slid and global equity markets traded little changed on Thursday as enthusiasm over Apple shares was offset by doubts about the likelihood of a "phase one" trade deal before a new round of U.S. tariffs on Chinese imports begins in 10 days. Treasury yields rose on reports indicating a resilient U.S. economy, including a fall in weekly jobless claims and a decline in the U.S. trade deficit, which suggested trade could contribute to growth in the fourth quarter. U.S. President Donald Trump's remarks on trade during his London visit for the NATO summit baffled investors.

    India's services industry returns to growth in November on strong demand - PMI

    India's dominant services sector bounced back to growth in November, expanding at its fastest pace in four months, driven by a strong pick-up in new business, a private sector survey showed on Wednesday. "The main positive to be taken from November's survey was a renewed increase in new work, which provided the platform for growth of services activity and employment whilst resulting in an improvement in business confidence," said Pollyanna De Lima, principal economist at IHS Markit, in a press release. Wednesday's upbeat survey comes after official data showed India's annual economic growth slowed to 4.5% in the July-September quarter, its weakest pace since 2013.

    Tokyo shares sag on fading hopes for US-China deal

    Tokyo stocks ended lower on Wednesday, dragged down by diminished hopes for an imminent US-China trade deal and a stronger yen. "The market started under selling pressure following falls of the three major US indices as President Trump hinted at delays in reaching an agreement in the US-China trade negotiations," Okasan Online Securities said in a note. Bargain hunting also prevented sharper falls in Tokyo, said SMBC Nikko Securities, but China-related shares suffered.

    Wall Street banks bet on rebound in battered Hong Kong stocks

    A number of leading Wall Street banks are advising clients to make heavy bets on Hong Kong stocks, urging them to look again at a market that has been hammered by months of political tumult. On Wednesday, the IMF predicted Hong Kong’s economy would contract 1.2 per cent this year and grow just 1 per cent in 2020 in comparison with a 3 per cent expansion in 2018. Companies listed in the index derive much of their revenue from mainland China, meaning they would benefit from a “phase one” trade deal between the Washington and Beijing.

    Global stocks rally on renewed trade talk optimism, yields rise

    Government debt yields and a gauge of global equity markets rose on Wednesday as sentiment improved after U.S. President Donald Trump said trade talks with China were going "very well" and a news report suggested key differences were being ironed out. The safe-haven yen and Swiss franc fell as Trump's encouraging comments on the U.S.-China trade negotiations boosted "risk-on" sentiment. The dollar index fell after the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported activity in the U.S. services sector slowed more than expected in November amid lingering concerns about trade tensions and worker shortages.

The spending would be earmarked in a supplementary budget for this fiscal year to next March and an annual budget for the coming fiscal year from April. The Nikkei business daily reported on the weekend that the government was considering putting together a large-scale stimulus package with fiscal spending exceeding $92 billion.

    Stocks fall as Trump downplays chances of China trade deal

    Global shares turned lower on Tuesday amid pessimism over a standoff between the U.S. and China and new tensions between the U.S. and France on tariffs. President Donald Trump appeared to downplay the chances for a deal to end the U.S.-China trade war before the end of the year. Speaking in London where he is attending a NATO summit, Trump said that the only limiting factor to reaching an agreement with China is whether he wants to make a deal.

The FTSE 100 index of leading British shares was 0.1% lower at 7,339. Whether markets enjoy a so-called Santa Rally this year will depend largely on how the U.S.-China trade talks pan out over the coming weeks.
