    Here’s the Asia Stocks Verdict: Bulls Are Reluctant to Run

    Yes, Chinese and Hong Kong shares rallied after their mid-day breaks, but it took a whopping four hours for that to happen after China propped up the market earlier on Friday. The fact of the matter is, a 2 percent to 3 percent climb on Friday won’t remove China’s title as the world’s worst stock market. The bounce has certainly pulled other Asian markets up with the mainland rally (Shenzhen stocks climbed 2.6 percent) in afternoon trading, but the MSCI Asia Pacific Index was still down 0.2 percent as of 5 p.m. in Hong Kong after dropping as much as 1 percent earlier.

    Stocks Mixed; Bonds Edge Lower After Fed Minutes: Markets Wrap

    Treasuries declined and the dollar gained as Fed minutes appeared to lean toward the chance of more hikes in the future. Gains by banking giants Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley couldn’t counter concerns about China that hit Technology stocks, as well as worries about the Fed’s path that seeped into rates-sensitive shares.
