    U.S. Stocks Drift on Trade Jitters; Dollar Climbs: Markets Wrap

    The dollar jumped after the European Central Bank sounded a cautious note on growth. The S&P 500 Index finished the session little changed, with about three decliners in the benchmark for every two that rose. The Dow Jones Industrial Average eked out a gain, led by Procter & Gamble and McDonald’s. The greenback edged higher as U.S. jobless claims came in below estimates.

    U.S. Stocks Advance on Trade Outlook; Pound Climbs: Markets Wrap

    The S&P 500 rose 0.5 percent after an afternoon slump that pared its gain by more than half. All rallies are suspect,” said Michael Antonelli, the managing director at Robert W. Baird & Co. The early gains came as signs emerged that trade tensions would ease, first after the arrested Huawei executive was granted bail and then when President Donald Trump suggested he could use his influence to calm that situation as part of a deal with China.

    U.S. Stocks End a Volatile Day Where They Started: Markets Wrap

    The S&P 500 Index started out strong, took a turn down, then recovered from the day’s lows as key Senate leaders signaled a desire to avoid a government shutdown hours after Donald Trump threatened to do so in a spat over funding for his border wall. Carmakers rose as China signaled it may cut tariffs on auto imports, but investors were cautious about a broader deal. U.S. markets have been whipsawed in recent weeks as traders searched Trump’s tweets for clues about the outlook for trade talks, tried to decide if a stock selloff could prompt the Federal Reserve to pare back rate increases and evaluated economic data that signaled a slowdown may be coming.

    That U.S.-China Trade Call Is Failing to Calm Asia Stock Markets

    While news that top Chinese and American trade officials talked over the phone helped the region’s shares almost erase early Tuesday losses, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index soon headed back in the red. There’s been a deluge of bad news in recent days -- from the unsolved case about the arrest of Huawei Technologies Co.’s chief financial officer to the surprise exit of India’s central-bank governor on Monday evening -- and the optimism seen after the 90-day trade truce between the U.S. and China is far gone. Since Dec. 3, Asian stock markets have already lost more than $1 trillion in market value, with the regional gauge trading at a six-week low.

    Stocks Roar Back, Led by Rebound in Tech Shares: Markets Wrap

The pound tumbled as traders took a grim view of the outlook for the U.K. after Theresa May delayed a crucial Brexit vote. Investors found an excuse to buy the dip Monday after the S&P 500 fell to the lowest intraday level since April, continuing a volatile period for U.S. equities.

    Investors in ‘Get-Me-Out-of-Here Mood’ as Asian Stocks Spiral

    The sell-off in global equities deepened in Asia hours after Chinese economic data released over the weekend signaled a further weakening of both domestic and international demand in November. Adding insult to injury, tensions have ratcheted up after the arrest of Huawei Technologies Co. Chief Financial Officer, with China’s Vice Foreign Minister having summoned the U.S. Ambassador to China in a protest over her capture on Saturday. Australia was the worst performer in the region with Japan’s, whose economy shrank more than forecast, while China’s stocks dropped with the offshore yuan weakening for a fourth day.

    The US S&P 500 tumbled as much as 2.9 per cent at one point, sending investors scrambling for safer assets, but clawed its way back to end the day off 0.2 per cent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 0.3 per cent, after falling as much as 3.1 per cent, while the Nasdaq eked out a 0.4 per cent gain by day’s end. The turbulence sent investors scrambling for the safety of highly rated government debt, pushing the 10-year Treasury yield down to a four-month low of 2.82 per cent, before settling at 2.90 per cent, down 2 basis points for the day.
