"Any time you get some semblance of good news on trade, you've had this tendency to see a pretty sharp rally," said Liz Ann Sonders, chief investment strategist for Charles Schwab.

    [$$] Bangladesh aims to achieve 10% annual growth by 2021

Ms Hasina has overseen almost a decade of consistent economic expansions of about 6 to 7 per cent, with the economy growing 7.86 per cent in real terms in the fiscal year that ended in June.

    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.
