    Markets Should Embrace Volatility While It Lasts

    Buy stocks when there’s news that the U.S. and China are making headway in resolving the escalating trade war. To recap, stocks were weighed down early Monday after news broke over the weekend that China summoned U.S. Ambassador Terry Branstad to explain the U.S. request to extradite Huawei Technologies Co. Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou from Canada, where she is being held. Stocks then opened big on Tuesday on the news that U.S. and China officials held a call to discuss trade, followed by a Bloomberg News report that China is mulling a proposal to reduce tariffs on cars made in the U.S. to 15 percent from the current 40 percent — bringing the U.S. back in line with what other countries pay.

    Hedge-Fund Veteran Shuns Volatility Wagers This Time Round

    Stephen Diggle, who co-founded a hedge fund that made $2.7 billion on volatility wagers during the global financial crisis, isn’t betting on similar fluctuations now even as central banks begin to roll back years of extraordinary stimulus. Governments and central banks worldwide now see themselves as “guardians of the capital markets” and will always be ready to provide liquidity to prevent a repeat of the unprecedented price swings a decade ago, said Diggle, the chief executive officer of family office Vulpes Investment Management. “Generally we’ll have less super liquidity in future, so I expect generally slightly more volatility,” said Diggle, who is based in Singapore.
