WEEKLY MARKET OUTLOOK WEBINAR

PHILLIP SUMMARY

The U.S. and China close in on a trade deal, despite appearances; Hong Kong is hotter than ever on the IPO scene and private equity firms are bracing for recession. Here are some of the things people in markets are talking about today.

Following the more positive view of trade talk progress, Asian stocks were set for gains after U.S. stocks climbed and Treasury yields rose. Futures on equities in Japan, Hong Kong and Australia pointed higher, while the dollar slipped. The pound touched a seven-month high against the greenback as traders stepped up bets for a Conservative victory in next week’s election. Elsewhere, oil rallied as Energy Information Administration data showed U.S. crude inventories fell more than expected, and gold slipped.
