WEEKLY MARKET OUTLOOK WEBINAR

PHILLIP SUMMARY

Stocks in Asia looked set to gain and sovereign bond yields climbed with the yuan amid U.S.-China trade optimism. Futures climbed in Japan, Hong Kong and Australia. The S&P 500 Index rose to a fresh record Thursday, though closed off the highs as the two sides continue to negotiate over where and when a “Phase One” deal would be signed, but overall, risk appetite is picking up. Meanwhile, Treasury yields touched the highest since August. Elsewhere, West Texas crude rose, gold slumped, and the pound weakened after the Bank of England kept rates on hold — but two policy makers unexpectedly voted for an interest-rate cut.
