    American Dollar

    The dollar fell to the lowest versus the euro since November 2011 as a strengthening U.S. jobs market and expectations the Federal Reserve will sustain stimulus to ensure the recovery boosted investors’ risk appetite.

    The shared currency rose against most major peers as separate data showed European manufacturing at its highest level in almost a year. The yen sank to a 2 1/2-year low amid bets Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will pick a new central-bank governor who will boost stimulus.

    U.S. equity futures advanced along with the currencies of Canada and Mexico as negotiators agreed to preserve a three-way trade bloc. There was little follow-through to other markets, with Asian trading thinned by holidays, and the yen weakening.

    On the Stoxx Europe 600 index, declines in travel shares largely offset gains in technology and chemicals companies. Italy’s government bonds extended their slide from last week as uncertainty persisted over a budget accord. In Japan, the blue-chip Nikkei 225 Stock Average closed at its highest level in almost 27 years. Contracts on the S&P 500 indicated the index will add to its advance after the best quarter since 2013. Oil gained on concern over a slowdown in U.S. drilling. Treasury 10-year yields ticked higher, to 3.07 percent.

    U.S. equity futures advanced alongside European stocks after Chinese officials pledged to support the world’s second-biggest economy, helping to kick start a rally in Asia. The dollar and Treasuries were steady, while Italian bonds climbed.


    Insurance and mining shares led gainers on the Stoxx Europe 600 Index as both the regional benchmark and S&P 500 futures contracts headed for the first increase in four sessions. In China, the Shanghai Composite Index surged more than 4 percent, the biggest increase since March 2016, in the wake of verbal interventions from authorities at the end of last week and plans to cut personal income taxes. Chinese President Xi Jinping vowed “unwavering” support for the country’s private sector.


    Italy’s sovereign bonds sustained their advance after the nation’s populist government promised it won’t let the budget deficit widen further than currently planned. The pound retreated as the U.K. blurred more red lines in its Brexit negotiations, heightening the danger to Prime Minister Theresa May.

    U.S. equity futures jumped alongside European stocks as investors rediscovered some confidence at the tail end of a brutal month. The euro was whipsawed by headlines about German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s future.


    Contracts for the S&P 500, Dow Jones and Nasdaq indexes all rallied as the European morning wore on, with the tech gauge setting the pace amid IBM’s $33 billion purchase of Red Hat Inc. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index rose after HSBC Holdings Plc earnings beat expectations, and extended gains as automakers surged on news China’s top economic planning body is proposing to cut the tax levied on car purchases by half. Earlier in Asia the mood had been more cautious and shares were mixed, falling in Tokyo, China and South Korea and rising in Hong Kong, Australia and India.

    U.S. Treasury yields declined and the dollar retreated against most major peers as investors mulled the fallout from American midterm elections. European stocks with U.S. futures climbed and Asian shares were mixed.

    With Democrats winning the House of Representatives majority and Republicans clinching control of the Senate, President Donald Trump’s party loses full control of Congress. The results dim chances for any major fiscal initiative from the administration that might have triggered yield gains and hence a stronger greenback.


    The outcome largely matched polling going into the vote, and it’s likely investors will now refocus their attention. The biggest macro theme remains the trade war after recent warnings from major names including the IMF’s Christine Lagarde and Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson. Elsewhere the Italian government is holding a confidence vote on Wednesday, the Federal Reserve is set to decide interest rates on Thursday, and Theresa May is pushing on with efforts to agree a Brexit deal.

    European stocks slid, following a retreat in Asia amid growing concerns about a slowdown in China and policy makers’ steps to address it. The dollar advanced as the Federal Reserve stayed on track for a December rate hike.

    Mining and energy shares led a drop in Europe’s main equity gauge after crude oil entered a bear market. Futures contracts pointed to second day of declines for U.S. stocks. Equities in Hong Kong and China led losses in the Asia, with financial shares doing particularly poorly following news that Beijing plans to set quotas for banks to pump credit into private companies. Treasury yields edged lower after three days of gains.

    Asian stocks traded lower Tuesday following a tech-led slump on Wall Street overnight though the worst of the losses were pared on hopes for progress in the U.S.-China trade dispute. Treasury yields dropped and the dollar slipped from an 18-month high.

    Key indexes slid from Tokyo and Seoul to Sydney, with Apple Inc. suppliers under pressure after the iPhone maker fell 5 percent on signs of a deteriorating sales outlook. Stocks came off their lows on a report that China’s Vice Premier Liu He will visit the U.S. to pave the way for a meeting between the leaders of the two biggest economies later this month, which also supported some currencies.

    Hopes of a resumption in trade talks helped Chinese shares swing from declines of more than one percent to gains of a similar magnitude with small-caps boosted by government pledges to support the private sector. Hong Kong stocks erased a slide. S&P 500 Index futures pushed higher and U.K. futures tipped modest gains at the open. Earlier, the Nasdaq 100 Index dropped for a third day and the Russell 2000 small-cap benchmark erased its gains for the year. Oil fell for a record 12th straight day Tuesday.

    Stocks in Asia fell after another tumble on Wall Street, where concerns have spread to the corporate-bond market. Investors are also contending with no obvious havens, with Treasuries little changed so far this week and gold weaker.


    Equity benchmarks retreated across the region though an increase in U.S. futures kept declines relatively contained. U.K. equity-index futures were higher. Oil tumbling toward $53 a barrel weighed on energy companies, while a plunge in Apple Inc.’s stock hit suppliers in Asia. All major U.S. benchmarks fell more than 1.5 percent Tuesday. The S&P 500 Index briefly slid 10 percent below its September record close before clawing back just above the threshold. Two-year Treasury yields are up slightly this week, suggesting no sea-change in views on the Federal Reserve’s path of tightening.
