    EURO

    The euro advanced against the dollar, reversing its decline, after a report showed German investor confidence increased more than economists predicted this month to the strongest in 2 1/2 years.

    Europe’s common currency advanced 0.2 percent to $1.3339 at 10:06 a.m. London time, after earlier falling by 0.4 percent.

    The ZEW Center for European Economic Research in Mannheim said its index of investor and analyst expectations, which aims to predict economic developments six months in advance, climbed to 31.5 from 6.9 in December. That’s the highest since May 2010. Economists forecast a gain to 12, according to the median of 39 estimates in a Bloomberg News survey.

    The euro headed for its longest losing streak in almost a year as a deadline on Catalonia’s independence looms. Stocks in Europe advanced, while the dollar continued to strengthen helped by speculation that the next Federal Reserve chair will be more hawkish.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index rose led by technology shares, following mixed trading in Asia earlier. Spanish stocks fell. The euro weakened for a fifth day on speculation the European Central Bank will remain accommodative even as it tapers asset purchases. The greenback advanced as volatility in major currencies fell to a three-month low, while Treasury yields rose. The pound extended a decline amid more headwinds for Brexit negotiations. Oil continued to gain as signs of declining U.S. stockpiles pointed to healthy demand.

    European stocks fell and the euro reversed a gain as the Catalan crisis intensified and earnings season continued. Oil retreated for the first time in five days.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index declined following a mixed session for Asian equities as companies including Unilever and SAP SE reported underwhelming sales growth. China reported its economy expanded 6.8 percent last quarter, matching estimates, with retail sales and industrial output accelerating in September. The dollar marked time after small gains earlier this week, and Treasury yields declined.

    Spain’s government said it will proceed with suspending Catalan autonomy, after Catalan President Carles Puigdemont said the regional parliament may declare independence unless Madrid agrees to talks. The effects of the crisis on the economy and markets are becoming more evident. Spanish stocks have underperformed their European peers this month, Catalonia-based companies have threatened to leave the region and Spain has lowered its economic growth forecasts.

    European shares treaded water, while the dollar and euro held steady as investors awaited a policy meeting from the European Central Bank later in which it is expected to announce a reduction in monetary stimulus.

    Gains in miners and household goods stocks were offset by losses in bank shares after earnings reports from Deutsche Bank AG and Barclays Plc. Spanish shares steadied ahead of an address to the regional parliament by Catalonia’s President Carles Puigdemont on Thursday afternoon. European bonds were little changed, and U.S. Treasuries were flat after yields climbed to a seven-month high on Wednesday in anticipation of the announcement of a new chair for the Federal Reserve. South Africa’s rand extended its decline amid expectations of a downgrade after the country’s finance minister on Wednesday signaled more borrowing.

    European shares advanced for the first time in eight sessions, following their Asian counterparts higher as the global risk-off mood eased. Oil steadied with commodities following the biggest five-day selloff since early October.

    Financial services firms and builders were among the biggest gainers in the broad advance of the Stoxx Europe 600 Index, while in Japan the Topix index ended its longest losing streak in a year. The pound fluctuated before edging lower as Brexit rhetoric rumbled on, and data showed auto demand in Britain fell a seventh consecutive month in October. Commodities stabilized as China’s central bank boosted the supply of cash in the system by the most since January. Bonds were a mixed bag across Europe and Asia even as the yield on 10-year Treasuries climbed.

    The euro reversed early losses as investors judged the failure of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition talks unlikely to harm the outlook for the region’s economy. German stocks remained lower with European peers, however. The dollar was little changed and Treasuries nudged higher.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 slipped as Germany’s DAX touched a seven-week low and the common currency edged higher. Earlier, Chinese equities reversed losses as markets took a closer look at plans to curb shadow banking. In the U.S., the gap between two- and 10-year Treasury yields again hit the tightest level in a decade, adding to concern about the pace of future economic growth. Sterling strengthened after reports the U.K. may improve its financial offer to the European Union ahead of a crucial meeting of the bloc’s leaders in December.

    European stocks struggled for traction and bonds across the region followed Treasuries higher after the European Central Bank was said to be likely to make only small adjustments to its guidance on monetary policy next year.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index was little changed, with construction and retail stocks leading the decline. German shares slipped as the country’s political stalemate continued. Earlier, stocks in Asia recovered some of their recent losses, with Chinese equities rallying as investors reassessed a crackdown on shadow banking that had shaken confidence. The euro steadied after dropping the most in three weeks on Monday, and the dollar nudged lower.

    Stocks in Europe struggled for traction, while the dollar halted three days of losses as Treasury yields rose in sluggish post-Thanksgiving trading.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index nudged lower. Food companies advanced as China took steps to slash import tariffs on consumer goods, while retailers drifted on Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year. The euro gained as Germany moved closer to ending a political impasse. Earlier, a sudden selloff that sent Chinese equities plunging on Thursday fizzled. Iron ore climbed to a two-month high, while industrial metals headed for the best weekly gain in six. West Texas oil extended a rally after an outage on the Keystone pipeline in the U.S.

    European stocks followed their Asian counterparts higher, after another record close in the U.S. on Friday. The dollar drifted and Treasuries steadied as investor focus switches to this week’s central bank meetings.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 edged up, with banks leading the advance as a drop in telecom and travel shares limited gains. In Asia, the Nikkei 225 reclaimed a 26-year high as stocks in Tokyo closed firmer although volumes were subdued. Equities also gained in Hong Kong and China. Most European bonds rose and the euro nudged higher. Sterling slipped as some of the promises made to clinch a breakthrough Brexit deal last week started to fray

    European stocks extended yesterday’s rally as the prospects for tax cuts in the world’s largest economy continued to buoy general market sentiment. The euro also advanced as the dollar once again trimmed recent gains and Treasuries nudged higher.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 was led higher by travel and telecoms shares. The region’s core bonds fell. It was a mixed picture for equities in Asia earlier, with benchmarks in Japan and South Korea falling as stocks in Sydney, Hong Kong and China climbed. Emerging-market equities extended Monday’s increase. Sterling was a little stronger as Brexit efforts rumbled on. South Africa’s rand pared gains after reaching its strongest since March as Cyril Ramaphosa won the ruling African National Congress party’s leadership contest.

    Futures pointed to opening losses for European stocks in the wake of Catalonian separatists’ success in a regional election in Spain, deepening that country’s political crisis. The euro dropped, but was off its lows against the dollar as trading in Europe began.

    Contracts on Spain’s Ibex 35 index were down almost 2 percent, pulling regional gauges lower with it. Equities in Asia closed out the week largely in the green, with Japan’s Topix Index reaching its highest level since 1991. Benchmark government bonds including German bunds and 10-year Treasuries are headed for the biggest weekly loss since September as investors contemplate prospects for continued growth and reduced central bank stimulus.

    Catalan separatist parties triumphed in regional elections, outperforming some polls, extending Spain’s political trauma. Bitcoin fell as much as 21 percent Friday extending its loss from its high this month to more than 35 percent.
