    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.

    European shares fell with U.S. futures after President Donald Trump’s latest threat to target Chinese imports. Commodities fell and Treasuries climbed.

    Carmakers and miners were the biggest losers in the Stocks Europe 600 Index after Trump ordered his administration to consider tariffs on an additional $100 billion worth of Chinese imports. The offshore yuan slid amid a holiday on the mainland as China responded saying it would counter U.S. protectionism “to the end, and at any cost.” Futures on the S&P 500 declined following three days of gains for the index. Gold and the Japanese yen handed back earlier gains, while the dollar headed for a second weekly advance.

    Stocks in Europe climbed and U.S. equity-index futures pointed to a higher open as investors weighed the likelihood that the world’s two largest economies will resolve their trade dispute. Treasuries fell and the dollar steadied.

    Banks and builders were among the biggest gainers as European stocks followed their Asian counterparts higher. Commodities rebounded after their worst weekly drop since mid-March, with oil and industrial metals rallying. The yuan reversed gains as the country’s leaders were said to evaluate the impact of a gradual currency depreciation. Havens showed little reaction to a missile attack on a Syrian airbase that Russia and Syria reportedly blamed on Israel.

    Stocks in Europe drifted higher, U.S. futures advanced, and equities across Asia gained as dealmaking activity brought some excitement to the start of a busy week. The dollar climbed while the pound faced pressure as Prime Minister Theresa May lost a key ally.

    Media and real estate companies led advances in Europe as most national gauges rose, while raw material providers were among the biggest losers as commodities fell. Shares in the FTSE 100 Index climbed to the highest in almost three months, with retailer J Sainsbury Plc jumping the most on record as it plans to buy Walmart Inc.’s U.K. arm, Asda. The pound dropped after Amber Rudd quit as U.K. home secretary, and Housing Secretary Sajid Javid was named her replacement.

    stocks in Europe gained despite a decline in Asia as investors assessed trade talks between the U.S. and China. The dollar edged higher ahead of the monthly U.S. jobs report, which is expected to show a bounce-back in hiring following March’s weak numbers.

    Basic materials and technology companies led the advance in the Stoxx Europe 600 index as the euro slipped, but financials fell after disappointing earnings reports from BNP Paribas SA, Societe Generale SA and HSBC Holdings Plc. U.S. equity-index futures edged lower after stocks from Sydney to Hong Kong retreated earlier. U.S. Treasury yields were steady.

    European stocks drifted lower on Tuesday despite broad advances in Asia, while crude fell as investors braced themselves for President Donald Trump’s decision on the Iran nuclear deal. The dollar reversed a drop to strengthen and Treasuries steadied.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index declined after two days of gains, dragged lower by oil and gas companies and miners. Italian stocks were the worst performers in the region as the country looked set for fresh elections. The FTSE 100 Index climbed as it reopened following a long weekend, and after Shire Plc reached an agreement to be bought by rival Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. West Texas crude traded below $70 a barrel, paring a rally that had brought it to the highest since 2014

    European stocks struggled for traction even as U.S. equity futures rose and Asian peers jumped after easing inflation in the world’s biggest economy removed some pressure from the Fed to step up the pace of monetary tightening. The dollar slipped after dropping the most since March on Thursday.


    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index fluctuated, but still headed for its seventh week of increases, the longest streak in more than three years. Declines in the healthcare sector -- weighed on by a string of negative drug-trial results and some stocks trading ex-dividend -- offset gains for real estate and basic resources. U.S. 10-year Treasury yields held below 3 percent. Oil was steady around a three-year high, heading for a second week of gains after the U.S. pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal.

    Concerns surrounding global trade hung over markets on Thursday, with European stocks edging upward, U.S. futures drifting and Asian shares declining. The yield on 10-year Treasuries stabilized around 3 percent, while the euro gained.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index managed to claw back only a little ground following Wednesday’s selloff, as carmakers took a hit after President Donald Trump ordered a probe into automobile imports to the world’s biggest economy. Alongside continuing angst in Turkey and uncertainty over Italy’s government, the news is sapping momentum following gains for major American equity benchmarks. The lira resumed its slump as traders weigh whether an emergency rate hike was enough to stem losses. Safe-haven assets including gold and Japan’s yen climbed. Oil slipped.

    It’s been a torrid week across markets so far, with investors forced to navigate escalating geopolitical and trade risks, from Trump’s decision to back away from an agreement with China to North Korea warning of a “nuclear-to-nuclear showdown.” Questions are swirling around the Italian populist government’s economic policies, while Brexit negotiations loom large over British assets.

    Politics dominated markets on Monday, with risk appetite withering in Europe as Italy lurched toward fresh elections. The region’s shares and currency reversed early gains, while U.S. equity futures pared a jump even as the America-North Korea summit appeared to be back on track.

    Most national gauges in Europe turned lower led by Italy’s benchmark, which plunged as populist leaders pulled the plug on their attempt to form a government and the country headed for new elections as early as the fall. The nation’s bonds also tumbled. S&P 500 futures, which advanced earlier alongside South Korean stocks, were little changed in muted trading -- it’s a holiday in both the U.S. and U.K. Oil losses deepened after Saudi Arabia and Russia said they are discussing reviving output.

    European stocks edged higher following an Asian equity bounce as investors sought to rebuild their confidence amid a muddled political outlook in Southern Europe and an uncertain global trade picture. The dollar fell while the euro climbed, and Italian bond yields declined.

    With Italy’s populists battling to revive plans for a coalition government the Stoxx Europe 600 Index rose, even as Spain’s prime minister teetered on the brink and the region braced for potential U.S. tariffs. In Asia, Hong Kong and Chinese stocks outperformed after China’s official factory gauge underscored robust growth despite ongoing trade tensions. S&P 500 futures nudged higher while the yield on 10-year Treasuries rose.

    Amid political and trade turbulence, the next focus for traders may well be the U.S. jobs report on Friday, the last one before the Federal Reserve meets next month, when it’s expected to lift interest rates for the seventh time since the end of 2015. Morgan Stanley Chief Executive Officer James Gorman said the Fed is unlikely to be dissuaded from pursuing its path of monetary tightening as a result of recent volatility in financial markets.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 gauge headed for the biggest gain in a month, led by banks and basic-resources stocks, while S&P equity-index futures pointed to a higher U.S. open. Italy’s benchmark index rallied the most since early February as populist parties surged to power, bringing to an end a three-month political deadlock though opening the way to a period of friction with Europe.

    The risk-on mood prevailed even as U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration pushed ahead with tariffs on imports from its key trading partners. German bunds led a drop in most core European bonds, though Italy’s gained along with those of peripheral European nations. Spanish assets rallied after Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy was ousted by opposition parties, opening the way for Socialist leader Pedro Sanchez to take over. The euro edged higher.
