    Hong Kong Malls Offer Shelter From the Retail Gloom

    The city’s retail industry just had its most lucrative year since 2013, with sales climbing 8.8 percent, or $62 billion. Much of that growth was fueled by the 61.1 million tourists, mostly from mainland China, who flocked to Hong Kong to stock up on cosmetics, jewelry and other luxury goods.

    Stocks Fade Into Close Amid Weak Data, Border Spat: Markets Wrap

    U.S. stocks edged lower in listless trading as disappointing economic data and reports the president will declare a national emergency overshadowed news that another government shutdown will be averted. Signs Congress would avert another shutdown boosted sentiment midday and shares drifted until the late slide that came with news that President Donald Trump intends to sign a government funding bill and simultaneously declare a national emergency to get more money for a border wall. Bank stocks were among the hardest hit, as the 10-year Treasury yield briefly sank below 2.65 percent.

The news seemed to have a positive effect on the Australian and New Zealand Dollars, but failed to add to this week’s strength in the major Asian stock markets.

    U.S. Stocks Break Out of Malaise Amid Trade Hopes: Markets Wrap

    U.S. stocks shook off their malaise Tuesday, boosted by optimism over trade talks and a tentative deal among American lawmakers to avert a government shutdown. After four sessions of losses or whisker-thin gains, the S&P 500 Index registered its biggest one-day increase this month, breaking through its 200-day moving average. The rally was broad-based: Materials stocks led the charge, but financials and the FAANG cohort of tech stocks also advanced, and energy companies gained as oil rebounded from a two-week low after Saudi Arabia pledged to deepen production cuts.
