    Here’s the Asia Stocks Verdict: Bulls Are Reluctant to Run

    Yes, Chinese and Hong Kong shares rallied after their mid-day breaks, but it took a whopping four hours for that to happen after China propped up the market earlier on Friday. The fact of the matter is, a 2 percent to 3 percent climb on Friday won’t remove China’s title as the world’s worst stock market. The bounce has certainly pulled other Asian markets up with the mainland rally (Shenzhen stocks climbed 2.6 percent) in afternoon trading, but the MSCI Asia Pacific Index was still down 0.2 percent as of 5 p.m. in Hong Kong after dropping as much as 1 percent earlier.

    Wild Ride in Treasurys as Investors React to Hawkish Fed Minutes, Dovish Draghi Comments

    Global stocks tumble on souring sentiment; oil falls

    Stocks fell sharply on Thursday while the Japanese yen rose in a move toward safety assets, with traders citing the Sino-U.S. trade war, Italy's budget concerns and a widening gap between the United States and Saudi Arabia. European stocks closed near the day's lows and Wall Street slid after the European Commission said Italy's 2019 budget draft is in "particularly serious" breach of EU budget rules, a step that prepares the ground for what would be an unprecedented rejection of a member state's fiscal plan. Italy's 5-year yield hit its highest since October 2013 and its 10-year yield brushed against a 4-1/2 year high.
