Hong Kong: HANG SENG INDEX (.HSI) stocks have reached seven-month highs
Global markets and economies are watching in anticipation as two of the world’s largest economies engage in hard negotiations to finally settle their long-running trade disputes. With the recent turn of events pointing to a possible positive outcome in the US-China trade talks, global markets have reacted accordingly. Massive spikes and movements are seen with every announcement from both sides. As the latest round of talks kicks off in the United States, sentiments have gradually improved, which has resulted in boosted global market prices.
The recent increase in prices, on the other hand, was aided by optimism towards a possible resolution of the lengthy US-China trade talks and a globally tighter supply. Economists have remained positive that an amicable outcome of the trade talks would result in increased energy demand from China this year.
With positive comments being announced from both sides, global markets have rallied in response. Asian stock has reached seven-month highs, while European stocks have managed to remain in acceptable levels despite weakening manufacturing data and the ongoing fears of a possible no-deal Brexit. The DAX surged by around 1.2 percent, while the euro was pushed up to US$1.1250.
