Global Stock Market Drivers

The new-year rally in global equities stalled on Thursday as investors paused to draw breath following the recent rebound and as they awaited concrete details on US-China trade negotiations.

Treasuries led a broad advance in bonds as oil fell.

Global stocks have rallied since the start of the year amid optimism tensions are thawing between the US and China on trade and as commentary from the Federal Reserve showed policy makers have shifted to a more cautious approach to further interest-rate increases.

Still, concern surrounding the partial government shutdown in America continues to weigh on sentiment ahead of earnings season.

And China inflation data on Thursday showcased slowing growth.

Here are some events investors may focus on this week:

  • Fed Chairman Powell will speak to the Economic Club of Washington D.C.
  • Britain's Parliament will resume a debate on the Brexit withdrawal bill.

Oil Prices Slide

Oil prices fell by about 1% on Thursday on swelling US supply and amid a cautious reaction to trade talks between the United States and China, the world's two largest oil consumers, that finished without concrete details to ending their dispute.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil futures were at US$51.8 per barrel, down 1.1% from their last settlement.

International Brent crude futures were down 0.9%, at US$60.9 per barrel.

Both oil benchmarks rose by around 5% the previous day as financial markets around the world surged on the hopes that Washington and Beijing may soon be able to end their trade dispute, soothing fears of an all-out trade war between the two biggest economies and its possible impact on global growth.

By Thursday, however, the positive feelings ebbed because of a lack of a details on the talks despite a warm statement from China on the outcome, and financial markets took a breather from the rally.
