Global Stock Market Key Events

Asian stocks ended mixed on Thursday after overnight slide in US and European peers. While strong regional earnings as well as higher oil and metal prices helped spur stock-specific buying, renewed geopolitical tensions and uncertainty over US political risks served to keep underlying sentiment somewhat cautious.

Among other key events looming this week:

  • The latest figures on combined sales of previously-owned US homes will be released on Thursday.
  • Investors kept a close eye on a central banking conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on Friday, where Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and European Central Bank President Mario Draghi both were to speak.

From the Commodities Space

  • Oil prices crept lower as rising US oil output dampened some of the optimism that had accompanied eight straight weeks of declines in US crude inventories.
  • US crude slipped 0.1% to US$48.37 a barrel, after rising 2.2% over the previous two sessions.
  • Gold was also steady at US$1,289.66 an ounce, retaining Wednesday's 0.4% jump.
