TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Asian stocks rose on Tuesday, supported by hopes Beijing and Washington would dial back trade hostilities, though comments from the U.S. president about the yuan and Federal Reserve policy capped gains and weighed on the dollar.
Spreadbetters expected European stocks to open slightly lower, with Britain’s FTSE (FTSE) dipping 0.25 percent, Germany’s DAX (GDAXI) shedding 0.05 percent and France’s CAC (FCHI) losing 0.1 percent.
In an interview with Reuters on Monday, President Donald Trump said that China was manipulating its currency to make up for having to pay tariffs imposed by Washington on some imports from China. This kept global trade conflict concerns alive and dented some of the market optimism ahead of upcoming U.S.-China trade talks.
