  • World Stocks 2017: The most popular investor picks for emerging markets in 2017

    These are some clear favorites among investors for 2017. All things Russian and Indian are popular, as are Brazilian corporate bonds and Mexico’s cheap peso.

    The top calls for this year are centered on markets where the political climate is improving and assets are less vulnerable to external shocks arising from higher U.S. borrowing costs and President-elect Donald Trump’s policy announcements.

    Where to Invest $10,000 Right Now


    With a new president and a foggy outlook for his impact on the U.S. economy and others around the world, finding experienced, insightful sources of investment advice is more important then ever.

    We’ve got that covered.

    We asked five leading investors to share their best ideas on where to put $10,000 right now. Here, in the third installment of our series, we offer their strategies, plus a wealth of exchange-traded funds chosen by Bloomberg Intelligence ETF analyst Eric Balchunas to reflect the themes the investors highlight. (Some of our five panelists also run mutual funds or investment portfolios that employ their strategies and themes.) Favored tactics for the new year include shifting some money out of U.S stocks into international equities, making a contrarian bond play, prospecting for small-cap stocks in Asia, and more.

      Supply is the technical factor behind global rally in markets


      Rising political risks. A fading era of central-bank stimulus. The potential end of a multi-decade bull run in U.S. government debt.

      Markets have so far this year shrugged off a laundry list of looming headwinds, with U.S. equities scaling new heights and sales of corporate bonds reaching record levels.
      What gives?


      While major economies have shown signs of improvement in recent months, helping to rekindle investors’ animal spirits, a key and typically over-looked technical indicator has helped juice the global rally in financial assets: supply.

        Global stocks keep climbing as treasuries decline: markets wrap


        Rumors of the reflation trade’s demise seem to have been at least a little exaggerated, as investors shifted to equities from bonds.


        Global stocks continued a rally before data this week provides detail on the strength of U.S. consumer prices, and ahead of speeches from a range of Federal Reserve officials. Treasuries fell after data showed America’s biggest creditors

        ditching holdings. Iron ore surged and copper climbed, buoying commodity producers.

          Stocks, Dollar Falter as Investors Await Yellen: Markets Wrap

          A global rally that sent U.S. benchmarks surging to a fresh round of records stalled as markets turned their attention to Janet Yellen for clues on how quickly she’ll tighten monetary policy amid expected pro-growth measures by the White House. Treasuries steadied.

          The dollar deepened losses against most peers and U.S. stock futures were dragged lower by a mood of uncertainty before the Federal Reserve Chair’s semi-annual testimony before Congress later today. European stocks snapped a five-day winning streak. The pound was the only major currency to decline against the greenback after U.K. inflation remained below the Bank of England’s 2 percent target.

            Asian stocks at 1-1/2 year highs on robust Wall Street; dollar retreats

            Asian stocks edged up to fresh 19-month highs on Thursday, helped by an extended rally on Wall Street and strong U.S. data though the dollar stepped back after a recent bounce.

            MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.2 percent, rising to its highest since July 2015. It is up by a tenth so far this year partly underpinned by more optimistic earnings expectations and a gradual unwinding of bearish emerging market bets.

            Australian stocks advanced 0.4 percent in early deals with looming jobs data the key event risk on the day. A strong showing would set the market up for further gains with technical indicators helping.

              Global stocks drop as markets wary of Fed, geopolitical tensions

              Asian shares and U.S. stock futures dropped on Monday as investors weighed the near-certain prospect of an interest rate hike in the United States this month against news of slower growth in China this year.

              Risk appetite also took a hit on rising geopolitical tensions in East Asia, as North Korea fired four ballistic missiles early in the day, while a spat between China and South Korea over missile defense deepened.

              U.S. stock futures ESc1 dipped 0.4 percent, a fairly large move for Asian trade. Japan's Nikkei .N225 dropped 0.4 percent.

                Stocks, dollar under pressure after soft U.S. data


                Shares and the U.S. dollar dipped on Monday while U.S. bond yields slumped to five-month lows after soft U.S. economic data hurt investor sentiment already frayed by worries over North Korea and coming French elections.

                That dwarfed any relief for market players after the U.S. Treasury department did not name China as a currency manipulator, avoiding an all-out confrontation on currencies between the world's two largest economies.

                S&P 500 mini futures declined 0.15 percent to 2,324, edging near a six-week low of 2,317.75 touched in late March following U.S. President Donald Trump's defeat on healthcare reform.

                  Wall Street surges, Nasdaq hits record on French vote result


                  The Nasdaq hit a record high on Monday, with other indexes also rallying, as investors breathed a sigh of relief after Centrist candidate and market favorite Emmanuel Macron won the first round of the French election.

                  Polls showed pro-EU Macron is expected to beat right-wing rival Marine Le Pen in a deciding vote on May 7, quelling some fears of a breakup of the Eurozone after Britain's shock exit vote last year.

                  "The markets are in a strong rebound as the expectations of the first round of the French elections results were pleasing," Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at First Standard Financial wrote in a note.

                    Futures rise on Trump tax talk; earnings in focus

                    U.S. stock index futures rose on Tuesday, building on a day-earlier rally as investors assessed quarterly earnings, while awaiting a major tax plan from President Donald Trump.

                    * Trump promised last week to make "a big tax reform and tax reduction" announcement on Wednesday. The President has directed his aides to move quickly on a plan to cut the corporate income tax rate to 15 percent from 35 percent, a Trump administration official said on Monday.

                    * Trump also indicated his openness to delaying his push to secure funds for building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, potentially eliminating a sticking point as lawmakers worked to avoid a looming shutdown of the federal government.

                      Asia stocks ride global momentum, dollar up on June Fed rate hike bets

                      Asian stocks followed global indexes higher on Wednesday, as strong earnings and manufacturing data boosted risk appetite, while expectations that the Federal Reserve will signal a June rate increase later in the session lifted the dollar.

                      Oil prices pulled higher after a sharp fall on Tuesday on technical selling in a market already worried about oversupply and following a rise in output from several members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries.

                      MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS rose 0.1 percent early on Wednesday, within a hair of a near-two-year high hit on Tuesday.

                        S&P, Dow set for worst day in eight months on Trump turmoil


                        The S&P 500 and the Dow were headed for their worst day in more than eight months as reports of a leaked memo by former FBI chief James Comey spooked investors, raising questions about whether President Donald Trump tried to interfere with a federal investigation.

                        Trump asked Comey to end a probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's ties with Russia, according to the reports.

                        The news comes on the heels of a tumultuous week at the White House when Trump unexpectedly fired Comey and then disclosed classified information to Russia's foreign minister about a planned Islamic State operation.

                          Trump storm hits stocks again but dollar steadies

                          Swirling uncertainty over U.S. President Donald Trump's political future saw world stocks extend their steepest fall in over six months on Thursday, though there were signs of stabilization elsewhere as the dollar and gold steadied.

                          Reports that Trump had tried to intervene in an investigation into alleged Russian interference in last year's U.S. election and that his aides had numerous undisclosed contacts with Russian officials kept market tensions high.

                            Trump’s budget proposal slashes spending by $3.6 trillion over 10 years

                            President Trump on Tuesday will propose cutting federal spending by $3.6 trillion over 10 years, a historic budget contraction that would severely ratchet back spending across dozens of programs and could completely reshape government assistance to the poor.

                            The White House’s $4.094 trillion budget request for fiscal 2018 calls for cuts that hit Medicaid, food assistance and other anti-poverty programs. It would cut funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which provides benefits to the poor, by roughly 20 percent next year.

                              World stocks slip on China downgrade, ahead of Fed minutes


                              World stocks inched lower on Wednesday after China's sovereign credit rating was downgraded and as investors eyed a pause in Wall Street's four-day winning streak, the longest in over three months.

                              The dollar and U.S. bond yields were steady as investors awaited the minutes from the Federal Reserve's last policy meeting. An interest rate rise next month is now 75 percent priced in, according to futures market pricing.
