LONDON (Reuters) - Stocks worldwide tumbled on Friday after weak economic data from China and Europe fanned concerns of a global economic slowdown and left investors fretting over the wider impact of a still-unresolved Sino-U.S. trade dispute.

The trade dispute resolution is looking a little brighter following this olive branch from Beijing - depends on the Trump man now, I guess

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s finance ministry said on Friday it will suspend additional tariffs on U.S.-made vehicles and auto parts for three months starting Jan. 1, 2019.

The government will suspend 25 percent tariffs on 144 U.S. vehicle and auto part items and 5 percent tariffs on 67 auto items between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2019, the ministry said in a statement on its website.

The Ministry of Finance also said it hopes China and the United States can speed up negotiations to remove all additional tariffs on each other’s goods.[

QUOTE
U.S. stocks plunged, capping the worst week for the S&P 500 Index since March, as the Trump administration pressed its trade war with China and the latest batch of economic data added to concern that growth has peaked. Oil rose after OPEC agreed to cut output.


The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed over 500 points Friday, bringing its decline in the abbreviated trading week to over 1,000. The S&P finished the week down 4.6 percent. The trade outlook appeared to take a negative turn after Huawei Technologies’s chief financial officer was charged with conspiracy and the U.S. alleged the company violated sanctions. The Federal Reserve’s Lael Brainard struck a hawkish tone in comments at a conference.

The S&P 500 fell 2.3 percent to 2,633.08 as of 4:06 p.m. in New York, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average slumped 2.2 percent to 24,388.95 and the Nasdaq Composite Index tumbled 3.1 percent to 6,969.25.
The Stoxx Europe 600 rose 0.6 percent, the first increase in four days.
The U.K.’s FTSE 100 rallied 1.1 percent.
Germany’s DAX Index gained less than 0.1 percent.
The MSCI Emerging Market Index fell less than 0.1 percent.
The MSCI Asia Pacific Index increased 0.1 percent.

Currencies
The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index fell 0.1 percent.
The euro gained 0.3 percent to $1.1408.
The British pound weakened 0.3 percent to $1.2742.
The Japanese yen gained less than 0.1 percent to 112.66 per dollar.

Yep - markets reacting to the news

U.S. stock futures fall, Asia follows after Canada arrests Huawei CFO

QUOTE
TOKYO (Reuters) - U.S. stock futures and Asian shares tumbled on Thursday after Canadian authorities arrested a top executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei for extradition to the United States, fanning fears of a fresh flareup in tensions between the two superpowers

The news came as Washington and Beijing begin three months of negotiations aimed at de-escalating their bruising trade war, which is adding to global investors’ worries over rising U.S. interest rates and other risks to global economic growth.

S&P500 e-mini futures ESc1 fell almost 2 percent at one point in thin Asian morning trade and were last were down 1.2 percent.

The losses in the first few minutes of trading might have been even steeper, but CME Group’s Chicago Mercantile Exchange implemented a series of 10-second trading halts that helped limit the initial drop.

Japan's Nikkei .N225 slid 1.7 percent, with semi-conductor related shares leading the losses. Huawei is one of the world's largest makers of smartphones and telecommunications network equipment.

MSCI's ex-Japan Asia-Pacific index fell 1.2 percent .MIAPJ0000PUS. Hong Kong's Hang Seng .HSI dropped 2.1 percent while Shanghai shares .SSEC dropped 0.9 percent.

another shot across the bow....

Meng is one of the vice chairs on the Chinese technology company’s board and the daughter of company founder Ren Zhengfei (.... president of Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong, and an ex-People's Liberation Army officer)

& makes Eisenhower's Military-Industrial Complex look amateurish

Local stocks are set to dive after a terrible session on Wall Street, where lack of clarity on a deal to call a temporary halt to trade tensions between the US and China and worries that the US could be heading for a recession and sent markets into a tailspin.

Major US markets fell hard on Tuesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Index fell 799 points, or 3.1 per cent, the S&P 500 sank 3.2 per cent and the Nasdaq tumbled 3.8 per cent. The VIX "fear gauge" surged 20 per cent during the session.

Australian markets have had a turbulent run this week, rallying strongly on Monday after signs on trade progress between the US and China before that optimism gave way to gloom.

"Market sentiment on the US‑China trade war swung yesterday to, not pessimism but realism," Commonwealth Bank strategist Tobin Gorey said. "More people sobered their views as the lack of concrete outcomes - as opposed to plans to be completed - emerged."

Concerns about the future strength of the US economy also appear to be filtering through to markets. Two and three year yields traded above the five year yield, while the spread between the 10 year yield and the two-year narrowed to its smallest in a decade....
....realism not pessimism; I like that (though "to sober" a view doesn't work for me)

The yield on the three-year Treasury note surpassed its five-year counterpart on Monday. When a so-called yield curve inversion happens — short-term yields trading above longer-term rates — a recession could follow, though it is often years away after the signal triggers.

==============================================

10 year yield is under 3%.

US market will be closed tonight!

G20 dinner leaves bad aftertaste on Wall St
The White House's 'cautious optimism' about a ceasefire with China has revived a battered Wall Street, but lingering doubts about a lasting solution have left investors wary of making long-term bets.
