Stocks Slip on Geopolitical Tensions; Gold Climbs: Markets Wrap
(Bloomberg) -- European and Asian stocks edged lower alongside U.S. equity futures on Tuesday as geopolitical tensions simmered in the build up to this week’s G-20 meeting. Investors sought safer assets, and gold and the yen rose.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index declined for a third day as most industry sectors retreated, while contracts for the three main U.S. equity gauges pointed to a drop at the New York open. The moves tracked those in Asia, where benchmarks in Tokyo, Seoul and Sydney reversed earlier gains after Iran suggested new sanctions had closed off a diplomatic solution to a dispute with Washington. Meanwhile, Bloomberg reported President Donald Trump has recently mused to confidants about withdrawing from a longstanding defense treaty with Japan that he thinks treats the U.S. unfairly.As the risk-off mood lingered, gold jumped to the highest in six years and the yen hit the strongest since January against the dollar. The yield on 10-year Treasuries once again tested 2% before erasing the drop, while that of benchmark German bunds fell to a record.With stress between the U.S. and Iran building and the White House apparently playing down hopes of a trade breakthrough when Trump and China’s Xi Jinping meet this week, investors are finding few reasons to prolong the recent central bank-fueled rally. On Tuesday, traders will keep a close eye on Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, who discusses monetary policy in a speech in New York.In Asia, benchmarks in Shanghai and Hong Kong led the regional retreat as China Merchants Bank tumbled as much as 10%. The Washington Post reported a U.S. judge has found three large Chinese banks in contempt for refusing to comply with subpoenas in an investigation into North Korean sanctions violations.Elsewhere, oil fluctuated after rallying almost 8% in three days as investors weighed the situation in the Middle East against the possibility of OPEC+ extending production cuts. Bitcoin extended its gains through $11,000.Here are some key events coming up:Fed Chairman Jerome Powell speaks at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York Tuesday.

Stocks Decline, Dollar Advances on Fed Comments: Markets Wrap
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks fell and the dollar rose as two Federal Reserve officials made comments on the path of monetary policy. Gold and two-year Treasuries erased gains.The S&P 500 declined as Chairman Jerome Powell reiterated the case for somewhat lower interest rates, but stopped short of signaling a cut was imminent. Markets have been pricing in a cut of nearly 50 basis points in July. Stocks slid earlier when St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said a cut of that magnitude seemed unwarranted.The two-year Treasury yield, the rate most susceptible to Fed policy decisions, pushed above 1.73%, while the 10-year rate fell below 2%. The dollar rose for the first time in six sessions. The Fed’s dovish turn at its June 20 meeting sparked a rally in risk assets that pushed U.S. stocks to records.West Texas oil rose as investors weighed escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran against the possibility of OPEC+ extending production cuts.With stress between the U.S. and Iran building and the White House apparently playing down hopes of a trade breakthrough when Trump and China’s Xi Jinping meet this week, investors are finding few reasons to prolong the recent central bank-fueled rally.There’s “the short-term headlines related to people watching the G-20 and the potential for any news related to the US-China negotiations. That’s one piece that in the shorter run is making the markets a little uneasy. The other one is related to the geopolitical tensions with Iran,” said Omar Aguilar, the chief investment officer for equities at Charles Schwab Investment Management. “The bigger picture still drives the markets, which is we have lower interest rates coming up and the market continues to place a big bet on a July rate cut by the Fed.”Elsewhere, Drugmaker Allergan surged after agreeing to be bought by AbbVie Inc.
