Global Market Report


China’s recent winning streak came to an end today with a very modest fall in the Shanghai Composite Index. But Hong Kong’s Hang Seng managed to make gains, rising by around 1% to 28,920 points. In the context of the index’s recent high above 33,000 points, it still has some way to go before regaining these levels. Japan’s Nikkei and Topix indices were marginally higher on Tuesday’s close.


The trade relationship between the EU and the United Status has come back into focus this week as EC President Jean-Claude Juncker meets President Trump. The meeting takes the focus temporarily off the China-US spat and also has implications for the UK’s post-Brexit trade deals – International Trade Secretary Liam Fox is currently in the US scoping out the prospect of UK deals.

European bourses were mixed, with France’s CAC 40 and Italy’s FTSE MIB inching head, while Germany’s Dax and Spain’s Ibex lost some ground after yesterday’s move higher.
