    Asian Investors “Uncomfortable” After U.S. Official Dampens Positive Sentiment Ahead of Trump-Xi Meeting

    The early sentiment in Asia indicates that sellers have gained the upper hand. It’s not a bearish tone, per se, but rather one being dictated by long liquidation by those investors who want to avoid the pain of another steep sell-off, and aggressive short-sellers betting on the worst outcome.

    “The news on the talks in Osaka is a short term positive for asset markets, but we believe any talks will change little unless either side makes some meaningful concessions, which we do not view as likely at this time,” Pang added. While there is only a 20% chance of a rate cut in June, traders want to hear the Fed is leaning to its first cut in 10 years in July. If this isn’t stated clearly then the markets could weaken.

    Ping An's OneConnect leaning towards New York over Hong Kong for IPO - sources

    Ping An Insurance's OneConnect financial technology unit is leaning toward picking New York over Hong Kong for its initial public offering (IPO) in the hope of achieving a higher valuation, three people with direct knowledge of the matter said.

The insurer is now seeking to list OneConnect in New York as early as in September, said one of the people, who were not authorised to speak to media and so declined to be identified.

    Hong Kong’s Financial Elite Grow Uneasy as China Tensions Rise

    As police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at charging protesters in the central business district on Wednesday, conversations in the skyscrapers above turned to the potential fallout from an extradition bill that critics warn will erode Hong Kong’s prized judicial independence from China. “People could feel the tear gas and pepper spray on the way home,” said the banker, who like several others quoted in this story asked not to be identified discussing a politically charged subject. For international companies that maintain regional headquarters and employ thousands of workers in Hong Kong, the question is whether rising political risks could ultimately threaten the former British colony’s appeal as a gateway to China.

    MORNING BID EUROPE-Round one: race to replace UK's May starts

    Switzerland has slightly raised its 2019 economic growth forecast to 1.2% but warned of risks to the global economy, including the trade dispute between the United States and China, uncertainty over Brexit and Italy's financial situation. The move came before the Swiss National Bank's quarterly policy meeting later today at which the central bank was expected to keep its ultra-loose monetary policy unchanged. Last week, officials of the internationally recognised Cypriot government said they had agreed a production-sharing deal with U.S.-based Noble Energy and partners over commercial exploitation of the Aphrodite field.

    Hong Kong Protests Lengthen List of Worries for Stock Traders

    A trade war between China and the U.S., a slumping yuan, spiking interbank rates and now street protests that spilled across the city’s financial district in a repeat of 2014’s Occupy movement. The last two -- rates and protests -- have combined to snuff out a nascent recovery in the benchmark Hang Seng Index after last month’s 9.4% drubbing. The gauge tumbled as much as 2% on Wednesday after the one-month interbank borrowing cost surged to a decade-high and protesters demanded the city’s government drop a planned bill that would allow extradition to mainland China.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Hong Kong leads Asian stocks lower, oil near 5-month lows

    Asian shares were led lower on Thursday as the Hong Kong market fell for second consecutive session following a day of massive street protests, while oil prices flirted with five-month lows due to higher U.S. crude inventories and a bleak demand outlook. Hopes that the United States and China will clinch a deal on the sidelines of a Group of 20 summit meeting in Osaka on June 28-29 have been fading, also hurting sentiment and driving bond yields down.
