World stocks rose on Wednesday, hitting a four-month high on hopes for progress in trade talks between the United States and China, and a supportive backdrop from major central banks also helped push risk assets higher. Stocks started with a rally in Asia that pushed the MSCI world equity index to its highest since October after U.S. President Donald Trump said negotiations with China were going well and suggested he was open to extending the deadline to complete them beyond March 1. Many had feared U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports would rise to 25 percent from 10 percent if no trade deal was reached by then.

Short-dated Italian government bonds outperformed on Monday, their yields falling the most among euro zone bonds to lead a rally in the periphery, on expectations of more monetary stimulus from the European Central Bank. Italian two- and five-year government bond yields fell as much as eight basis points after comments by ECB policymakers Francois Villeroy de Galhau, Olli Rehn and Benoit Coeure raised expectations of new cheap loans for banks from the central bank. Coeure's comments on Friday saw euro zone banking shares jump more than 3 percent, the euro fall and Italy's bond yields tumble.
Oil prices edged higher on Thursday and Brent hit the highest level this year, but gains were capped after the steepest decline in U.S. retail spending since 2009 heightened investor fears of a global economic slowdown. U.S. financial markets opened lower and global stock markets erased broad gains after retail sales in the world's largest economy recorded their biggest drop in more than nine years in December. "Oil prices sold off in reaction to the very weak retail sales data in the U.S. that drove selling across-the-board," said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital Management in New York.
Airbus has blamed weak sales for its decision to scrap production of the A380 superjumbo - the world's largest airliner. Following months of speculation over the plane's future, Airbus said it had taken the decision after Emirates scaled back an order for A380s - choosing instead to focus on smaller planes. Airbus chief executive Tom Enders said: "As a result of this decision we have no substantial A380 backlog and hence no basis to sustain production, despite all our sales efforts with other airlines in recent years.
The Labor Department's report on Wednesday supported the Fed's recent description of price pressures being "muted."

The Consumer Price Index last month was held down by cheaper gasoline, which offset increases in the cost of food, rent, healthcare, recreation, apparel, motor vehicles and household furnishings. In the 12 months through January, the CPI rose 1.6 percent, the smallest gain since June 2017.

Britain's economy risks stalling or contracting as Brexit nears and a global slowdown worsens, with firms in the dominant services sector reporting job cuts for the first time in six years and falling new orders. Sterling slipped to near two-week lows against the dollar after a leading gauge of the world's fifth-biggest economy, the IHS Markit/CIPS UK Services Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), fell to 50.1 in January from 51.2 in December. Britain's economy defied forecasts from some economists that it would go into recession after the 2016 referendum vote to leave the European Union.

The Federal Reserve's policy twist on Wednesday might seem just what the White House ordered, with a hold put on what President Donald Trump termed "loco" interest rate hikes, and an openness to ending the monthly runoff of up to $50 billion from the U.S. central bank's balance sheet. It isn't the narrative of rebounding investment, higher productivity, and surging growth that administration officials offer, but one of shaky confidence, an economic recovery that may not be as sturdy as it seems, and risks that partly stem from Trump's own actions. Just as the Fed's four rate increases last year were a product of better-than-expected growth nudged higher by some of Trump's policies - a sign of economic strength even if the president called it otherwise - the policy shift this week was a sign the best days of Trumponomics may be over.
