New Book Release from Lanark Press: ROTTEN: WHY CORPORATE MISCONDUCT CONTINUES AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT
(Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks rose and U.S. futures extended overnight gains amid optimism about progress on stimulus talks in Washington. The dollar dipped.Shares climbed in Japan, Australia and South Korea. S&P 500 contracts edged higher after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she remains hopeful of a deal before the election. The gauge bounced back from Monday’s selloff on Tuesday. Tech shares mostly shook off the U.S. Justice Department’s decision to sue Google for allegedly abusing its power. Netflix Inc. plunged in late trading after it added fewer subscribers than predicted in the third quarter and issued a forecast that missed Wall Street estimates.Elsewhere, Treasuries continued to retreat, with the 10-year yield rising toward 0.8%. Oil slipped.In the latest developments, Pelosi said Tuesday she’s hopeful for a stimulus agreement this week, which would be bigger, better and retroactive. Still, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has warned the White House against a bigger Pelosi-led deal before Nov. 3. The administration’s offer is now $1.88 trillion, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on CNBC. Pelosi has pushed for $2.2 trillion along with a number of requirements for how the money should be deployed.A rally built on stimulus hopes has investors weighing the chances of striking a deal against speculation that the looming election will prove too much of a hurdle to overcome. Yet with Federal Reserve policy makers urging for more fiscal support to complement unprecedented monetary aid, many in the market may be willing to let Pelosi’s deadline come and go.“Equity markets are under some pressure following limited advances in stimulus talks,” Sebastien Galy, a senior macro strategist at Nordea Investment Funds SA, said in a note. “The odds of a deal being low, tells us much about the battle between hope and the reality of an economy still under severe shock but recovering.”Amid a resurgence in coronavirus cases, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde said the unexpectedly early pickup in infections is a “clear risk” to the economic outlook in the region. Europe’s leaders have intensified efforts to slow the contagion, reviving lockdowns in some areas after piecemeal curbs made little impact. New cases hit daily records in Germany and the Netherlands.Here are some key events this week:Brexit trade talks are likely to continue at least into next week if the U.K. and EU fail to reach an agreement.The final presidential debate before the U.S. election, between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, will be live from Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday.Here are some of the main market moves:StocksS&P 500 futures rose 0.4% as of 9:02 a.m. in Tokyo.

"People were killed at the (Lekki) tollgate by security forces," Amnesty's Nigeria spokesman Isa Sanusi told AFP, in reference to a key protest site in the city.He said the rights group was "working on verifying how many".Witnesses told AFP that shots were fired at the crowd of over 1,000 peaceful demonstrators to disperse them several hours after the authorities declared an open-ended lockdown in Lagos in the face of spiralling protests."We were all sitting down, peacefully, and they shut down the lights and the billboards, everyone started screaming," a protester called Toye told AFP, asking that her full name not be used.

Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu ordered the round-the-clock shutdown in the sprawling economic hub on Tuesday, claiming the protests had "degenerated into a monster" as violence flared in a string of cities. "Criminals and miscreants are now hiding under the umbrella of these protests to unleash mayhem," he wrote on Twitter, insisting that only essential workers should stay out on the streets. "We will not watch and allow anarchy in our dear state."As the tone hardened from the authorities, Nigeria's police chief ordered anti-riot units deployed around the country."The force will henceforth exercise the full powers of the law to prevent any further attempt on lives and property of citizens," a statement said.'Sponsored hoodlums' Up until Tuesday some 18 people had died in the demonstrations as clashes were reported between protesters and assailants wearing civilian clothes.Rights groups and demonstrators have accused "thugs and sponsored hoodlums" of attacking the peaceful rallies and seeking to discredit the protest movement.Witnesses told AFP that a police station was set ablaze in the Orile Iganmu district of Lagos on Tuesday morning.
