(Bloomberg) -- U.S. futures rose and global stocks hit all-time highs on Friday as record growth figures from China added fuel to bets on the economic recovery. The dollar slipped.Contracts on the S&P 500 and the small-cap Russell 2000 Index climbed, while Chinese shares outperformed in Asia after a report showed the nation’s economy soared in the first quarter. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index was poised for a seventh week of advances, its longest streak since May 2018, as investors continued to boost cyclicals such as carmakers and banks, while defensive sectors lagged.The data from Beijing added to Thursday’s string of positive economic figures out of the U.S., pushing the MSCI All-Country World Index to a fresh record. Treasuries extended Thursday’s gain, with traders suggesting foreign buying and geopolitical risks may have contributed to the advance. Along with healthy corporate earnings, China’s first-quarter gross domestic product numbers are giving fresh impetus to the reflation trade. In the U.S., Thursday’s retail sales and weekly jobless claims data signaled an accelerating recovery in the world’s biggest economy. Investors will look for further confirmation as the reporting season picks up pace next week, with around 80 S&P 500 members and more than 50 Stoxx 600 firms announcing.“As the economic reopening accelerates in the coming months, we believe the bull market remains on a solid footing,” said Mark Haefele, chief investment officer at UBS Global Wealth Management. “We maintain a cyclical bias and prefer U.S. consumer discretionary, energy, financials and industrials.”Elsewhere, copper remained on course for the best week in about two months and oil was poised for its biggest weekly advance in five.

(Bloomberg) -- China’s financial regulator said operations at China Huarong Asset Management Co. are normal and the company has ample liquidity, marking the first official comments aimed at easing investor concerns over the financial health of the nation’s largest bad-debt manager.The state-owned company is actively cooperating with its auditor and will complete its annual report as soon as possible, the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission said in a statement. Huarong’s dollar bonds climbed, extending their rally from record lows on Thursday. A dearth of communication from Huarong and regulators on the company’s plight has unnerved investors who are seeking more details on its finances, its overhaul plans and its level of support from Beijing.Huarong, which owes $42 billion to local and offshore bondholders, jolted Asian credit markets after failing to meet a March deadline for releasing its 2020 earnings. The company was already under a shadow after its former chairman, Lai Xiaomin, was executed earlier this year after being found guilty of bribery. Under his leadership, Huarong expanded into areas including securities trading and trusts in a significant shift away from the company’s original mandate of helping banks dispose of bad debt.Huarong said earlier this week it had “adequate” liquidity and has repaid all bonds that matured on time, yet the company has declined to comment on its plans for future payments. The lack of clarity has fueled investor concerns about the potential for a debt restructuring that would be China’s most consequential since the late 1990s. Huarong’s dollar bond maturing in November climbed 4.3 cents on the dollar to 82.6 cents as of 5:35 p.m. in Hong Kong. Its yield, which approached 100% on Thursday, fell to 39%.The company’s offshore bonds began rebounding on Thursday, after reports that Huarong had funds for a full repayment of a S$600 million ($450 million) offshore note due April 27. The company’s onshore securities unit has wired funds to repay a local bond maturing Sunday, people familiar with the matter said on Friday. Huarong and its subsidiaries need to repay or refinance some $7.4 billion of local and offshore bonds this year. The company counts Warburg Pincus, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Malaysia’s sovereign wealth fund among its shareholders, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The stock has dropped 67% since its 2015 listing in Hong Kong and has been halted from trading since the start of April.Hu Jianzhong, chief supervisor at Huarong, said at an event in Beijing on Friday that China will see more difficulties in bad-asset disposal market over the next three to five years as the volume rises and prices fall. Hu didn’t mention Huarong’s debt situation in the speech and declined to comment on the company’s bond repayment plan or the timing for its annual report on the sidelines of the event.The nation’s distressed loan managers are facing mounting pressure as the pandemic has made it harder to dispose of assets, according to a closely watched survey by China Orient Asset Management Co. released on Friday.Increasing credit losses at the managers themselves threaten to hurt profits and have adverse impact on their capital strength over the long term, China Orient, one the nation’s four state-owned bad-debt managers, said in the report. It also warned of growing difficulties with maturity mismatches as the companies’ liabilities are mostly short-term.Financial IndustrySeparately, China’s regulator said on Friday that the country’s banks saw their non-performing loans climb to 3.6 trillion yuan ($552 billion) as of March 31, up 118.3 billion yuan from the end of 2020. The NPL ratio eased to 1.89%, 0.02 percentage point lower than at the end of 2020.With the coronavirus largely contained and the economy rebounding, Chinese policy makers have renewed a campaign to restrain leverage and curb risks, especially in the closely managed financial and real estate sectors. Last year’s stimulus pushed debt to almost 280% of annual economic output.The central bank last month asked major lenders to curtail loan growth for the rest of this year after a surge in the first two months stoked bubble risks, people familiar with the matter have said.The economy accumulated much of its record debt pile after the global financial crisis, when it binged on credit to avoid the economic slumps ravaging the West. Efforts in 2017 to restrain debt growth, especially in the shadow-banking industry, led to higher money-market rates and a slump in government bonds.(Adds background throughout.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

The majority of people don't count folding laundry or dusting shelves to be among their favourite activities.But it seems there is no time like the present to pay more attention to household chores, as researchers have discovered that cleaning and organising may be beneficial for brain health in older adults. "Scientists already know that exercise has a positive impact on the brain, but our study is the first to show that the same may be true for household chores," said lead author Noah Koblinsky of Baycrest's Rotman Research Institute (RRI). "Understanding how different forms of physical activity contribute to brain health is crucial for developing strategies to reduce the risk of cognitive decline and dementia in older adults." For the study, the researchers looked at the links between household chores, brain volume, and cognition in a group of 66 people. Participants were asked about the time they spent on household chores, such as tidying, dusting, meal preparation and clean up, shopping, heavy housework, yard work, home repairs, and caregiving. Brain size tends to be a strong predictor of cognitive health, and accordingly, the academics found that the adults who spent more time engaging in such activities had greater brain volume, regardless of how much exercise they did. "Besides helping to guide physical activity recommendations for older adults, these findings may also motivate them to be more active, since household chores are a natural and often necessary aspect of many people's daily lives, and therefore appear more attainable," added senior author Dr. Nicole Anderson. The team also hypothesised that there could be several other explanations for the brain benefits of household physical activity, such as the impact of low-intensity aerobic exercise. Full study results have been published in the journal BMC Geriatrics.

Why does the death of a public figure affect people so deeply?The passing of Queen Elizabeth II's husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, last week has led to widespread mourning, with royal fans leaving flowers, messages and tributes to the 99-year-old in public places around the U.K. But why do some people feel such intense emotion when someone they never met has died?Professor Tony Walter, from the University of Bath, explained that the death of a famous face can trigger feelings of grief or loss previously felt for a family member or friend, or spark worries about loved ones who are still alive. He also said that certain people's deaths can trigger different emotions from the public. "When Princess Diana died, I am sure it raised all sorts of anxieties in families with children," Professor Walter told the BBC. "When the Queen Mother died it was more a reflection on the end of an era."Now, with Prince Philip, I am sure it is touching a lot of people who, like the Queen, are widowed in old age... (There can be) an almost instinctive sense of gap when someone in the public eye dies."People often identify with public figures, and Prince Philip was widely admired for his years of devoted service to Queen Elizabeth II and the commonwealth. Many modern celebrities are also very accessible via social media accounts, so people can develop a close connection to them and follow their lives intently.Dr Nilufar Ahmed, from the University of Bristol, said the loss of a public figure reminds us that "we're not going to be around forever".The social sciences lecturer also explained that it could act as a trigger for people separated because of the Covid-19 pandemic who are also missing loved ones and worrying about them. "When we see a connection, we feel safe; it reminds us who we are. Especially in lockdown, with so much uncertainty, we are looking for any point of connection that we can make," Dr Ahmed said.Carole Henderson, from Grief UK, told the BBC it is "entirely natural" for people to have "overwhelming and conflicting feelings... even if it feels unnatural" when it comes to the death of public figures.She has advised people to connect with others if they are struggling and talk to someone about their feelings.
