Hong Kong will end 2019 with multiple protests planned for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day aimed at disrupting festivities and shopping in the Asian financial hub, which has seen a rise in clashes between police and protesters since Christmas.

Events dubbed “Suck the Eve” and “Shop with you” are scheduled for New Year’s Eve on Tuesday around the city, including in the party district of Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong’s picturesque Victoria Harbour, and popular shopping malls, according to notices circulated on social media.

A New Year’s Day march on Jan. 1, has been given police permission and will start from a large park in bustling Causeway Bay and end in the central business district, say its organizers, the Civil Human Rights Front.

The Front previously organised the peaceful million-plus marches in June and held the latest mass march earlier in December, when they said around 800,000 people attended.

“On New Year’s Day, we need to show our solidarity… to resist the government. We hope Hong Kong people will come onto the streets for Hong Kong’s future,” said Jimmy Sham, a leader of the group.

The latest planned protests come after a pick up in clashes since Christmas Eve when riot police fired rounds of tear gas at thousands of protesters, many wearing masks and reindeer antlers, after scuffles in shopping malls and in a prime tourist district.

While the protests – now in their seventh month – have lessened in intensity and size in recent weeks, their frequency has held up, with marches or rallies occurring almost daily in the former British colony.

A rally is planned in the central business district on Monday night, where protesters will gather to remember those who have died or have been injured during the protests.

Giuliani associate Parnas unable to pay both lawyers, Christmas Eve filing shows

Lev Parnas and wife Svetlana Parnas arrive at federal court on December 2, 2019 in New York City.

A lawyer for Lev Parnas, an associate of U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani who has been charged with campaign finance violations, has requested to be withdrawn as counsel because of Parnas’ inability to pay both his lawyers, according to a filing made on Christmas Eve.

“Since I entered my appearance, Mr. Parnas’ apparent ability to fund his defense has diminished,” attorney Edward MacMahon Jr said in a filing with the federal court in Manhattan.

“It thus would constitute a significant hardship for Mr. Parnas to continue being represented by two attorneys in this matter,” MacMahon said, adding that Parnas had agreed to his request to withdraw.

New York-based criminal defense attorney Joseph Bondy, Parnas’ other lawyer, will continue to represent him, according to the filing.

Parnas, a Ukraine-born U.S. citizen, has been charged alongside another Florida businessman, Belarus-born Igor Fruman, with illegally funneling money to a pro-Trump election committee and other politicians. Both men have pleaded not guilty.

Giuliani has said that Parnas and Fruman assisted him in investigating Trump’s Democratic political rival Joe Biden and Biden’s Hunter, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.

The decision for MacMahon’s withdrawal was made in the best interests of both Parnas and MacMahon, Bondy said in a tweet.

“The legal strategy has not changed, and Mr. Parnas remains firmly committed to providing his evidence and testimony to Congress,” Bondy said.

A lot has changed since the market panic last Christmas Eve with the S&P 500 up nearly 40% since

It’s shaping up to be a much more merry Christmas for Wall Street this year.

The stock market saw a dramatic sell-off last Christmas Eve, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling 653 points. The S&P 500 briefly entered into a bear market — typically defined as a drop of more than 20% since recent highs — during the trading day on an intraday basis. Both indexes and the Nasdaq finished down more than 2% for the day.

The Dow and S&P 500 last year posted their worst December since 1931 and their biggest monthly loss since 2009. The turmoil was punctuated by the Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates that month and President Donald Trump’s aggressive stance toward China in trade negotiations.

The markets snapped back quickly, however, and then kept climbing. The S&P 500 is now up 37% from the bottom of the sell-off.

All 11 main sectors of the S&P 500 are up at least 10% since their closing level last Christmas Eve. Information Technology leads the way, up nearly 58%.

Oil jumps more than 4% on eve of OPEC meeting after larger-than-expected drop in US inventories

Data from the American Petroleum Institute released Wednesday showed a drop of 3.7 million barrels, compared to estimates of a 1.7 million barrel decrease.

U.S. inventories decreased by 4.9 million barrels for the week ending Nov. 29, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said on Wednesday. That was more than three times the 1.4 million decrease that analysts polled by FactSet had been expecting.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures gained $2.33, or 4.2%, settling at $58.43 a barrel. It was WTI’s third straight day of gains, and its best day since September. Brent crude futures gained $2.31, or 3.8%, to reach $63.14.

Oil gained more than 4% on Wednesday, as a larger-than-expected drop in U.S. inventories and hopes of deeper production cuts from OPEC lifted prices.

Oil also got a boost from talk of deeper production cuts.

OPEC’s biannual meeting kicks off Thursday in Vienna, where the 14-member group will discuss the next phase of their oil production policy. On Friday, OPEC and its allies — known as OPEC+ and which includes Russia — will meet.

OPEC+ has cut output by 1.2 million barrels per day since the beginning of the year. The current deal runs through March of 2020.

Ahead of Thursday’s meeting, Iraqi oil minister Thamer Ghadhban suggested that the members might be leaning towards steeper cuts, which would see production reduced by an additional 400,000 barrels per day.

But Rebecca Babin, a senior energy trader at CIBC Private Wealth Management, was quick to note that Wednesday’s surge brings oil back to where it traded last week, before Friday’s sell-off on comments from Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak.

“This move essentially is re-calibrating crude prices to reflect lower odds that the deal is not extended and higher odds of deeper cuts,” she said to CNBC.

While she attributed Wednesday’s action to an increased probability of deeper cuts, she noted that it’s not yet a given. “Iraq’s credibility regarding additional output cuts could be questioned, as they have yet to comply with the original cuts imposed as part of the OPEC+ agreement,” she said.

Earlier in Wednesday’s trading session oil had pared some of its gains following a Dow Jones report that Saudi Arabia might boost production if other OPEC members do not comply with the current production cut stipulations. This followed a Reuters report on Monday that Saudi Arabia could be in favor of deeper cuts in order to give Aramco a boost as it hits the public market.

– CNBC’s Sam Meredith contributed reporting.

Hundreds chant anti-India slogans in seething Kashmir on eve of Muslim holy festival

Pakistani Christian shout slogans in support of Kashmiris at a rally in the connection of the country Independence Day in Quetta on August 11, 2019, after the Indian government stripped Jammu and Kashmir of its autonomy.

Hundreds of people protested in Kashmir’s main city of Srinagar on Sunday against India’s decision to curb its autonomy, despite new restrictions on travel and a seventh straight day of communications blackout.

Restrictions that had been temporarily eased on Friday and Saturday — allowing some bakeries, pharmacies and fruit shops to open ahead of the Muslim holy festival of Eid al-Adha — were reinstated in major parts of the city on Sunday afternoon.

Police vans drove around some areas ordering people to shut shop and go home, and most streets were silent by evening, as thousands of troops kept vigil, witnesses said.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government locked down the Muslim-majority region last Sunday, cutting off communications, detaining more than 300 political leaders and activists, and putting a “virtual curfew” into force with numerous roadblocks stopping movement.

Seeking to tighten its grip on the region also claimed by neighboring Pakistan, India announced last Monday that it was scrapping Jammu and Kashmir’s right to frame its own laws and allowed non-residents to buy property there.

Angry Kashmiris gathered at a mosque in Srinagar’s Soura neighborhood after afternoon prayers on Sunday and began shouting anti-India slogans, according to two Reuters witnesses.

Protesters carried a large banner carrying the words “Save Article 35A,” referring to the constitutional provision that India revoked last week. A swarm of women and girls in colourful headscarves followed the marching men.

“What do we want? Freedom! When do we want it? Now!” the crowd shouted, marching around the neighborhood.

Some of them held up paper banners, including one that read: “Modi, Kashmir is not your father’s property.”

India’s Home Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The demonstration in Soura followed a much larger protest in the same area on Friday, when pro-independence youths marched before being repelled by tear gas and pellets.

Leaders in Kashmir had warned of a backlash against the stripping of autonomy in a territory where militants have been fighting Indian rule for nearly 30 years, resulting in the deaths of more than 50,000 people.
