A trader works on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York.

The market started 2020 on a strong note as easing geopolitical tensions lifted stocks to all-time highs, and according to one strategist, this year’s rally is just getting started.

In Credit Suisse’s annual list of “10 surprises,” global equity strategist Andrew Garthwaite said the S&P could rise another 25%. Other predictions include oil finishing the year as one of the three best-performing sectors, as well as China’s GDP growth rate hitting a three-decade low and the technology sector underperforming.

A “surprise” on the list, which has been published for nearly 30 years and includes five positive and five negative outcomes, is defined as an event outside the firm’s core scenario, but one where the distribution skews.

Anti-abortion rights group Susan B. Anthony List to spend $52 million to help Trump win in 2020

Anti-abortion rights group Susan B. Anthony List launched on Friday a $52 million effort to support President Donald Trump’s re-election bid, a day after Planned Parenthood pledged $45 million to support candidates in favor of abortion rights in 2020.

Anti-abortion rights group Susan B. Anthony List to spend $52 million to help Trump win in 2020

President Donald Trump listens to a question during a joint news conference with Finland’s President Sauli Niinisto in East Room of the White House in Washington, October 2, 2019.

Anti-abortion rights group Susan B. Anthony List launched on Friday a $52 million effort to support President Donald Trump’s re-election bid, a day after Planned Parenthood pledged $45 million to support candidates in favor of abortion rights in 2020.

The two numbers represent the largest election spends in either group’s history.

The $52 million effort from SBA could boost Trump’s outreach to anti-abortion rights voters.

SBA List, via its super PAC Women Speak Out, will use the money to canvass what the organization has called “key battleground states,” including Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, Iowa, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin.

“The stakes of this election could not be higher,” said SBA List spokesperson Mallory Quigley in a statement to CNBC. “Democratic contenders for president are lining up to support abortion on demand, and even infanticide, and declaring war on even the most modest pro-life policies. Meanwhile, President Trump has governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.”

Multiple states in 2019 tightened the restrictions on abortion. Other states, like New York, Virginia and Maine, expanded abortion access. In January 2019, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo passed the Reproductive Health Act, a law that allows people to receive an abortion after the 24th week of pregnancy in cases where the health of the person giving birth is on the line or if the baby would not survive the birth. Previously, the New York law only allowed an abortion after 24 weeks if the person giving birth would not survive.

Trump once identified as “very pro-choice,” saying in a 1999 Meet the Press interview, “I hate the concept of abortion. I hate everything it stands for. I cringe when I listen to people debating the subject. But I still believe in choice.”

But during his 2016 campaign, the president targeted anti-abortion rights voters, appearing at rallies and major fundraisers and vowing to defund global family planning efforts at the United Nations.

“From now until Election Day, our team will go door-to-door visiting traditional Democrat voter groups who may simply be unaware of the Democrats’ support for extreme pro-abortion policies,” Quigley said. “Our focused, battle-tested voter outreach method will ensure we reach the voters who can provide President Trump and pro-life Senate candidates the winning margin on Election Day.”

Planned Parenthood’s super PAC on Thursday unveiled a $45 million plan to support candidates in favor of abortion rights at the presidential, congressional, and state levels.

Both efforts come after a volatile year for abortion-rights groups.

Republican-led states last year, emboldened by the Supreme Court’s new conservative majority and President Donald Trump’s anti-abortion policies, passed 59 abortion restrictions. Also in 2019, a wave of state-led abortion bans defined the year in reproductive rights news. Each was temporarily blocked in court, but some states will appeal to higher courts.

Read more: The battle over abortion rights: Here’s what’s at stake in 2020

Experts project 2020 could be just as volatile.

The Supreme Court in March will take up its first major abortion-related case with both of Trump’s appointees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, on the bench.

The high court will review a 2014 Louisiana law that requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where the abortions are provided. Opponents said it would effectively leave one abortion provider for a state with about 4.6 million residents.

On Jan. 2, 207 lawmakers, including two Democrats, filed an amicus brief in the case, urging the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that legalized abortion.

Europe has fallen down the US’ list of priorities, Germany’s Merkel says

Europe has fallen down the US' list of priorities, Germany's Merkel says

German Chancellor Angela Merkel (L) and US President Donald Trump speak during a bilateral meeting in Biarritz, south-west France on August 26, 2019, on the third day of the annual G7 Summit.

The United States has slowly lost interest in Europe as other countries and regions have enjoyed surging economic growth and influence, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the Financial Times.

The German leader, in power for 15 years, noted a “shift” in how the United States looks at the world over the last few years.

“President (Barack) Obama already spoke about the Asian century, as seen from the U.S. perspective. This also means that Europe is no longer, so to say, at the centre of world events,” Merkel told the FT in an article published Wednesday.

In 2011, former U.S. leader Obama said the Asia-Pacific region was the “top priority” for the United States. His speech at the Australian Parliament was seen as a challenge to China. At the time, the EU was heavily focused on surviving its sovereign debt crisis.

Almost 10 years after that speech, the European Union and the United States find themselves at a crossroads. President Donald Trump has challenged the 28-member bloc and, in particular, Germany on different occasions. He has accused Berlin of currency manipulation, of not adequately contributing to the NATO budget and has also threatened to impose tariffs on German cars.

Merkel argued that Europe “needs to take on more responsibility” to address this tense relationship with the U.S. “The United States’ focus on Europe is declining — that will be the case under any president,” Merkel said.

When asked about whether she had any personal tensions with the current president, Merkel said “I think it has structural causes.”

Here are the 5 best states for retirees in 2020

Personal finance website WalletHub is out with another list of the best states in which to spend your retirement.

Factoring in affordability, quality of life and health care, Florida came in first.

Yet a recent ranking by Business Insider dubbed Mississippi the winner. Nebraska took the title in another list last year compiled by The New York Times.

If you’re confused by competing retirement listicle claims, focus on how much a potential retirement destination meets your unique requirements and sensibilities. Some lists look at taxes; others, the weather. What matters most to you?

“It’s a broad brush stroke when it comes to states,” Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com, has told CNBC.

And relocating to another state is simply not an option for everyone.

Before you pack up, experts advise that you ask yourself a few questions about a new place. Who, if anyone, do you know there? Are you familiar with the culture? Will you be able to find appropriate housing?

All of that considered, these lists can be a great jumping off point to start thinking about your future. Here are the states that made WalletHub’s list for 2020 of best places for retirees.

These are the 20 best jobs in America in 2020, according to a new ranking—and they're hiring

If you’re looking for a job with more pay, opportunity or benefits, then now is the perfect time to revamp your resume and apply.

According to Glassdoor economist Daniel Zhuo, there are a number of unfilled jobs after the holiday slump that recruiters are eager to fill at the top of the year. And workers seem eager to apply: There has been a 22% boost in job applications started on Glassdoor’s platform in January.

“Our advice to job seekers is to be patient but proactive,” says Zhuo. “Job seekers should ride the wave of motivation into the new year but should be aware that recruiters and hiring managers may be slower to respond in January as they return from the holidays and sort through a higher-than-usual volume of applications.”

Using data from its platform, Glassdoor created a list of the best jobs in 2020 that job seekers should keep a close eye on. These jobs are ranked based on salary, a job satisfaction score on a scale of one to five, and number of job openings on Glassdoor’s platform.

Seven of the top 10 jobs on the list are in tech, with front-end engineer coming in at the top spot.

Data scientist, which previously held the No. 1 spot for the past four years, fell to number three this year.

And Java developer came in the second spot.

All of these roles offer a salary of $80,000 or more, and they all have a satisfactory rating of 3.9 or above.

Take a look below to see what roles rounded out the top 20 spots on Glassdoor’s list of best jobs in America in 2020.

The best tech jobs for 2020, according to Glassdoor

It’s good to be a techie.

Tech jobs in fields from cloud engineering to UX design filled Glassdoor’s annual report on the 50 best jobs in America for 2020. Jobs in the sector appeared 20 times on the list, taking the top seven spots. Glassdoor is a website where workers anonymously rate and review their employers.

Considering the explosion in growth experienced by some of the largest tech companies in the world over the past 20 years, it should not be surprising that tech jobs dominate such lists. The five largest tech firms in the United States — Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Alphabet (the parent company of Google), and Facebook — have collectively put more than 1 million people to work between 2000 and 2018, according to financial filings from those companies.

However, you don’t have to work at a mega-cap tech company to land one of these gigs, Glassdoor said, as businesses across all industries take on employees with technical backgrounds to compete in an increasingly technological world.

Glassdoor analyzed user-generated data on its site to create the rankings using three variables: earning potential, overall job satisfaction and number of openings.

The role of front-end engineer claimed the top spot on this year’s list, bumping down data scientist, which was named Glassdoor’s best job every year since 2016. Glassdoor said front-end engineer managed to climb the ranks thanks to an increase in demand for such employees, with over 13,000 open roles, based on Glassdoor’s data, nearly double the number of openings for data scientists.

Product manager, which placed fourth on the list, offers employees the highest median base salary of $117,713, according to Glassdoor’s data, while product designer and Salesforce developer tied with the highest job satisfaction rating score of 4.2. Software engineer, which placed seventh overall, is the job most in demand, with 50,438 job openings.

Glassdoor ranks job satisfaction on a 1-5 scale.

Here is Glassdoor’s ranking of the top 20 tech jobs in the U.S. for 2020 and their rankings in the overall top 50 list:

US will remove China from currency manipulator list ahead of trade deal signing

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He (2nd L) says goodbye to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin as they break from meetings at the USTR offices May 10, 2019 in Washington, DC.

The United States will remove China from a list of countries considered currency manipulators just two days before top trade negotiators for Washington and Beijing sign a key “Phase One” trade deal, a person familiar with the matter told CNBC.

The decision to strike China from the currency manipulator list comes more than five months after the Treasury Department formally made the designation. President Donald Trump and China Vice Premier Liu He are scheduled to sign a preliminary trade agreement in Washington on Wednesday.

The world’s two largest economies for nearly two years have been levying tariffs back in forth while trying to work out the terms of a permanent trade resolution. Trump, in particular, has been critical of the U.S.-China trade deficit as well as Beijing’s previous moves to devalue its currency, which tends to boost its exports.

Treasury’s move in August to call China a manipulator raised tensions in the trade war and was the first such formal designation since President Bill Clinton’s administration. It came as the Chinese yuan weakened beyond 7 yuan to the dollar for the first time since 2008.

China’s central bank governor Yi Gang maintained at the time that Beijing doesn’t use its currency as a tool to cope with external disturbances such as trade disputes. The yuan has since returned to a pegged range considered normal — in line with China’s economic fundamentals and market demand and supply and not weak enough to anger its trading partners.

And while largely symbolic, the Treasury Department’s summertime decision to label China as a manipulator could have left Beijing open to additional scrutiny through the IMF.

The president’s decision to remove China from the list drew criticism from the Senate’s top Democrat, New York’s Chuck Schumer.

“China is a currency manipulator—that is a fact,” Schumer said in a statement. “Unfortunately, President Trump would rather cave to President Xi than stay tough on China. When it comes to the president’s stance on China, Americans are getting a lot of show and very little results.”

The White House and the Treasury Department declined to comment on this story. The S&P 500 rose to a record high following reports that the Treasury Department will no longer list China as a manipulator.

Washington’s move to striking China as a currency manipulator comes two days ahead of a hotly anticipated Phase One trade deal signing between the two nations.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in an interview with Fox News on Sunday reiterated the importance of the pending deal and said that Beijing has agreed to purchase some $200 billion in U.S. goods over the next two years.

Bloomberg News first reported on the Treasury Department’s decision to delist China as a manipulator.

These are the UK's best paid jobs in 2020, says Indeed

Chief financial officers (CFO) perform the U.K.’s best paid job on average, according to global jobs site Indeed.

CFOs are responsible for managing a company’s financial planning and reporting. In Britain they take home an average salary of £112,666 ($147,846), when calculating from ads placed on Indeed’s website.

Indeed analyzed more than 3,200 full-time job advertisements posted on its website, to calculate which roles had the highest average annual pay.

This was the first time the job site conducted the research, which excluded CEOs as few vacancies were advertised on public sites and tended to be recruited through headhunting agencies.

Other senior financial roles also made it into Indeed’s top 20 ranking, albeit much further down on the list, with vice presidents of finance commanding a salary of £86,517 and tax directors earning £85,742 annually.

Vice president of sales came in second place on the list, with an average salary of £109,278, followed by the vice president of engineering, taking home £108,623 a year.

Medical specialist roles rounded out the top five earners. Orthodontists, which fix the appearance of teeth usually with braces, earn £99,010 and dermatologists, or skincare specialists, get paid £93,282 a year on average.

It can take a decade to train as an orthodontist in the U.K., requiring five years of studying dentistry, workplace training and then a further three years’ study to become fully qualified.

Pentagon rejects Trump's pledge to strike Iranian cultural sites

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks as Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Army General Mark Milley looks on after a briefing from senior military leaders in the Cabinet Room at the White House on October 7, 2019 in Washington, DC.

The U.S. has no plans to target Iranian cultural sites in potential strikes, Pentagon chiefs told reporters, overturning threats from President Donald Trump issued after Iran vowed retaliation for the U.S. killing of its top general Qasem Soleimani.

Asked during a press gaggle if the U.S. military would follow Trump’s announced plan to target cultural sites in Iran, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley replied, “We will follow the laws of armed conflict.”

Asked if that meant “no” because targeting cultural sites constitutes a war crime under those laws, the general replied, “That’s the laws of armed conflict.”

Trump on Sunday vowed to hit 52 targets in Iran “very hard” if the country retaliates for the U.S. killing of Soleimani by drone strike in Baghdad on January 3. Soleimani was head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ external wing, the elite Quds Force — and was considered the second-most powerful leader in Iran, credited with expanding Iran’s influence through proxy networks all over the Middle East.

The laws of armed conflict represent a branch of international law that governs relationships between states and is meant to regulate armed conflict.

Trump tweeted Sunday that Iran “is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets” in response to Soleimani’s death, and said that the U.S. had “targeted 52 Iranian sites,” some of which were “at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD.”

Trump did not specify what the sites were, but said that the number chosen — 52 — was meant to represent the 52 American hostages held by the Islamic Republic for 444 days after the seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979.

Michael Knights, a Gulf and security expert at the Washington Institute, wrote on Twitter on Sunday that “there would not be ‘cultural’ targets on any U.S. target list. Such sites are on a ‘no-strike list’ and/or a ‘restricted target list’ including all UNESCO sites and many others, incl mosques, schools, etc.”

Blackstone’s Private Wealth Solutions Vice Chairman Byron Wien is expecting the S&P 500 to rise 10% in 2020, but there will be volatility in the markets.

Wien and Blackstone’s chief investment strategist Joseph Zidle joined CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Tuesday to discuss their annual “Ten Surprises” list. Watch the full video above.

Wien’s surprises list has been a must-read on Wall Street since the 50-year investing veteran began publishing it in the mid-1980s when he was chief investment strategist at Morgan Stanley.

“I think we’ll see multiple 5% drops. We’ll see volatility,” said Zidle. But ultimately the 500 stock index will top 3,500 this year, he said.

In 2020, Wien predicts that there will be no “phase two” trade deal between the U.S. and China and the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates two times.

“The economy is going to be weak and the Fed is going to step in and ease,” said Wien.
