Mnuchin: Phone call on trade with China set for Thursday, 'complicated issues' remain

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC on Thursday that he and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will talk with Chinese counterparts later in the day but “complicated issues” remain in the trade war.

“This will be the second conversation we’ve had. There has been conversation at the staff level,” Mnuchin said in a “Squawk Box ” interview. “We’re working under the direction of President Trump and President Xi from the meeting in Osaka and we’ll see where we get.”

Mnuchin added that if the call went well, he would expect in-person meetings to take place.

China and the U.S. agreed last month at the G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan, to restart trade talks and avoid the implementation of additional tariffs. The world’s largest economies have been engaged in a trade war for more than a year, keeping a cloud of uncertainty over financial markets and the global economic outlook.

The Wall Street Journal reported that U.S.-China trade talks have been at a standstill as the Trump administration weighs China’s demands to ease restrictions on telecom giant Huawei.

Mnuchin said Huawei was not a sticking point on the negotiations, but “there are just a lot of complicated issues.”

“We were very far along [in] the deal. We were disappointed that we went backwards on certain issues,” he said. “But if we can get a good deal, this is a great opportunity for U.S. companies and for U.S. workers.”

Morgan Stanley on trade truce: No real progress, downside risks to economy and market remain

Tensions between the U.S. and China are not escalating but there is still “no clear path” towards a deal between the world’s two largest economies, according to Morgan Stanley.

Developments at the G-20 Summit in Osaka, Japan over the weekend on their own do not erase the uncertainty that is weighing on corporate confidence and the broader global economy, the firm said.

“As things stand, we lack clarity on whether real progress was achieved on the sticking points that caused talks to break down in the first place,” Morgan Stanley chief economist Chetan Ahya said in a note to clients on Sunday.

On Saturday at the G-20 summit, President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed not to impose new tariffs on U.S. and Chinese goods. The U.S. said they would hold off on the potential 25% tariffs on the remaining $300 billion of imports from China and China said they would continue to buy U.S. agricultural products. This comes after a trade deal between the two countries fell through in the begging of May.

Although Trump said the two countries are “right on track,” Ahya said the lingering unknown is dangerous for corporate sentiment and a looming economic slowdown.

“Uncertainty is the enemy of the business cycle,” said Ahya.

Corporate sentiment is at multi-year lows, global PMIs for May fell broadly and Morgan Stanley Business Conditions Index fell to its largest one-month decline on record. Ahya said the data is painting a bleak picture and causing consumer sentiment to “sour.”

Ahya said the uncertainty, paired with earnings growth slowing, will cause the corporate sector to face tightening financial conditions. This “could impair lending, weaken confidence further and exacerbate the slowdown in growth,” said Ahya.

Morgan Stanley’s equity analyst Michael Wilson said to sell the trade truce news, in a note to clients Monday.

“A pause in rising trade tensions is not a fix for slowing US economic activity and earnings pressure,” said Wilson.

Although unlikely, Ahya also said in the event of re-escalation between the U.S. and China, we could end up in a global recession in three quarters.

On Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 117 points. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq both closed positive as well.

New York, London and Paris remain the world's most competitive cities — but perhaps not for long

New York, London and Paris continue to dominate as the world’s top three most competitive cities.

But their prime positions could be up for contention as progress across Europe, Asia and the Middle East shows signs of disrupting the status quo.

That’s the conclusion of the 2019 Global Cities Report from management consulting company A.T. Kearney, which ranks the world’s major cities on their attractiveness for businesses and employees.

For the tenth year in a row, New York (1st), London (2nd) and Paris (3rd) retained their titles as the world’s three most competitive cities based on a variety of factors including business activity and culture, human capital, political engagement and information exchange.

New York ranked especially highly for business activity and human capital, while Paris performed well for information exchange and London for culture.

The leading trio were joined in the top 10 of the “Global Cities Index” by Tokyo (4th), Hong Kong (5th), Singapore (6th), Los Angeles (7th), Chicago (8th), Beijing (9th) and Washington D.C. (10th).

European markets gain as investors digest ECB decision; US jobs data also in focus

The pan-European Stoxx 600 was up 0.8% during the afternoon session, technology stocks leading gains with a 1.6% rise as all sectors traded in positive territory.

As another trading week draws to a close, investors in Europe await the latest nonfarm payrolls out of the U.S, which are due out during Europe’s afternoon session.

Economists polled by Reuters are forecasting that the U.S. will add 180,000 jobs during the course of May, yet if the figure is dramatically different to this, then this could impact the U.S. Federal Reserve’s current thinking surrounding interest rates.

Another central bank that traders remain focused on is the European Central Bank. On Thursday, the ECB decided that it would postpone its first post-crisis interest rate hike, while raising its inflation forecast.

Elsewhere, trade turmoil continues to ruffle feathers. Officials from the U.S. and Mexico continued talks on Thursday, with Vice President Mike Pence stating that he was encouraged that Mexico was open to doing more on immigration, Reuters reported.

A Bloomberg report on Thursday meantime, suggested that the White House was debating on whether to postpone tariffs, however Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated that the administration’s “position has not changed.” Discussions between both nations will resume and remain a key talking point in markets.

US services sector growth tops expectations

A waitress delivers a tray of food to customers at a Denny’s restaurant in New York.

The U.S. services sector expanded at a faster rate than expected, according to data released Wednesday.

The Institute for Supply Management’s non-manufacturing index rose to 56.9 in May from 55.5 in April. Economists polled by Refinitiv expected the index to remain unchanged. A number above 50 indicates expansion while a print below 50 shows contraction.

Business activity in the sector rose to 61.2 from 59.6 in April, its 118th straight month showing expansion. New orders in the services sector also grew at a faster rate in May relative to April.

“The non-manufacturing sector continues to experience a slight uptick in business activity, but it is still leveling off overall,” Anthony Nieves, chair of the Institute for Supply Management, said in a statement. “Respondents are mostly optimistic about overall business conditions, but concerns remain about tariffs and employment resources.”

The ISM data follows the release of much weaker-than-expected employment data from ADP and Moody’s Analytics. Private payrolls increased by just 27,000 in May. Economists expected them to grow by 173,000, according to a Dow Jones estimate.

Treasury yields pared losses after the ISM data was released. The 2-year rate traded at 1.81% after hitting its lowest level since December 2017 earlier in the day. The 10-year yield recovered to trade at 2.1%.

The services data was also a welcomed surprised after ISM’s manufacturing gauge fell in May to its lowest level since October 2016.

Missouri's last abortion clinic will remain open after judge issues temporary order

The outside of the Planned Parenthood Reproductive Health Services Center is seen in St. Louis, Missouri, May 30, 2019, the last location in the state performing abortions.

A Missouri judge on Friday issued an order that will keep the state’s last abortion clinic from closing at midnight after Planned Parenthood warned Missouri was at risk of becoming the first state in nearly 50 years to lack an abortion provider.

The order from Missouri Circuit Judge Michael Stelzer, granting the clinic a temporary restraining order, ensures the clinic can remain open until at least Tuesday.

It comes amid a national battle over reproductive rights. A number of conservative legislatures, including Missouri’s, have raced in recent weeks to pass restrictive abortion laws, sparking nationwide protests.

The legal matter addressed Friday, however, was not related to those laws, which have largely concerned how late in a pregnancy an abortion may be sought. Rather, the temporary order was connected to a dispute over the clinic’s compliance with state health regulations.

The clinic, Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region, was scheduled to lose its license at midnight.

Stelzer wrote that the clinic “demonstrated that immediate and irreparable injury will result if [its] license is allowed to expire.”

No state has lacked a lawful abortion provider since 1974, the year after the Supreme Court decided the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade, which outlawed state abortion bans.

The judge ordered that the license “shall not expire and shall remain in effect” until a later ruling on the matter and scheduled a hearing for Tuesday morning.

“This is a huge sigh of relief for the many patients who need access to safe, legal abortion in Missouri,” Colleen McNicholas, an OB-GYN affiliated with the clinic, said in a statement. “The fight goes on. While temporary, we celebrate today, and tomorrow we go back to work to ensure access to abortion does not go dark at the last health center that provides abortion in Missouri.”

The order comes as part of a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood against Missouri’s health regulator, which inspected the facility in March. The Department of Health and Senior Services said it notified Planned Parenthood in early April that it was concerned about potential violations of state law. The clinic filed an application to renew its license May 16.

The department wrote in a release on Wednesday in response to Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit that its concerns were related to one case in which “patient safety was gravely compromised.” The department also noted concerns about “failed surgical abortions,” “concerns about quality control and communication with a contracted pathology lab,” and “failure to obtain informed consent.”

The state has said that the clinic failed to comply, until recently, with regulations requiring pelvic exams and a law that requires the physician who does counseling prior to the abortion to also perform the abortion.

The regulator said it cannot renew the clinic’s license until it interviews physicians who work at the clinic. Several of those doctors have refused to comply with interview requests, it said.

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, said at a news conference this week that it would be “reckless” for a judge to permit the clinic to continue to provide abortions while its license remains under review.

“If you don’t provide a standard of care that ensures the safety of women, you shouldn’t be allowed to operate. It’s that simple,” he said.

Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood, has said the clinic complies with state laws and regulations and accused Missouri of imposing unnecessary hurdles to receiving abortions.

“Over the last 10 years the state of Missouri has imposed regulation upon regulation that has no basis in medicine,” Wen, who is a physician, told CBS. “We’ve complied with all of them because we want to keep our health center open. These are things like making our hallways extra wide, forcing women to wait 72 hours — even having unnecessary, invasive pelvic exams.”

In a statement issued Friday, Wen declared “victory for women across Missouri” but cautioned that “this fight is far from over.”

“We have seen just how vulnerable access to abortion care is here—and in the rest of the country. We are glad that the governor has been prevented from putting women’s health and lives in danger—for now—and call on him to stop this egregious politicalization of public health in an attempt to ban all safe, legal abortion care in the state,” Wen said.

Gold slips from 1-month peak on Sino-US trade talk hopes

Gold bars at the Austrian Gold and Silver Separating Plant in Vienna, Austria.

Gold prices steadied on Wednesday, having retreated from a one-month peak hit in the previous session as optimism surrounding trade talks between Washington and Beijing soothed investor concerns, boosting global stocks and the dollar.

Spot gold was steady at $1,296.49 an ounce by 0808 GMT.

U.S. gold futures edged 0.1% higher to $1,297.20 an ounce.

“Gold is restrained as people are still interested in the dollar. The $1,300 level also looks like a good resistance,” said Peter Fung, head of dealing at Wing Fung Precious Metals in Hong Kong.

The dollar held firm in early Asian trading, having been supported on Tuesday by U.S. President Donald Trump downplaying the recent escalation in his trade war with China as “a little squabble” and insisting that talks between the two countries had not collapsed.

A stronger dollar makes gold more expensive for holders of non-U.S. currency.

Simultaneously, Asian stocks also turned cautiously optimistic surrounding trade developments between the two countries on Wednesday, while still not completely discounting the possibilities of a protracted spat.

“The (gold) market is holding because some people bought gold especially after the Chinese government also raised tariffs on U.S. goods,” Fung said, adding that the metal is expected to remain range-bound between $1,280 and $1,310 an ounce.

The biggest trigger for gold, which had been mostly range-bound for the past week, came on Monday after China announced that it would impose retaliatory tariffs on a range of U.S. goods.

There was some profit-taking in the previous session after prices jumped about $20 on Monday and above the key $1,300 level, analysts and traders said.

“The ongoing Sino-U.S. trade dispute has illustrated cooling conditions as both parties expressed willingness to resolve existing trade differences,” Phillip Futures analysts wrote in a note.

“Gold prices though easing up on bullish gains will remain supported as investors remain cautious on lingering U.S.-China trade worries in the near term.”

Market participants now keenly eye economic data from Europe that will provide further cues on the strength of the global economy.

Among other precious metals, silver rose 0.2% to $14.81 an ounce, while platinum fell 0.2% to $853.75.
