Chinese stocks jump after return from holidays; US-China trade talks set to resume

Investors will be watching for developments on the U.S.-China trade front, with a new round of negotiations set to be held in Beijing later this week.

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that the two countries have not yet put together a draft on the matters they agree or disagree. It comes as both Washington and Beijing are attempting to strike a deal on trade before a key March deadline, following which additional tariffs will be slapped on Chinese imports to the U.S.

U.S. President Donald Trump also said Thursday he will not meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping before that deadline.

“The reality is that olive branches, rather than rose stalks, are the best that anyone (anchored to reality) may be looking for,” said Mizuho Bank in a morning note.

It pointed to “restraints” overhanging those talks.

“First, as of late last week, President Trump had declared that he would not be meeting with President Xi before the deadline (1st Mar) on the US-China trade truce expires,” the note said.

“However, Trump has also categorically stated that there will be no US-China trade deal till he and President Xi have met. Therefore that is as good a guaranteeing that there will be no deal before the US-China truce expires.” That, the note said, not only “contradicts” Trump’s earlier tweets enthusing about a deal in the works, but also “begs the question” of whether that meant higher tariffs on Chinese imports.

One economist told CNBC that the “best case” outcome of the talks would be an “extension of the planned implementation” of the increase in tariffs.

“The problem that we have is that there’s a lot of complacency in the market about assuming that the best case actually happens,” David Mann, global chief economist at Standard Chartered Bank, told CNBC’s “Street Signs” on Monday. “Everyone’s assuming there will be no … further rises in tariffs this year,” he said.

US and China to resume trade talks next week in Beijing

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Wednesday that he and other U.S. officials will travel to Beijing next week for trade talks, aiming to clinch a deal to avert a March 2 increase in U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods.

Mnuchin said in an interview with CNBC that the talks he and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer led in Washington last week with China’s Vice Premier Liu He were “very productive.”

“Ambassador Lighthizer and myself and a large team are on our way to Beijing next week. We are committed to continue these talks,” Mnuchin said. “We’re putting in an enormous amount of effort to try to hit this deadline and get a deal. So that’s our objective.”

President Donald Trump said in his State of the Union address on Tuesday that any new trade deal with China “must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit and protect American jobs.”

Trump has vowed to increase U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to 25 percent from 10 percent currently if the two sides cannot reach a deal by 12:01 a.m. (0501 GMT) on March 2.

The two sides remain far apart on addressing U.S. demands that China make deep structural changes to its trade and economic policies and shrink the U.S. goods trade deficit. The Commerce Department on Wednesday reported the U.S. goods trade deficit with China reached $382 billion through the first 11 months of 2018, eclipsing the $375 billion gap during all of 2017, though the deficit narrowed for the month of November from October.

Trump’s negotiators want Beijing to more strenuously enforce American intellectual property rights, stop cyber-hacking of trade secrets, curb industrial subsidies and end policies that coerce U.S. companies to turn over technology to Chinese competitors as a price of doing business in China’s vast market.

A critical part of any deal, they say, would be a mechanism to verify and enforce China’s follow-through on any commitments it makes.

“We are also very focused on free and fair trade for U.S. companies to have access there and to having a more level playing field which will bring down the trade deficit,” Mnuchin said, though he said there is still have much to do to reach an agreement.

“I don’t think it would be productive to speculate on the outcome because we have a lot of work left to do. … If we can’t get to the deadline, that’s not because we haven’t worked around the clock,” Mnuchin said.

Lighthizer held a closed-door briefing with U.S. senators on Wednesday on the upcoming China talks and the proposed new trade agreement between United States, Mexico and Canada.

“He is optimistic” about the talks with China, said Republican Senator Tim Scott, who was in the meeting. He said Lighthizer told senators that purchases of agricultural products looked to remain a sticking point.

“That’s one of those things, he says, one of those outliers of an issue that still raises real concern, and that he is still looking for ways to continue to address that and hammer on that,” Scott told reporters.

China, which bought about 60 percent of the 2017 U.S. soybean crop, cut off purchases of U.S. supplies during the trade war between the two countries.

China’s Liu, during last week’s talks with Trump, promised further Chinese purchases of soybeans. Since then, Beijing has bought 2.6 million tonnes of the product.

Before the trade war, U.S. sold more than 30 million tonnes of soybeans to China annually.

Indonesia to resume search for crashed Lion Air jet’s cockpit voice recorder

Indonesia will launch a renewed search effort as early as Tuesday to find the cockpit voice recorder from a Lion Air jet that crashed into the Java Sea in October, the head of its accident investigation agency said. “If the weather is good, the ship will start to depart today,” National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT) Chief Soerjanto Tjahjono told Reuters on Tuesday.

Indonesia will launch a renewed search effort as early as Tuesday to find the cockpit voice recorder from a Lion Air jet that crashed into the Java Sea in October, the head of its accident investigation agency said.

“If the weather is good, the ship will start to depart today,” National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT) Chief Soerjanto Tjahjono told Reuters on Tuesday.

The crash, the world’s first of a Boeing 737 MAX jet and the deadliest of 2018, killed all 189 people on board.

Investigators last week said they planned to use a navy ship for a fresh search for the crashed jet’s second “black box” after a 10-day effort funded by Lion Air failed to find the cockpit voice recorder (CVR).

A KNKT source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters the team will have seven days using the ship KRI Spica to find the CVR, which could hold vital clues giving investigators insight into the actions of the doomed jet’s pilots.

Supreme Court lets fines resume for firm Mueller may be eyeing

The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed hefty contempt fines to resume against a mysterious foreign-owned company that is locked in a battle over evidence with federal prosecutors believed to be working for special counsel Robert Mueller.

But the unidentified firm is continuing its broader fight to avoid having to comply with a subpoena issued by a grand jury suspected of working in conjunction with Mueller’s ongoing probes.

Now it will face a daily fine of $50,000 as that fight continues, the D.C. Circuit revealed in an opinion published later Tuesday.

Last month, in response to a request by the company, Chief Justice John Roberts issued a stay on the fines the firm faced for not complying with that subpoena.

On Tuesday, in a filing that did not note a dissent from any justice, the Supreme Court effectively lifted Roberts’ stay of the fines, which he had imposed over the holidays until the full court could review the matter. Tuesday’s order suggests at least five justices opposed a stay.

Separately, the company has asked the Supreme Court for permission to file an application for the high court to hear its challenge to the subpoena. The court has yet to rule on that request, and may not anytime soon, according to legal experts.

“The reality is that the court declining to issue a stay suggests to me that they are not going to be in any hurry to expedite the petition,” said Steve Vladeck, a national security lawyer and professor at the University of Texas School of Law.

The company in August filed a legal action seeking to quash the subpoena, which was issued by a grand jury sitting in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. That lawsuit is sealed from public view.

Judge Beryl Howell rejected the request and imposed escalating fines after finding that the company was in contempt for refusing to comply with the subpoena, court records show.

The company then appealed her decision to the federal appeals court in Washington.

The company, according to court records, argued it was immune from the subpoena under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act. The firm also argued that the subpoena was “unreasonable and oppressive” under federal criminal procedure rules because it would require the company to violate the law of the country that owns it.

The suspicion that the subpoena was issued by a grand jury working with Mueller stems from the fact that a Politico reporter overheard a man in October ask an appeals court clerk asked for a copy of “the special counsel’s latest sealed filing so that the man’s law firm could craft its response,” Politico has reported. That request came on the same day that a filing in the subpoena-related appeals case was due.

“Three hours later, a sealed response in the grand-jury dispute was submitted to the D.C. Circuit,” Politico reported.

Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, possible collusion in that meddling by members of Donald Trump’s campaign and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump himself. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

CNN reported that its reporters in September saw several prosecutors from Mueller’s office enter Howell’s courtroom shortly after she issued a ruling upholding the subpoena. The same prosecutors were spotted entering Howell’s court Oct. 5, after the appeals court referred the case back to her for a hearing.

On Dec. 14, the appeals court heard arguments over the company’s request to quash the subpoena, without the public being allowed to attend the hearing. Before arguments began, the entire floor containing the courtroom was closed to the public.

On Dec. 18, a three-judge appeals panel rejected each of the claims raised by the company. Four days later, the company asked the Supreme Court to stay the contempt fines.

Experts say that Tuesday’s order refusing to stay the fines, will not end the matter. But it is a setback for the company, particularly given the absence of any noted dissents in the order.

“If I am their lawyers, I am not optimistic, given that there were no recorded dissents,” Vladeck said. “So I think that the question is whether the mystery corporation is willing to keep paying the contempt fine while it presses the court to take the question on the merits.”

Japan says it will resume commercial whaling in July 2019

Japan will withdraw from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and resume commercial whaling from July, it said on Wednesday, abandoning a decades-old campaign to persuade the commission to allow it to hunt whales commercially. The announcement drew criticism from anti-whaling groups and others, with Australia saying it was “extremely disappointed” and New Zealand regretting the resumption of the “outdated and unnecessary” commercial killing of the ocean mammals.

Japan will withdraw from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and resume commercial whaling from July, it said on Wednesday, abandoning a decades-old campaign to persuade the commission to allow it to hunt whales commercially.

The announcement drew criticism from anti-whaling groups and others, with Australia saying it was “extremely disappointed” and New Zealand regretting the resumption of the “outdated and unnecessary” commercial killing of the ocean mammals.

Japan’s commercial whaling will be limited to its own territorial waters and its exclusive economic zone, said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, who made the announcement at a news conference after a cabinet decision on Tuesday.

“From July 2019, after the withdrawal comes into effect on June 30, Japan will conduct commercial whaling within Japan’s territorial sea and its exclusive economic zone, and will cease the take of whales in the Antarctic Ocean/the Southern Hemisphere,” Suga said in a statement.

“The whaling will be conducted in accordance with international law and within the catch limits calculated in accordance with the method adopted by the IWC to avoid negative impact on cetacean resources,” he said.

Oil prices resume drop, shed most of last session's gains

Oil prices fell on Thursday to erase most of their gains from the day before, resuming declines seen earlier in the week amid worries about oversupply and the outlook for the global economy.

The front-month U.S. crude contract had dropped more than $1, or 2.24 percent, to $47.10 per barrel by 0423 GMT, offseting gains of 96 cents chalked up on Wednesday.

International benchmark Brent crude futures were down over $1, or 1.82 percent, at $56.20 per barrel, after climbing almost 2 percent the session before.

“Wednesday’s recovery was short-covering. Investors quickly moved their attention to deteriorating fundamentals in the oil markets including more signs of slowing economic growth next year, record production and the lack of confidence with OPEC’s pledge to curb production,” said Xi Jiarui, chief oil analyst at consultancy JLC.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other oil producers including Russia agreed this month to curb output by 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) in an attempt to drain tanks and boost prices.

Oil prices are down more than 30 percent from peaks seen in October.

But the cuts will not happen until next month and production has been at or near record highs in the United States, Russia and Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia’s energy minister, Khalid al-Falih, said he expected global oil stocks to fall by the end of the first quarter, but added that the market remained vulnerable to political and economic factors as well as speculation.

Technical analysis showed U.S. oil may retest support at $45.94 per barrel, a break below which could cause a loss to $44.43, Reuters market analyst Wang Tao wrote on Thursday.

British Airways to resume Pakistan flights after a decade

But security has since improved, with militant attacks sharply down in the mainly Muslim country of 208 million people. In Islamabad, a web of road checkpoints dotted across the city for more than a decade has mostly been dismantled.

Richard Crowder, the Deputy British High Commissioner to Pakistan, told reporters in Islamabad BA’s return was in large part due to “an improvement in the security environment in this country”.

Pakistani officials hailed BA’s move, saying it will offer confidence to other foreign investors and make the country less isolated.

“Once it gets around the world that British Airways has put its stamp of approval on Pakistan, it will put us one or two notches up as a country to do business with,” said Commerce Minister Abdul Razak Dawood.

BA, which is owned by Spanish-registered IAG, is due to begin the London Heathrow-Islamabad service on June 2, with three weekly flights by the airline’s newest long-haul aircraft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

At present, only loss-making national carrier Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flies directly from Pakistan to Britain, but its aging fleet of planes is a frequent source of complaints by passengers.

Middle Eastern carriers Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways and Emirates have a strong presence in Pakistan and have been eating into PIA’s dwindling market share. Turkish Airlines also lays on a regular service to Pakistan.

Dow set to fall more than 150 points as tech shares resume slide

U.S. stock index futures pulled back ahead of Friday’s open as some of the most popular technology shares were under pressure once again.

At around 8:45 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were 183 points lower, indicating a decline of more than 170 points at the open. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures also fell.

Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google-parent Alphabet all traded down at least half a percent in the premarket. These stocks, which make up the popular “FAANG” trade, have already fallen sharply this week. In that time period, they have all fallen at least 2.3 percent through Wednesday’s close.

Trading on Wall Street is set to resume after market participants observed the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday. However, Friday’s session is scheduled to be abbreviated with the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq both due to close early at 1 p.m. ET.

Stock futures were also under pressure on Friday as crude oil prices plunged. West Texas Intermediate futures fell more than 6.5 percent to $50.97 per barrel, reaching their lowest level of the year.

The drop sent the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE) — which tracks the S&P 500 energy sector — down more than 2.5 percent before the bell. Shares of Marathon Oil, TechnipFMC and Devon Energy led the XLE lower.

Crude’s decline comes at a time when U.S.-China trade tensions have raised concern of a possible economic slowdown. The two countries have imposed tariffs on billions of dollars worth of each other’s goods as the Trump administration takes on a protectionist stance on trade.

U.S. and Chinese leaders are expected to meet at a G-20 meeting in Argentina at the end of the month, though few economists expect the scheduled talks to resolve the trade dispute.

China stocks fell on Friday in anticipation of the U.S.-China trade talks. The Shanghai Composite dropped 2.5 percent while the Shenzhen A Share index pulled back 3.7 percent.

On the data front, investors are likely to closely monitor a flash reading of Markit Services PMI data for November at around 9:45 a.m. ET.

Here's the only time you should put a foreign language on your resume

In today’s global economy, speaking a second language is highly prized. But if you’re tempted to add a language to your resume that you haven’t spoken since the seventh grade, here’s a word of advice: don’t.

If you’re not a native speaker and it’s not something you’ve been building on for your specific career, “I don’t think it belongs [on your resume],” Amanda Augustine, a TopResume career advice expert, tells CNBC Make It.

To determine your level of proficiency, Augustine says to ask yourself: Could I travel to a country that only speaks this language and hold fluent conversations without any outside assistance?

If your answer is no, remove the language from your resume.

Granted, being bilingual or multilingual is incredibly marketable, says Augustine, but the costs can outweigh the benefits if you’re not as proficient as you claim to be.

“It really depends on if it’s important to your role,” says the career expert. If you’re fairly proficient in a language but it has no bearing on the job to which you are applying, don’t bother adding it to your resume, says Augustine.

Be mindful that the interviewer might speak the language and want to test your fluency, especially for common languages like Spanish. An inability to communicate clearly could end up making you look deceitful, casting doubt on the rest of your resume, says Augustine.

If you’re hired without a test, your company might eventually expand to another country or conduct business with clients who speak a different language. As a result, your employer will quickly learn that you fibbed, a risk you shouldn’t take when the role likely didn’t require a foreign language in the first place.

For positions where a secondary language is desirable or crucial to the role, ask yourself whether you’d feel comfortable holding the entire interview in that language, says Augustine. She recommends that you also ask yourself if you’d be able to conduct business deals in that second language.

For native speakers, there’s no downside to disclosing a foreign language. But do remember that you have limited space on your resume so you should still prioritize any job-related skills.

If you still want to include a language, provide context. Augustine suggests explaining whether you speak fluently or conversationally, for instance. Understand, however, that such descriptions are highly subjective and could create confusion.

No matter what you do, if you pretend you have a higher level of proficiency than you have, “you’re probably not going to land the job,” says Augustine.

“You need to sell yourself,” she says. “If it doesn’t help your candidacy, eliminate it.”
