The world's largest shipping firm warns of 'considerable uncertainties' as trade tensions rise

A.P. Moller-Maersk is the largest container shipping company in the world.

Danish shipping firm Moller-Maersk posted first-quarter profit close to expectations on Friday, warning that trade tensions and slowing economic growth constitute “considerable uncertainties.”

Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) totaled $1.24 billion for the quarter, compared with $1.25 billion forecast by analysts in a Reuters poll.

Maersk, the world’s largest container shipping company, said it still expects 2019 EBITDA of about $5 billion.

“We are still facing considerable uncertainties,” CEO Søren Skou said in a press release, mentioning “the risk from trade tensions.”

In the first quarter, “volumes on trans-Pacific trade between Asia and North America have shown signs of decline and new tariffs can potentially reduce expected growth in global container volumes by up to 1 percentage point.” he added.

President Donald Trump unexpectedly accused China of reneging on a deal earlier this month and announced that tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods would increase to 25% from 10% on May 10.

Beijing retaliated, raising levies on $60 billion worth of U.S. products. In the last two weeks, the Trump administration also put Chinese telecom giant Huawei on a blacklist that prevents it from buying from American companies without U.S. government permission.

Speaking to CNBC Friday, Skou highlighted that the U.S. also has an outstanding discussion with the European Union.

“If the Chinese-U.S. conflict is resolved then our expectations would be that it would immediately lead to a discussion between the EU and the U.S. So I don’t believe that we will be done with tensions anytime soon, ” he told CNBC’s “Street Signs” Friday.

Treasury yields could rise ‘really sharply’ if China starts selling, strategist says

Bond yields could be driven “sharply” higher if China deploys the so-called “nuclear option ” in its escalating trade war with the U.S., a senior strategist told CNBC Tuesday. Torchwood Capital Senior Advisor Giles Keating told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” that Chinese excess savings had flooded into capital markets and had driven yields down. “If that is now reversed, because China stops buying all those Treasurys, then bond yields can, I’m afraid, move up really sharply,” he added.

Treasury yields could rise 'really sharply' if China starts selling, strategist says

China’s President Xi Jinping (C) sits with members of the Chinese delegation during a bilateral meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump (Not Pictured) at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, April 7, 2017.

Bond yields could be driven “sharply” higher if China deploys the so-called “nuclear option ” in its escalating trade war with the U.S., a senior strategist told CNBC Tuesday.

Torchwood Capital Senior Advisor Giles Keating told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” that Chinese excess savings had flooded into capital markets and had driven yields down.

“If that is now reversed, because China stops buying all those Treasurys, then bond yields can, I’m afraid, move up really sharply,” he added.

While such a move could potentially trigger a massive rise in interest rates on U.S. government debt, causing plenty of damage to the U.S. economy as they are a benchmark for all sorts of loans, other analysts have suggested it is unlikely due to the pain it could inflict on home soil.

BlackRock head of Asian Credit, Neeraj Seth, told “Squawk Box Asia” Tuesday that while China may not be aggressively buying more U.S. government notes, it is not actively selling in the market either.

China still holds about $1.13 trillion of U.S. Treasurys, a 4% decline over a 12-month period, but that this is “nothing significant,” he said.

China's Liu is still set to join trade talks this week as US says tariffs will rise on Friday

President Donald Trump speaks while meeting with China’s Vice Premier Liu He in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, U.S., April 4, 2019.

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is expected to join a delegation in the United States this week, a potentially positive sign for a trade agreement between the U.S. and China even as the Trump administration says it will hike tariffs on Chinese goods.

The tariff increase will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told reporters on Monday. But the U.S. would reconsider the duties if talks get back on track, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also said.

Liu’s presence could be telling: market watchers considered it more likely that the U.S. would hike tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods to 25% from 10% if he did not attend the talks. Still, some new roadblocks have emerged ahead of the next round of negotiations.

U.S. officials on Monday accused China of reneging on commitments made as part of the negotiations. Lighthizer described an “erosion of commitments” on the part of the Chinese.

The Chinese team is set to come to Washington on Thursday and Friday, according to Lighthizer. Talks continue, and the two sides are not cutting off discussions after President Donald Trump threatened to increase tariffs already placed on Chinese products and add new duties, the trade official said.

U.S. stocks did not move drastically in extended-hours trading following the remarks from Lighthizer and Mnuchin. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust, which tracks the S&P 500 index, was down about 0.5% in extended trade.

The comments from top U.S. trade officials follow a choppy day in both Asian and U.S. stock markets sparked by Trump’s tweeted tariff threat. Stocks initially fell Monday after Trump first announced the tariff increase in a tweet Sunday.

While U.S. equities initially plunged Monday, they recovered throughout the day as investors surmised that the president may not have upended the talks. CNBC previously reported that a Chinese team would still come to the U.S. this week for talks, although it may be smaller than originally planned.

U.S. officials said they saw a shift in tone in the talks over the weekend. Mnuchin said China wanted to go back on clear commitments that had the potential to change the deal significantly.

Lighthizer and Mnuchin did not comment on the separate tariffs on $325 billion in Chinese products that Trump threatened in a tweet Sunday.

UK decides to keep pennies in circulation despite rise of cashless payments

One pence and 2 pence coins will remain in circulation a year after the U.K. finance minister had called the coins “obsolete.”

On Friday, he announced a task force “to safeguard the future of cash and ensure its availability for years to come.”

In 2016, the U.K.’s Royal Mint, the government-owned company that produces coins for the country, revealed there are 11.3 billion pennies in circulation. But 60% of 1 pence and 2 pence coins are only used once, while 8% of pennies are thrown away.

This means the Royal Mint has to produce even more pennies to replace the ones that have gone out of circulation, about 550 million a year.

The value of small change is being debated around the globe. Australia phased out 1 cent and 2 cent coins in the 1990s, while Canada stopped producing copper coins in 2013.

In the euro zone, where 1 cent and 2 cent coins are still produced, countries like Ireland are voluntarily rounding prices to the nearest 5 cents to avoid using smaller change.

While the Royal Mint won’t reveal how much it costs to make a penny — nor how much the U.K. would save by stopping production, it did say that it costs less than 1 pence to make 1 pence.

The British penny is made of steel and coated in copper. Steel prices have increased over the years, which helps explain why Canada ceased minting its copper-coated steel penny back in 2012.

In America however, 2017 research showed that it cost 1.8 cents to produce one U.S. penny.

While the U.S. cent was mostly made of copper for more than 150 years, rising copper prices forced the U.S. Mint to dramatically reduce the amount of copper used in the coin.

Now a penny is primarily made up of zinc — and is only 2.5% copper. Though ironically now zinc prices are rising too.

Australian stocks rise as most Asian markets stay shut for holidays

Stocks in Australia advanced on Wednesday as most major Asian markets remained closed for holidays.

In overnight market action on Wall Street, the S&P 500 climbed to a new record, gaining about 0.1% to close at 2,945.83. The Dow Jones Industrial Average also added 38 points to finish its trading day at 26592.91.

The moves came amid the ongoing earnings season, with more than half of the S&P 500 companies having reported by the end of the trading day stateside on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, investors also continue to watch out for developments on the U.S.-China trade front. White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said Tuesday that the Trump administration’s trade talks with China will be resolved within the next two weeks.

Following Mulvaney’s comments, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Wednesday that he had a “nice” working dinner the prior night with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He in Beijing.

Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer are currently in the Chinese capital as the two economic powerhouses aim to reach a deal to end their protracted trade conflict.

The U.S. Federal Reserve is also set to announce its monetary policy decision later on Wednesday stateside. Fed watchers will be closely monitoring if the central bank changes its dovish tone and how it plans to proceed with its balance sheet reduction program.

Ahead of that decision, U.S. President Donald Trump called for the Fed to slash interest rates by 1 percentage point and to implement more quantitative easing.

In a two-part Twitter post, the president unfavorably compared the Fed to its Chinese counterpart and said if monetary policy in the U.S. was looser, the economy would “go up like a rocket.”

“We expect the (Federal Open Market Committee) to leave the Funds rate steady. We also expect the FOMC to make no more than minor changes to its post‑meeting statement. The first paragraph of the post‑meeting statement will acknowledge Friday’s better than expected GDP growth. We expect little reaction by the USD to the FOMC meeting,” Joseph Capurso, senior currency strategist at Commonwealth Bank of Australia, wrote in a morning note.

There was, however, a “risk” the FOMC could lower the interest rate on excess reserves to “bring down the effective Funds rate,” he added.

The U.S. dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of its peers, was at 97.491 following an earlier high of 97.528.

The Japanese yen traded at 111.49 against the dollar after strengthening from levels above 111.6 in the previous trading session. The Australian dollar changed hands at $0.7049 after touching an earlier low of $0.7035.

Oil prices declined in the afternoon of Asian trading hours, with the international benchmark Brent crude futures contract slipping 0.67% to $71.58 per barrel. U.S. crude futures also fell 0.97% to $63.29 per barrel.

Goldman shares rise as CEO Solomon says client activity ‘more constructive’ after slow start

Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon said that Wall Street clients have woken from the stupor that impacted trading results across the industry in the first few months of this year. “Client activity has been better,” Solomon told CNBC’s David Faber in an interview from the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, CA. “After the fourth-quarter speedbump and with the government shutdown, we had a very slow start to the year.

Goldman shares rise as CEO Solomon says client activity 'more constructive' after slow start

Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon said that Wall Street clients have woken from the stupor that impacted trading results across the industry in the first few months of this year.

“Client activity has been better,” Solomon told CNBC’s David Faber in an interview from the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, CA. “After the fourth-quarter speedbump and with the government shutdown, we had a very slow start to the year. We saw pickup particularly in March, and activity has been more constructive in April.”

Shares of Goldman ticked higher after Solomon’s comments, and the bank was up 1.5% at 11:18 am.

Solomon added that in capital markets, the initial public offerings of huge companies have helped matters, and that action is “really starting to gain some momentum.”

Earlier this month, Goldman reported subdued first-quarter results as it, along with the rest of Wall Street, posted declines in trading revenue. The New York-based bank also said a business review undertaken by Solomon and his deputies, who took over last year, would be complete in 2020, disappointing some analysts who expected it earlier.

“From a macro perspective, the global economy is moving along pretty well,” Solomon said. “The U.S. economy is doing well, there’s no question China has responded better to stimulus.”

US Treasury yields rise as consumer spending surges in March

U.S. government debt prices fell on Monday a government report showed consumer spending surged to its highest level in 9 and a half years in March.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to price, was 1.33% higher at around 2.5355, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also higher at around 2.9519.

Consumer spending rose 0.9% overall and 0.7% when adjusted for inflation, driven by a jump in expenditures on motor vehicles and health care. Meanwhile, the core personal consumption expenditures was flat for the month and up 1.6% year over year, and the headline number rose 0.2% for a 1.5% increase over the year.

Market participants eagerly await a meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve and the publication of Chinese factory data for further clues on policy direction in the world’s largest economies.

It comes after the U.S. reported stronger-than-anticipated growth over the first three months of the year. Official data showed gross domestic product (GDP) stood at an annualized rate of 3.2% in the first quarter, beating analyst expectations.

The U.S. central bank’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is due to announce its latest monetary policy decision on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury is set to auction $39 billion in 13-week bills and $36 billion in 26-week bills.
