European markets open slightly lower amid US-China trade talks

Market focus is largely attuned to trade developments between the world’s two largest economies, with a new round of negotiations expected in Washington on Tuesday.

A follow-up session of higher-level talks is expected later in the week, as both sides look to resolve their protracted dispute before a March 1 deadline.

Last week, President Donald Trump suggested he might extend the deadline for a deal, which would stop an immediate increase in tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to 25 percent from 10 percent.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares, excluding Japan, edged down 0.1 percent.

Back in Europe, investors are likely to monitor a flurry of corporate earnings. Danone, HSBC and BHP Billiton are all expected to publish quarterly results Tuesday morning.

In the U.K., Japanese carmaker Honda is reportedly set to announce the closure of its Swindon car plant on Tuesday, risking the loss of 3,500 jobs.

The company is set to hold a news conference at 0800 GMT to announce further details.

Goldman Sachs expects Brexit talks to go right down to the wire

That’s because unless May can get a Brexit deal approved by a majority of U.K. lawmakers over the coming weeks, she will either have to ask the bloc to delay the process or thrust the country into chaos by leaving without a deal.

“In our view, the Prime Minister will repeatedly try to defer the definitive parliamentary vote on her negotiated Brexit deal, and the intensification of tail risks will continue to play a role in incentivising the eventual ratification of that deal in a divided House of Commons,” Goldman said in a note to clients on Friday.

Airbus set to scrap production of the world’s largest airliner

Europe’s Airbus announced plans to scrap production of the world’s largest airliner on Thursday, abandoning its A380 superjumbo program in favor of smaller, more nimble jets. In a statement published on Thursday, Airbus said the last A380 will be delivered in 2021. The decision comes after Emirates — the largest A380 customer — decided to cut back its orders of the iconic aircraft and order a total of 70 of the smaller A350 and A330neo models instead.

Airbus set to scrap production of the world's largest airliner

Europe’s Airbus announced plans to scrap production of the world’s largest airliner on Thursday, abandoning its A380 superjumbo program in favor of smaller, more nimble jets.

In a statement published on Thursday, Airbus said the last A380 will be delivered in 2021.

The decision comes after Emirates — the largest A380 customer — decided to cut back its orders of the iconic aircraft and order a total of 70 of the smaller A350 and A330neo models instead.

“As a result of this decision we have no substantial A380 backlog and hence no basis to sustain production, despite all our sales efforts with other airlines in recent years. This leads to the end of A380 deliveries in 2021,” Airbus CEO Tom Enders said in a statement on Thursday.

“The consequences of this decision are largely embedded in our 2018 full year results,” Enders said.

Airbus said it would start discussions with unions in the coming weeks regarding the 3,000 to 3,500 jobs potentially affected by the news.

European markets: China trade data beats expectations, Brexit in focus

The pan-European Stoxx 600 was up around 0.4 percent shortly after the opening bell, with most sectors and major bourses in positive territory.

Europe’s industrials stocks led the gains during early morning deals, up around 1 percent amid earnings news. France’s Airbus was one of the top sectoral performers, after the company announced stronger-than-anticipated fourth-quarter results. Europe’s largest aerospace group also said it was scrapping its flagship A380 cruiseliner. Shares of the Paris-listed stock rose more than 4 percent on the news.

Looking at individual stocks, Germany’s Gerresheimer surged to the top of the European benchmark on Thursday morning. The medical equipment maker said it was “back on the growth path” after reporting fourth-quarter results, prompting shares to advance over 10 percent.

Britain’s Convatec slumped to the bottom of the index during morning trade. The catheter and colostomy bag maker reported adjusted operating profit had slipped 6 percent in 2018. It said the risk of a no-deal Brexit had prompted the group to stockpile appropriately to deal with any potential supply disruptions. Shares of Convatec almost 20 percent.

Meanwhile, lawmakers in the U.K. are set to debate and vote on the next steps in the Brexit process later in the session.

It comes as Prime Minister Theresa May continues to try to get a deal through Parliament, with time running out before the country leaves the European Union next month.

BP CEO Bob Dudley warns oil market uncertainty could lead to a 'real crunch'

A flurry of intensifying risks could trigger an energy market “crunch” over the coming months, according to the chief executive of BP.

His comments come at a time when energy market participants expect U.S. sanctions on crisis-stricken Venezuela, as well as OPEC-led production cuts, to offset a potential supply glut this year.

When asked whether production cuts from the so-called OPEC+ coalition were likely to help stabilize oil prices, Dudley replied: “Well, there’s a lot of variables here and there’s a lot of things that could lead to a real crunch.”

Speaking to CNBC’s Dan Murphy at an energy forum in Cairo, Egypt, Dudley cited “tragic circumstances” in Venezuela, uncertainty in Libya, rising production levels from the Permian Basin and the impact of U.S. sanctions on Iran.

“So, the OPEC+ countries agreed to reduce production in the first quarter, we don’t even really have data from it. We will have to see what the data looks like but the markets feel tight to me.”

“We plan BP on a sort of fairway, which I think is good for the world, between $50 a barrel and $65. That’s good for producers and consumers,” Dudley said.

Brent crude, the international benchmark for oil prices, was trading at $61.90 a barrel Tuesday morning, up 0.6 percent, while West Texas Intermediate (WTI) stood at $52.68, 0.5 percent higher.

Futures point to a triple-digit gain for the Dow after tentative deal to avoid government shutdown

U.S. stock index futures were higher Tuesday morning, with market participants hopeful a fresh set of trade talks could help to resolve a dispute between the world’s two largest economies.

At around 4:05 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures rose 156 points, indicating a positive open of more than 143 points. Futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite were also seen slightly higher.

Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, with the U.S. and China trying to hammer out a deal before an early March deadline.

Both sides expressed hopes the new round of negotiations, which began in Beijing on Monday, would bring them closer to a comprehensive trade agreement.

The trade dispute has already started to impact global growth, with investors worried a protracted dispute could soon severely hurt corporate earnings.

Meanwhile, market sentiment got a boost amid news U.S. lawmakers had secured a tentative deal on border security funding on Monday.

The drafted agreement — which congressional aides said did not contain funds for President Donald Trump’s border wall — could help to prevent another partial government shutdown due to begin from Saturday.

In corporate news, Nissan, Under Armour and Shopify are among the major companies expected to report their latest quarterly results before the opening bell. Occidental Petroleum, Activision Blizzard and TripAdvisor are all due to publish earnings after market close.

On the data front, the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index for January is expected to be released at around 6:00 a.m. ET. Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) figures for December will be published later in the session.

Here's how a massive nationwide protest against Maduro could shape Venezuela's future

Venezuela’s opposition supporters will take to the streets for nationwide anti-government protests on Tuesday, ratcheting up the pressure on embattled President Nicolas Maduro.

It comes at a time when tensions in Venezuela are reaching boiling point, with the South American country in the midst of the Western Hemisphere’s worst humanitarian crisis in recent memory.

The anti-government demonstration, organized by opposition leader Juan Guaido, takes place on Youth Day in Venezuela.

The day commemorates young people who fought and died in the Battle of La Victoria in 1814 during Venezuela’s war for independence. It is widely recognized as a day to recognize the role that the youth play in shaping the country’s economic and social future.
