In other central bank news, the Bank of England also kept rates unchanged on Thursday, and said its economic outlook would “continue to depend significantly” on the “nature and timing” of Brexit.

The European Union agreed to an extension to the date of the U.K.’s withdrawal from the bloc, but said the length of the delay would depend on whether Parliament approves Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal next week.

European markets open slightly higher after UK lawmakers vote to delay Brexit

Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, as sentiment improved on a report that more progress has been made in talks between the world’s two largest economies.

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He spoke via telephone with U.S. Trade Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Xinhua news agency reported Friday.

It comes after Mnuchin said on Thursday that a summit to secure a comprehensive trade agreement between President Donald Trump and Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping would not happen at the end of March as previously discussed.

In Asia, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares, excluding Japan, rose 0.5 percent.

Back in Europe, British Prime Minister Theresa May is preparing once more to try and win approval for her twice-rejected Brexit deal.

U.K. lawmakers voted on Thursday to seek a delay in Britain’s exit from the EU. It marked the end to a dramatic trilogy of events this week which have added yet more confusion into the whole Brexit process.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal suffered a second humiliating defeat as it was voted down by a majority of 149 votes. Then on Wednesday, U.K. lawmakers rejected the idea of leaving the bloc without a withdrawal agreement in place.

On the data front, investors are likely to closely monitor a final reading of annualized euro zone inflation rate data for February at around 10:00 a.m. London time.

Treasury yields slightly lower amid reports of US-China trade progress

Investor focus was mostly attuned to global trade developments Monday, after a Wall Street Journal report overnight said that the U.S. and China were closing in on a deal.

Elsewhere, investors will likely monitor construction spending figures, which are due to be released at 10 a.m. ET.

Meanwhile, the Treasury is set to auction $48 billion in three-month Treasury bills and $39 billion in six-month bills on Monday.

Stocks set to open slightly higher amid reports of US-China trade breakthrough

U.S. stock futures were slightly higher Thursday, amid reports the U.S. and China have begun outlining a deal to end their protracted trade war.

As of 1:45 a.m. ET, Dow futures rose 63 points, indicating a higher open of 78 points. S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures also climbed.

Reports early Thursday morning said Washington and Beijing have begun drawing up memorandums of understanding over trade. Officials from both countries met for talks this week and higher-level discussions are set to be held on Thursday and Friday.

The U.S. and China are trying to resolve their differences over trade ahead of a March 1 deadline. However, speculation has risen that there may be an extension to that target, after President Donald Trump said it was not a “magical date.”

Investors also digested the minutes from the Federal Reserve’s latest monetary policy meeting. The central bank highlighted downside risks to the economy from its January meeting.

Those risks included “the possibilities of a sharper-than-expected slowdown in global economic growth,” a “rapid waning of fiscal policy stimulus” and “further tightening of financial market conditions.”

On the data front, a flurry of economic reports are expected throughout the day. Jobless claims, the Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index, durable goods orders, manufacturing PMI (purchasing managers index) and services PMI are due later this morning.

In terms of earnings, Chinese tech giant Baidu and American food firm Kraft Heinz are set to report results after the bell Thursday.

A follow-up session of higher-level talks is expected later in the week, as both sides look to resolve the long-running trade war 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, advanced almost 1 percent — hitting its highest level since early October.

Back in Europe, investors are likely to monitor another batch of earnings reports. Glencore, Lloyds Banking Group and Fresenius are all expected to publish their latest quarterly results on Wednesday.

On the data front, the euro area is scheduled to publish a flash reading of consumer confidence for February at around 3:00 p.m. London time.

Meanwhile, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May visits Brussels, Belgium to meet European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. The meeting comes as May continues with her bid to renegotiate her Brexit deal with the bloc, with less than 38 days to go before the country leaves the European Union.

Dow futures point to slightly lower open amid US-China trade talks; Fed minutes due

U.S. stock index futures were slightly lower early Wednesday, with market participants monitoring the latest round of trade talks between the world’s two largest economies.

At around 6 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures indicated a negative open of less than 25 points. Futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite were both little changed from the previous session.

Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, after officials from the U.S. and China launched a new round of negotiations on Tuesday.

A follow-up session of higher-level talks is expected later in the week, as both sides look to resolve the long-running trade war before an early March deadline.

President Donald Trump has suggested he might extend the deadline for a deal, telling reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday that March 1 was not a “magical date.”

An extension to the current deadline would prevent an immediate increase in tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to 25 percent from 10 percent.

In corporate news, investors are likely to closely monitor a flurry of earnings reports. CVS Health, Bausch Health and Garmin were among the major companies expected to publish their quarterly results before the opening bell.

Agilent, Cheesecake Factory and Sturm Ruger are all set to publish their latest figures after market close.

There are no major economic reports scheduled on Wednesday. However, the Federal Reserve is expected to publish minutes from its January policy-setting meeting.

Last month, the U.S. central bank effectively signaled no further rate hikes and hinted at possible tweaks to its balance sheet normalization.

Market focus was largely attuned to President Donald Trump’s state of the union address on Tuesday, after he vowed to build a wall that is a source of a deep partisan divide.

In Asia, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares, excluding Japan, was little changed from the previous session.

Dow futures seen slightly lower; Alphabet set to report earnings

U.S. stock index futures were slightly lower Monday morning, as market participants awaited another batch of quarterly corporate results.

At around 3:00 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures slipped 15 points, indicating a negative open of more than 36 points. Futures of the S&P and Nasdaq were also seen relatively downbeat.

The moves in pre-market trade come after a surge in optimism on Wall Street at the end of last week. A U.S. Labor Department report on Friday showed nonfarm payrolls jumped by 304,000 last month — the largest gain since February 2018.

The jobs report, along with better-than-expected manufacturing figures, pointed to underlying strength in the world’s largest economy.

Trading was subdued on Monday, with many regional markets in Asia closed for the Lunar New Year. China’s financial markets are closed all week, with South Korea’s index set to reopen on Thursday.

On the data front, investors are likely to monitor factory orders figures for November at around 10:00 a.m. ET.

In corporate news, Alexion Pharma, Clorox and Sysco are among the major companies scheduled to report their latest results before the opening bell. Alphabet, Gilead Sciences and Seagate Technology are all expected to publish their latest figures after the bell.
