Netflix added 1.53 million paid subscribers in the US and 7.31 million abroad, beating Wall Street estimates.

The ban was initiated in response to the U.S. avian flu outbreak in 2015.

Stocks set to open slightly higher as traders digest Brexit vote and focus on bank earnings

U.S. stock futures were slightly higher on Wednesday, following a parliamentary defeat for British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal.

Dow futures were 76 points higher as of 2:12 a.m. ET, indicating a 26 point rise at the open, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures were also higher.

Traders were digesting news that the U.K. leader had lost a vote on her Brexit deal by 230 votes, which is believed to be the highest margin of defeat for any sitting government in British political history.

May told lawmakers that her Conservative government “will listen” following the vote and that a statement will be made in Parliament on January 21 where the prime minister is due to present a “plan B” for the withdrawal agreement.

U.K. opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who leads Britain’s Labour party, said he has tabled a motion of no confidence in the government that will be debated and voted on Wednesday. Sterling was barely changed Wednesday, trading just below the flatline versus the dollar at $1.2855.

In other political news, the partial U.S. government shutdown — the longest in history — has extended into its 26th day, as a standoff between Democrats and the Trump administration over the president’s border wall money shows no signs of being resolved any time soon.

Meanwhile, China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China, made its biggest ever daily net cash injection via reverse repo operations, totaling $82.73 billion. The news came after comments from the Chinese state planner and Premier Li Keqiang suggested the country would inject more stimulus amid concerns of a slowdown in economic growth.

Larry Fink foresees a bullish surge on a US-China trade deal

The markets would see a bullish surge in investor sentiment if the U.S. were to reach a trade deal with the China, BlackRock Chairman and CEO Larry Fink told CNBC on Wednesday. The deal would need to be substantial enough to reduce tension and include both sides calling off tariffs on each others goods, Fink said. “Until we see better certainty on trade and China, we’re not going to see super elevated flows,” said Fink, co-founder of the world’s largest money manager. “If there was a resolution

Larry Fink foresees a bullish surge on a US-China trade deal

The markets would see a bullish surge in investor sentiment if the U.S. were to reach a trade deal with the China, BlackRock Chairman and CEO Larry Fink told CNBC on Wednesday.

The deal would need to be substantial enough to reduce tension and include both sides calling off tariffs on each others goods, Fink said. In the latest tariff moves, the U.S. levied 10 percent duties on $200 billion worth of goods from China, prompting Beijing to put tariffs on $60 billion worth of U.S. goods.

“Until we see better certainty on trade and China, we’re not going to see super elevated flows,” said Fink, co-founder of the world’s largest money manager. “If there was a resolution between the U.S. and China, related to trade, we would see a surge in investment sentiment.”

Beijing and Washington are trying to resolve their trade disputes under a tariff cease-fire that ends March 2. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping last month agreed to halt any new levies to give diplomacy a chance.

Fink warned late last year the trade conflict between the U.S. and China could turn into a “full-fledged” trade war if things didn’t change quickly.

Fink appeared on “Squawk Box” shortly after BlackRock reported quarterly earnings that missed expectations and assets under management under $6 trillion. Fourth-quarter revenue slightly beat expectations, according to a revised estimate buy Refinitiv after the earnings report.

In the interview, Fink also said the stock market has made a near-term closing bottom on Christmas Eve. But whether that holds depends on geopolitical risks, he added.

— Editor’s note: This story was updated after Refinitiv revised its projection for BlackRock revenues after the company reported its financial results. According to the revised estimate, BlackRock sales slightly exceeded fourth-quarter expectations.

WATCH: Here are BlackRock CEO Larry Fink’s market predictions for 2019

Construction and materials were leading the gains in early deals, with Lafargeholcim up by 2 percent. The stock was upgraded to buy from underperform by Bank of America. There was also some momentum in personal and household goods due to stock upgrades. The U.K. housebuilder Taylor Wimpey rose 3.4 percent and led the gains across Europe. Renault shares were under the flatline too after news that former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn was indicted on two new charges of financial misconduct.

European shares move slightly higher with Brexit, Fed in focus; UK GDP due

The pan-European Stoxx 600 was 0.2 percent with almost every sector in positive territory. Construction and materials were leading the gains in early deals, with Lafargeholcim up by 2 percent. The stock was upgraded to buy from underperform by Bank of America.

There was also some momentum in personal and household goods due to stock upgrades. The U.K. housebuilder Taylor Wimpey rose 3.4 percent and led the gains across Europe.

The Swiss company Straumann was also among the top gainers, after its CEO said that it wants to increase sales five-fold within a decade, Reuters reported.

On the other hand, Orion dropped more than 6 percent after Jefferies cut its grade on the pharma company. The research firm argued that the current 4.5 percent dividend yield is not enough to support the share price, Reuters reported.

Furthermore, Flybe fell as much as 90 percent after a consortium of Virgin Atlantic Ltd, Stobart Group and Cyrus Capital Partners agreed to buy the low-cost airline.

Renault shares were under the flatline too after news that former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn was indicted on two new charges of financial misconduct.

Getting rid of debt is a pressing issue for Gen X and younger boomers

While the majority of middle-class Americans in their 40s and 50s are saving for retirement, getting rid of debt is a more pressing concern. Among that group, 33 percent say their top savings priority for 2019 is paying off debt, according to a new report from AARP and the Ad Council. That ranked ahead of building up their retirement fund (21 percent) and an emergency fund (11 percent). Even among just 50-somethings, paying off debt ranked slightly ahead of retirement savings, 31 percent vs. 29

Futures slightly higher as US and China conclude mid-level trade talks

U.S. stock futures rose slightly on Wednesday following news that the U.S. and China had concluded mid-level trade talks.

As of 6:50 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures climbed 77 points, indicating a higher open of 55.55 points; S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures were also higher.

Discussions between Washington and Beijing over trade concluded, the Chinese foreign ministry said Wednesday. Both countries have been engaged in a tense sparring of tariffs, targeting billions of dollars’ worth of imports in each other’s economies with levies.

Traders are hopeful of a resolution to the U.S.-China trade war, and are eagerly watching for any signs of a potential deal. U.S. Under Secretary of Agriculture for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney said earlier on Wednesday that he thought negotiations “went just fine.”

The Dow notched its first three-day winning streak since late November on Tuesday. Investors had been on edge in previous weeks, fleeing to less risky assets as fears of a potential slowdown in global economic growth took hold.

Wall Street appeared to follow the positive sentiment seen in Europe and Asia on Wednesday. Indexes in both regions were mostly higher on the back of optimism surrounding trade talks.

Apple recovers slightly from its worst day since 2013

Apple was up about 3.4 percent Friday, paring losses from its worst day since 2013. The stock fell nearly 10 percent Thursday after Apple cut its forecast for its fiscal first quarter, blaming weak iPhone sales and a slowing Chinese economy.

Apple lost tens of billions of dollars in market value Thursday, ending the trading day at $142.19 per share, its lowest since July 2017. In just three months, the stock has shed $452 billion in market capitalization — a loss that outsizes Facebook’s total market value. From its 52-week high of $233.47 per share on Oct. 3, Apple shares have fallen by 39.1 percent as of Thursday’s close. Its market value is now around $674 billion.

Apple suppliers like Corning, Lumentum and Qorvo were also positive on Friday, after taking a hit on Thursday.

Investors have feared for many months that iPhone sales were not as rapid as they used to be, and Apple’s letter to investors Wednesday confirmed those fears. In an interview with CNBC’s Josh Lipton, CEO Tim Cook said his plan for turning sales around includes pushing Apple’s trade-in program to minimize the cost of a new iPhone to consumers, ramping up payment plans and hand-holding customers through the process of upgrading their phones.

European stocks open slightly higher on hopes of Sino-US talks

European stocks open slightly higher on the final day of 2018 as major stocks across the world look to record calendar year declines.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 is 0.09 percent. The FTSE 100 is down 0.15 percent, while the French CAC is up 0.44 percent. The German DAX is closed on Monday.

Market focus is largely attuned to the progress on the U.S.-China trade standoff after hints emerged when President Donald Trump said he had a “very good call” with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday to discuss trade. He also claimed that “big progress” was being made on this front. His statements have brought optimism to stocks worldwide that have been under pressure this year.

Following the tweet, however, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump “may be overstating how close the two sides are to an agreement,” citing sources “familiar with the state of negotiations.”

Trump’s comments came after both he and Xi earlier this month agreed to a 90-day pause in tariff escalation.

However, market sentiment remained on edge after survey data out of China on Monday suggested that China’s manufacturing activity in December contracted even more than expected.

Back in Europe, the deadlock around Brexit continues to concern investors. On Sunday, U.K. Trade Minister Liam Fox said there is a “50-50” chance that Brexit may be stopped if Parliament rejects the government’s divorce deal with the European Union next month.

The U.K. Parliament is set to vote on the Brexit deal in the week starting January 14.

European markets open slightly higher ahead of Federal Reserve rate decision

The declines have added to mounting pressure on the U.S. central bank to consider abandoning its commitment to yet more interest rate hikes.

Complicating matters for the central bank, President Donald Trump warned Tuesday that it must tread carefully in order not to “make yet another mistake,” while a Wall Street Journal editorial called for a pause.

Nonetheless, market participants still widely expect the Fed to announce a quarter-point rate hike on Wednesday.

In Asia, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares, excluding Japan, was up 0.4 percent.

Back in Europe, investors are likely to closely monitor U.K. inflation rate figures for November at around 9:30 a.m. London time. The euro area is scheduled to publish construction output data for October later in the session.
