Stocks Slide, Dollar Rises as Trade Worries Deepen: Markets Wrap
U.S. equity futures and European stocks tracked a slide in Asian shares on Thursday as trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies showed little sign of easing. Treasuries were steady and the dollar strengthened. S&P 500 futures pointed to a big drop at the New York open after China’s flagship People’s Daily published two commentaries assailing American moves to curb Chinese companies.

India bucked the trend, with equities there soaring as election results showed Prime Minister Narendra Modi was set to win a majority on his own. Treasuries held their gains from Wednesday after minutes of the Federal Reserve’s last policy meeting showed officials judged their patient approach to interest-rate changes would be appropriate “for some time.” The pound extended losses amid a growing revolt over Brexit that looks increasingly likely to force Theresa May from power. The euro was steady as voting got underway in European elections.
