(Bloomberg) – Will the decline in European markets be? In the inbox before open, every day. Register here.
U.S. Equity futures rose alongside equities in Europe and Asia as traders analyzed the latest Washington trade news and awaited comments from the Federal Reserve chief. Tax capital fell with European government bonds.
Investors started on Monday on a more positive note after a three-week decline in global equities and a series of choppy trading sessions that shook the markets from oil to bonds. When volatility jumps in August, traders will turn to Fed Chairman Jerome Powell's address scheduled at the Kansas Fed's annual Jackson Hole rally on Friday, which will be the key to measuring whether US policy makers will add to July's interest rate cut.  "This week is an opportunity for special chairman Powell to correct the message and show that they are on one, and that there is a clear view of where the economy is going," Anne Anderson, head of fixed income in Sydney for UBS Asset Management Australia, Bloomberg told TV. "This fear must be arrested."
While White House economic director Larry Kudlow said recent phone calls between US and Chinese trade negotiators had been "positive", President Trump suggested he was not ready to sign an agreement and linked to discussions with Hong Kong and said for the first time on camera that it would be more difficult to reach an agreement if there was a violent conclusion to the protests.
Elsewhere, crude oil was steady following a previous gain following a drone strike on oil and gas facilities in Saudi Arabia that underlined geopolitical risk in the Middle East.
Here are some important events coming up:
The minutes of the Fed's July meeting will provide details of the discussions leading to the first 10-year cut in interest rates when released on Wednesday. On Thursday, Bank Indonesia will host course decision and press conference with Governor Perry Warjiyo.
