(Bloomberg) – European stocks fell with US stock futures, and Asian stocks were mixed because positive sentiment from a strong Wall Street day was offset by trade tensions. Italy's government bonds fell when the government coalition fell.
In Japan, bond yields fell after the central bank changed purchases over three maturity zones in a row, indicating that the central bank is seeking to address a flattened yield curve. The yen rose higher for the third day. Tax capacity remained standing with gold, which hovered just over $ 1,500 an ounce.
Global equities are ending the week and are still struggling to recover from Monday's fall, as worries claim that China may continue to weaken the currency. The Asian country's producer price index contracted for the first time in nearly three years, dampening the outlook for producers' profits in the midst of the trade war with the US investor focus. Now it will go to the release of US producer prices on Friday.  "Trade issues are still worsening, and we're in for some confusion," Karissa McDonough, chief interest strategist at People's United Advisors, told Bloomberg TV. "It seems neither Trump nor China has any real incentive to come to the table."
Elsewhere, the oil rose higher, but was still poised for a huge weekly loss as investors weighed the worsening China trade battle against the latest steps from Saudi Arabia to stabilize the market.
