Trump's trade deal optimism lifts Asian stocks

Asian stocks rose Tuesday after Donald Trump said he expected China to do a deal on trade, but the optimism didn't carry over into European trade.

Julian Satterthwaite reports.

Trade deal or no trade deal?

On Monday Donald Trump sounded optimistic about China's intentions: (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: (SOUNDBITE PART OVERLAID ON DIFFERENT ANGLES OF TRUMP SPEAKING/ MEMBERS OF MEDIA / MACRON LISTENING AND U.S FIRST LADY MELANIA TRUMP) "So when you say do you think they want to, maybe they want to and maybe they don't, but I think they want to make a deal.

I'm not sure they have a choice and I don't say that as a threat." Asian investors took note of his comments at the G7 summit in France.

Stocks rose around the region in Tuesday trade.

Shanghai closed higher by over one percent.

Japan's Nikkei was up only slightly less.

The gains helped offset sharp losses after both sides announced new tariffs on Friday.


China won't confirm Trump's claim that it has offered to restart trade talks.

Traditional safe havens like the Japanese yen and gold also saw gains as a result.

And by the time Europe opened, any optimism had ebbed.

Most key indexes there edged lower from the open.

The FTSE was down over half a percent as traders returned from a public holiday.

Germany's DAX also fell from the open, before rallying.

New numbers out Tuesday adding to the economic gloom there.

The figures confirm its economy contracted on weaker exports in the second quarter.

Italy bucked the downward trend though.

Stocks there gained ground on hopes a new government could soon be formed.

A cheaper, faster COVID-19 test [Video]

A cheaper, faster COVID-19 test

A method for fast, cheap, yet accurate testing for COVID-19 infection has been developed by a team of researchers. The method simplifies and frees the testing from expensive reaction steps, enabling upscaling of the diagnostics. This makes the method particularly attractive for places and situations with limited resources. It is equally interesting for repeated testing and for moving resources from expensive diagnostics to other parts of the care chain. The study led by researchers at the Karolinska Institutet was published in the journal Nature Communications."We started working on the issue of developing a readily available testing method as soon as we saw the developments in Asia and southern Europe, and before the situation reached crisis point in Sweden," says principal investigator Bjorn Reinius, research leader at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics at Karolinska Institutet. "Our method was effectively finished already by the end of April, and we then made all the data freely available online."The spread of the new coronavirus at the end of 2019 in China's Wuhan region quickly escalated into a global pandemic. The relatively high transmission rate and a large number of asymptomatic infections led to a huge, worldwide need for fast, affordable, and effective diagnostic tests that could be performed in clinical as well as non-clinical settings.
