    Oil Dips as U.S.-China Tensions Add to Nerves on Global Economy

    (Bloomberg) -- Oil edged lower as an escalating war of words between the U.S. and China added to caution over the prospects for a global recovery in demand.Futures in New York lost 0.4% in Asian trading after falling 2% on Friday. China warned that some in the U.S. were pushing the countries toward a new Cold War, stoking concerns that deteriorating relations between the superpowers could complicate the market’s recovery from a historic demand crash. Beijing last week abandoned its decades-long practice of setting an annual target for economic growth due to uncertainty caused by the coronavirus.However, there are signs the oil market is positioning itself for a recovery. U.S. shale drillers have cut the number of active rigs to the lowest level since 2009, trimming output further. This comes as OPEC+ slashes daily output by almost 10 million barrels in an effort to reduce a glut.Oil has surged about 75% this month as pockets of demand return in China and India after the easing of lockdown restrictions, and as U.S. crude inventories start to decline. However, the recovery is expected to be long and uncertain, with the risk of a second wave infections possibly complicating a rebound.The U.S. should give up its “wishful thinking” of changing China, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Sunday during his annual news briefing on the sidelines of National People’s Congress meetings in Beijing. He also warned America not to cross China’s “red line” on Taiwan.While fuel consumption climbs in some nations as lockdown restrictions ease, the cheapest U.S. gasoline in nearly two decades won’t be enough to entice nervous American’s to hit the road for Memorial Day weekend. The uncertainty around travel is so great due to the virus that AAA is not releasing a forecast for the first time in 20 years.Read: World’s Smartest Oil Traders Have Taken to the Seas: Julian LeeBig oil annual general meetings in the U.S. and Europe this week should shed light on how heavily producers have been hit by lockdowns, with Total SA, BP Plc, Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp. among those fronting shareholders. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin has given his government until June 15 to come up with a plan to support the country’s oil industry.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Dollar edges higher as Hong Kong tensions fuel safe-haven demand

    The dollar edged higher on Monday as worries about a standoff between the United States and China over civil liberties in Hong Kong fuelled demand for safe-haven currencies. Sterling was on the defensive after members of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's party called for the resignation of an influential aide for breaking travel restrictions during the coronavirus lockdown. A senior White House official has said Beijing's plan to impose a security law on the former British colony of Hong Kong could lead to U.S. sanctions, which could worsen an already tense relationship between the world's two-largest economies.

    Stocks Edge Higher With U.S. Futures; Crude Slips: Markets Wrap

    (Bloomberg) -- Stocks in Asia climbed along with U.S. equity futures as traders monitored more signs of economies reopening around the world and a slowdown in infection rates in some countries, offsetting for now the rise in U.S.-China tensions.Japan’s Topix index and Sydney shares opened up over 1%, with Seoul rising more modestly.

Still, the U.S. is considering restricting travel from Brazil, which now has the second-highest number of cases.Fresh turmoil in Hong Kong that spilled over into street protests this weekend is threatening to damage an already souring Sino-U.S. relationship. The U.S. should give up its “wishful thinking” of changing China, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, warning that American leaders are potentially pushing toward a new Cold War. Bullish sentiment is prevailing for now and global equities remain about 30% higher than the March lows, spurred by stimulus measures and optimism for a swift rebound from the virus.“One big threat to the recovery in markets is the escalating war of words between the U.S. and China,” said Shane Oliver, head of investment strategy at AMP Capital Investors Ltd. in Sydney. “The main focus will likely remain on continuing evidence that the number of new Covid-19 cases is slowing in developed countries, progress towards medical solutions, the reopening of economies and signs that economic activity is picking up.”Here are some key events coming up:U.S. markets are closed Monday for Memorial Day holiday, while the U.K. is shut for the Spring bank holiday.Earnings continue with companies including Nissan Motor, British Land, Royal Bank of Canada and HP Inc.Singapore’s parliament on Tuesday is expected to announce another stimulus package.Thursday brings the U.S. jobless claims reading for the week ended May 23.Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell participates in a virtual discussion on Friday.These are the main moves in markets:StocksFutures on the S&P 500 rose 0.4% as of 9:12 a.m. in Tokyo.

    May.24 -- Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the U.S. should give up its "wishful thinking" of changing China, warning that some in America were pushing relations to a "new Cold War." The bilateral relations have worsened dramatically in the past few months as America became one of the countries worst hit by the coronavirus pandemic, which was first discovered in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Selina Wang reports on "Bloomberg Daybreak: Australia."

    The Worst May Be Coming for Japan’s Abe Even as Virus Eases

    (Bloomberg) -- Japan’s coronavirus emergency looks set to end on Monday, but Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s political troubles may be just beginning.Abe’s efforts to curb the outbreak and ease its economic damage have been widely ridiculed as slow and ineffective. He’s been outshone by regional governors, who pressed him to finally call the state of emergency credited with halting the spread of infections for now. Now, a favoritism scandal has helped push his approval rating to a level that has forced past premiers to resign.Moreover, the crisis has undermined support for his economic stewardship and depleted the resources Abe will need to avert a deep recession and pull off another comeback like ones that made him the country’s longest-serving premier. As a result, some in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party are weighing possible successors, led by former Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida.“The more unease grows over the economy, the less people support him,” said Lully Miura, president of Tokyo-based political consulting firm Yamaneko Research Institute. “People who haven’t received financial aid are losing their jobs and companies are going under.”Abe’s difficulties provide a warning to other world leaders who, like him, weathered the initial pandemic shock only to be confronted with a historic economic slowdown. Analysts expect Japan to suffer a contraction of almost 22% this quarter, the deepest since records began in 1955.While Japan has suffered far fewer coronavirus infections and deaths than any of its Group of Seven peers and Abe is on the brink of lifting the state of emergency for Tokyo on Monday, his handling of the outbreak has reinforced concerns that his government has grown complacent after seven years in power. Abe has been criticized for delaying an emergency declaration when local cases began to surge and for being slow to close Japan’s borders to Chinese visitors.Meanwhile, botched efforts to distribute cash handouts and re-usable masks became fodder for talk show ridicule. An Instagram video of Abe relaxing on a sofa meant to encourage people to stay home instead got slammed for appearing tone deaf.Apart from the pandemic, Abe has been forced to change plans after another in a long string of controversies over government actions that appear to benefit political allies. Last week, Abe shelved a retirement bill that opposition lawmakers said would’ve allowed his favored candidate to stay on to become the country’s top prosecutor.Making matters worse, the potential candidate, Hiromu Kurokawa, is now set to resign. Justice Minister Masako Mori said Thursday that Kurokawa had played mahjong games for money, despite emergency virus orders discouraging such social activities.Support for Abe’s cabinet slumped to 29%, the lowest since he took office in 2012, in a poll published Monday by the Asahi newspaper. Another survey published by the Mainichi newspaper showed approval had plunged 13 percentage points in less than four weeks to 27%, according to a poll released by the Mainichi newspaper Saturday. Any level below 30% is traditionally seen as a danger zone for the government. Disapproval surged 19 percentage points to 64% in the Mainichi survey.“When support falls, his sway over the party weakens,” Miura said. In another sign of Abe’s weakening position, his junior coalition partner forced him to change direction on the size and scope of cash handouts for individuals.Abe has bounced back from several crises since taking office for the second time in 2012 and gone on to win six national elections, benefiting from a weak and splintered opposition. The coronavirus, however, comes at a time when many in the LDP had already begun to think about who will succeed him after his third -- and ostensibly final -- term as party leader expires in September 2021.Who’s Next?Kishida, the former foreign minister and current LDP policy chief, is widely seen as most likely to get the job, Miura said. Other potential candidates include Health Minister Katsunobu Kato and Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura, who have both bolstered their profiles by playing key roles in Japan’s pandemic response.Polls generally show Shigeru Ishiba, a former defense minister who has distanced himself from the government, as the public’s favorite.Abe no longer has the fiscal ammunition he enjoyed when the economy was steady and the country had virtually full employment. Japan’s troubles are likely to deepen as households limit spending to essentials and companies cut back on investment, production and hiring to stay afloat.Still, it might be too early to rule out Abe from staging another comeback and even securing a fourth term as LDP leader.“Support will definitely fall for a week or two, but after that what happens to his support rate will depend on the spread of the virus,” said Harukata Takenaka, a political science professor at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies. “If the situation settles down, people may see him as having done a good job.”(Updates with latest poll in 10th paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
