Stocks and Bonds: World


US stocks turned lower in afternoon trading on Wednesday, with major indexes erasing earlier gains as both Boeing and Biogen sold off following their results. Indexes had traded in positive territory for much of the session, putting the S&P 500 on track for a fifth straight day of gains. Earnings drove the move higher, with technology and material shares up on the back of strong results.

US stocks rallied on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 on track for a fourth straight session of gains boosted by strong corporate results, including Apple's. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones were up more than 1 percent while the Nasdaq rose more than 2 percent, boosted by better-than-expected results from several major tech companies. The S&P 500 has gained more than 6 percent from its session low last Wednesday, when the benchmark was down nearly 10 percent from its intraday record.
Tokyo stocks jumped 2.64 percent on Wednesday, reversing a sharp drop the previous day, as investors took their lead from another Wall Street rally. The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange added 391.49 points to finish at 15,195.77 and the broader Topix index of all first-section shares rose 2.58 percent, or 31.05 points, to 1,236.41.
Britain's blue-chip FTSE 100 index edged lower by midday on Wednesday, with British American Tobacco knocking the most points off the benchmark after its trading update. The maker of Pall Mall and Dunhill cigarettes said the trading environment remains challenging because of pressure on consumer disposable income world-wide, currency issues and a slow economic recovery in western Europe.
- European shares nudged higher on Wednesday, supported by a raft of positive corporate earnings and mild inflation data from the United States which may encourage the US Federal Reserve to keep interest rates lower for longer. However, the session was volatile, with euro zone banks under pressure early on after Spain's EFE news agency reported that several European lenders might fail EU bank stress tests.
Hungary bucked gains in Central European equities on Wednesday as a government proposal for a new tax on Internet traffic knocked down the shares of Magyar Telekom, the country's biggest Internet services provider. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government, re-elected with a strong majority in April, has cut personal income taxes in the past few years but imposed higher taxes on some corporate sectors with strong foreign ownership, including banks and telecommunications, unnerving international investors.
Indian shares rose on Wednesday for a fourth straight session of gains, tracking stronger global markets and closing at their highest in nearly a month as automakers surged on hopes of better sales in the festive season. The NSE index rose as much as 2.8 percent for the week, snapping a four-week losing streak and crossing the psychologically important 8,000 point level during the day. Indian markets will be closed on Thursday and Friday for holidays.
