Stocks and Bonds: World


US shares weakened in cautious trading on Tuesday as nervous investors sought low-risk assets after Turkish jets shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian border. Oil prices were up more than 2 percent on the prospect of more chaos in the Middle East. Gold and US Treasuries, traditional safe-haven assets, also rose.

US stock indexes closed slightly lower in a quiet trading day on Wall Street after last week's strong gains, while a big healthcare deal failed to impress investors on Monday. Pfizer's announcement of what is expected to be the biggest-ever healthcare deal pushed its shares down 2.6 percent making it one of the biggest drags on the S&P. Target company Allergan closed 3.4-percent lower after the $160 billion deal announcement.
Tokyo's benchmark stock index cast off early losses Tuesday as bargain hunting pushed it to a fresh three-month high after a holiday long weekend. The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange rose 0.23 percent, or 45.08 points, to finish at 19,924.89, its highest since late August. The broader Topix index of all first-section shares closed up 0.17 percent, or 2.76 points, at 1,605.94.
UK shares retreated on Tuesday, with the British travel sector down again after signs that armed attacks in France and Mali were dampening customer demand. British travel and leisure stocks were hit after data from ForwardKeys showed that new flight bookings to Paris, one of the world's most visited cities, have fallen by over a quarter in the week following the November 13 attacks that killed 130 people.
European shares dropped to one-week lows on Tuesday as mounting geopolitical tensions following the downing of a Russian warplane near the Syrian border pushed investors out of risky assets like equities. Travel stocks were among the hardest hit following a US travel warning, while sentiment was also depressed by disappointing updates from companies such as Zodiac Aerospace.
Indian stocks edged higher on Tuesday as energy companies rallied after Saudi Arabia pledged to work towards oil price stability, although broader gains were capped on caution ahead of the expiry of derivatives contracts this week. Traders said sentiment ahead of the expiry was especially cautious given the amount of contracts rolled over to the next month were running at below recent months, indicating caution about the market's outlook.
Southeast Asian stock markets struggled and ended mixed on Tuesday, as a possible US interest rate hike next month weighed on investor sentiment. Singapore shares gained 0.7 percent, Malaysia added 0.4 percent, closing at its highest since November 9. The Jakarta Composite Index added 0.1 percent, although foreign investors sold Indonesian shares worth of $23.8 million.
