Stocks and Bonds: World


US stocks rose on Monday, reversing much of the previous session's sharp decline, as China's steps to stimulate its slowing economy and as earnings lured money back into equities. In the second industry-wide cut in two months, China's central bank on Sunday reduced the amount of cash that banks must hold as reserves in a move to help spur bank lending and combat slowing growth.

Tokyo stocks ended marginally lower on Monday, following a tumble on Wall Street that was fuelled by worries about Greece's future in the eurozone. The benchmark Nikkei 225 at the Tokyo Stock Exchange slipped 18.39 points to 19,634.49, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares fell 0.38 percent, or 6.01 points, to 1,582.68.
Mining stocks helped Britain's top share index rebound on Monday after China moved to support stuttering growth in the world's biggest consumer of metals. The FTSE 350 mining index rose 2 percent, the top sectoral gainer, after China cut the amount of cash that banks must hold as reserves.
European shares made a positive start to the week on Monday, thanks to deal-making in the telecoms sector and stimulus from China, though gains were not enough to entirely erase the losses from Friday's sharp sell-off. This week brings a raft of first-quarter trading updates from European companies, which are heading for their best earnings season for four years on the back of a weak euro and improving economic conditions.
China shares dived on Monday in volatile trade as fears of a regulatory crackdown on the world's hottest stock market offset the central bank's most aggressive move yet to bolster the slowing economy. A cut in banks' reserve requirements announced by the People's Bank of China on Sunday was the largest since the global financial crisis, but markets reacted half-heartedly as traders focused on moves by the securities regulator which they feared could pop a gravity-defying, six-month rally.
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed 0.58 percent lower on Monday, with investors booking profits from recent gains, mostly in big-caps, while foreign investors extended their net purchase position. More than half of the equities headed south, led by PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's top listed firm by market value, with a 1.5-percent fall, followed by Hanoi-based lender BIDV that lost 1.04 percent.
Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended weaker on Monday, tracking global markets on concerns of further crackdowns on margin financing by Chinese authorities, but China's steps to stimulate its slowing economy helped cap the fall. Along with Chinese crackdown on margin financing, renewed debt worries in Greece also weighed on investor sentiment.
