European stocks climbed with U.S. equity futures Tuesday as investors awaited developments on trade talks between the world’s largest economies. Asian shares were mixed as a rebounding dollar put pressure on emerging economies.
The Stoxx Europe 600 Index increased 0.3 percent to 345.01 the highest in more than three weeks. Tech firms and banks were among the biggest gainers as the Stoxx Europe 600 Index shrugged off unexpectedly weak German industrial production numbers to edge higher. The euro held losses after the data. Futures on the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 all pointed to gains at the open. In Asia, Japan closed higher, though stocks slid in South Korea and were little changed in Hong Kong. Treasuries were flat, while oil traded below $49 a barrel in New York.
