On Wall Street, US stocks reversed early losses to rise on Wednesday as investors digested disparate economic data and snapped up big-tech stocks that were battered during Tuesday’s selloff.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100 jumped after data from the Institute for Supply Management showed improving supply chain conditions, declining input prices and slower demand. All were developments that the US Federal Reserve would welcome.

Today’s agenda

Overseas data: FOMC meeting minutes, Wednesday US time (Thursday AEDT). Eurozone PPI, Thursday. US ADP employment change, initial jobless claims, Thursday. China trade, Caixin PMI, Thursday.

United States

The S&P 500 rose 1.1 per cent as of 12.08pm New York time. The Nasdaq 100 rose 0.9 per cent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.7 per cent. The yield on 10-year Treasuries declined 0.03 of a percentage point to 3.71 per cent.

Europe

A report showing French inflation unexpectedly slowed added to signs of easing price pressure in the euro area. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index had broad gains, rsising 1.4 per cent.

Asia

News of China considering further support for property developers boosted shares in Hong Kong.
