Global stocks mixed after US and China increase tariffs

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — European stock markets drifted higher Monday while Asia was mixed after the U.S. and China escalated their war over trade and technology with new tariff increases.

U.S. markets were closed for the Labor Day holiday, draining some of the energy from global trading. Benchmarks in London, Paris and Shanghai advanced. Tokyo and Hong Kong declined.

“The short-lived truce will probably provide limited relief,” said Zhu Huani of Mizuho Bank in a report. “Businesses have become increasingly uncertain about future prospects, evidenced by the pullback in business investment amidst growing concerns on growth.”
