Sentiment improves in global equity markets

US equities rebounded on Monday, with the battered tech sector leading the rebound while consumer-focused counters were lifted by reports of heavy spending during Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping season. The apparent willingness from Italy to be flexible regarding its 2019 budget plans helped European indices. China shares could be pressured by comments yesterday by Trump that the next set of tariffs on Chinese imports will likely go ahead.
