Scoreboard: Sino heart-starter

Some promising numbers from China, and hints the US may hold off tapering a while longer, gave Wall Street a kick.

A pick-up in Chinese trade data and maybe ongoing taper delay talk seem to have given markets a boost last night. Well, US markets, with the S&P500 up 1 per cent to 1671, the Dow 140 points to 15,063 and the Nasdaq 1.3 per cent to 3706. Stocks in Europe were flat to negative, although the divergence between US and European markets doesn’t seem to be anything other than a reversal from Friday’s session.
