Turkey ETF jumps more than 4% as Ankara and Washington forge ceasefire in Syria
A popular exchange traded fund Thursday afternoon added to its gains after Vice President Mike Pence said the U.S. and Turkey have agreed on a ceasefire in Syria. Speaking from Ankara, Pence said the ceasefire would last 120 hours and allow Kurdish fighters to withdraw from a safe-zone area. The iShares MSCI Turkey ETF gained nearly 4.1% Thursday afternoon in New York. Thursday's advance helped to push the Turkey-specific ETF, which gives investors exposure to the country's stock market, in to the green, producing a 0.6% weekly gain. Meanwhile, the Turkish lira rose 1.1% against the buck. A dollar last bought 5.8268 lira, according to FactSet data.

United Kingdom ETF rises after tentative Brexit deal announced
A popular U.K.-specific exchange-traded fund rose Thursday after Britain and the European Union struck a tentative deal to exit from out of the trade bloc. The iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF rose 0.4%. The iShares ETF maintains a high concentration of large and midcap companies and a particularly heavy concentration to financial shares (19.9%) and the energy sector (17.95%), according to FactSet data. For the week, the ETF is on pace for a gain of 0.9% after a 3.4% rise last week. The rally for the U.K. ETF comes as the embattled pound has been surging against the dollar on hopes of a Brexit divorce agreement. The buck last changed hands against the pound at $1.2849, with the U.S. dollar down 1.2% against the U.K. unit. A stronger pound tends to cap gains in U.K. stocks because it can weigh on revenue for the export-heavy economy. Despite reaching the draft Brexit agreement, the U.K. parliament must ratify the pact on Saturday.

Stocks finish slightly lower after retail sales drop draws questions over consumers' health
U.S. stocks ended lower after the first drop in retail sales figures in seven months raised fears that weakness in the U.S. economy was broadening beyond the manufacturing sector. The S&P 500 fell 0.2% to finish near 2,990. The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 21 points, or 0.1%, to end around 27,004, based on preliminary numbers. The Nasdaq Composite was down 0.3% to end near 8,124. Retail sales fell 0.3% in September, well below the 0.3% increase forecast from economists polled by MarketWatch. The prospect of a U.S.-China trade deal also came under doubt after China threatened to retaliate over bills moving through Congress backing pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. This comes as earnings season kicked off this week, with corporate results mostly topping analysts' expectations so far. Shares of Bank of America Corp. rose 2% after the company reported third-quarter earnings that beat Wall Street expectations.
