China Threatens to Retaliate If U.S. Enacts Hong Kong Bill
(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. China threatened unspecified "strong countermeasures" if the U.S. Congress enacts legislation supporting Hong Kong protesters, in a sign of the deepening strain between the world's two largest economies as they attempt to seal a trade deal.China's foreign ministry issued the warning Wednesday after the U.S. House passed a package of measures backing a pro-democracy movement that has rocked the former British colony for more than four months. Among them was the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which subjects the city's special U.S. trading status to annual reviews and provides for sanctions against officials deemed responsible for undermining its "fundamental freedoms and autonomy."QuickTake: How the U.S. Congress Is Riling China on Hong KongWhile the legislation must also pass the U.S. Senate and be signed by President Donald Trump to become law, it already has strong bipartisan support in the Republican-run upper chamber. The Hong Kong measures were passed by the Democrat-controlled House by unanimous voice votes Tuesday.Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Geng Shuang warned American lawmakers to stop meddling in China's internal affairs "before falling off the edge of the cliff," without specifying how it would retaliate.

GLOBAL MARKETS-Asian shares pause after 5-day rally, Brexit in focus
TOKYO/SYDNEY, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Asian stocks barely moved on Thursday as soft U.S. retail sales data raised fears about the health of the world's largest economy, sucking the steam out of a five-session rally, while hopes of a Brexit deal kept sterling volatile. Chinese shares were mostly flat while Japan's Nikkei ticked up and U.S. stock futures were barely changed. The S&P 500 shed 0.20% on Wednesday after data showed U.S. retail sales contracted in September for the first time in seven months, in a potential sign that manufacturing-led weakness could be spreading to the broader economy.

Bank of America's stock rises toward 6-day win streak earnings beat, upbeat CEO comments on the economy
Shares of Bank of America Corp. rallied 2.3% toward a sixth straight gain in morning trading Wednesday, after the bank beat third-quarter earnings expectations and provided an upbeat outlook on the U.S. economy. That would match the 6-day win streak ending Jan. 18. Chief Executive Brian Moynihan said on the post-earnings conference call with analysts that despite repeated discussions around a potential recession and concerns over the impact of the U.S.-China trade war, the bank's activities suggests the U.S. economy is in "solid shape" and the consumer continues to benefit by strong employment prospects." Moynihan said he should know, since BofA's annual customer outgoing payments of nearly $3 trillion represents about 15% of the U.S. economy. He said consumer payments are up 6% year to date from the same period a year ago. In addition, Moynihan said commercial loans grew 6%, including 6% growth in the small-business segment. "These are tangible examples that the U.S. economy is in solid shape despite the worries about trade wars, capital investment slowdowns and other global macro conditions," Moynihan said, according to a FactSet transcript. Moynihan did say, however, the bank managed to generate operations savings despite a lower interest rate environment and "other revenue challenges with a slowing economy." The stock has gained 6.6% over the past 12 months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has advanced 4.7%.
