    The pound plunged as Brexit again threw the U.K. government into turmoil. Trade-sensitive industrial shares led the S&P 500 Index higher in afternoon trading amid hope that China and the U.S. would de-escalate their trade spat before the G20 summit later this month, even as the threat of new tariffs looms. For all the worries assailing investors -- Brexit, the trade dispute and Italian budget stress -- they are at least receiving a steady message from the U.S. central bank.

    [$$] Asia stocks fall on lower oil prices, pound edges higher

    Oil prices were more stable on Wednesday in Asia but the previous session’s sharp fall on demand concerns weighed on energy stocks in the region while the pound climbed ahead of a cabinet meeting to agree the draft Brexit treaty. Falls for energy stocks were a uniting factor for Asia-Pacific equities on Wednesday following sharp 7 per cent falls for oil overnight, with Brent crude down just 0.1 per cent on the day at $65.39 a barrel. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index dipped 0.5 per cent, pulled lower by a 3.1 per cent fall for energy stocks as Chinese oil producers CNOOC and PetroChina were among the day’s worst performers, falling 4.5 per cent and 3.2 per cent respectively.
