Key News Overnight:

U.S. stocks jumped the most in six weeks as chipmakers rallied on deal news and the latest retail-sales data boosted confidence that the economy isn’t headed for a downturn. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones were up 1.5% and 0.8% overnight respectively;

Gold fell after the Trump Administration rebuffed reports that prospects for a trade deal with China were diminishing, undercutting the metal’s haven appeal. Bullion traded below the psychologically important level of $1,300 an ounce;

Zinc in London rebounded from the worst weekly loss in more than three months as declining exchange inventories and a leading smelter’s financial woes stoked supply concerns;

Newmont Mining Corp. managed to fend off a hostile bid by Barrick Gold Corp. by agreeing to a joint venture around the two companies’ projects in Nevada;

Brent crude and WTI both gained 1.3% overnight, up to 66.58 (US$/bbl) and 56.79 (US$/bbl) respectively;
