  • Taiwan stocks were higher after the close on Wednesday, as gains in the Oil, Gas & Electricity, Semiconductor and Cement sectors led shares higher.
  • Canada’s equity benchmark will rise about 4.4 percent in 2018, a return that would lag last year’s 6 percent gain that trailed most global indexes, strategists say.
  • Technology shares led the rally and analyst upgrades fueled gains in consumer-discretionary companies. The NASDAQ 100 Index climbed 1.8 percent, the biggest gain since Oct. 27. The NASDAQ Composite closed above 7,000 for the first time, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index also finished at an all-time high.
  • European stocks started the year in the red, failing to capitalize on a positive Asian session as the strength of the region’s common currency weighed on exporters.
