The weekend goings on in Saudi Arabia........>

STOCKS: The weekend goings on in Saudi Arabia boosted miners & refiners, as gold
and oil prices surged, but broader risk sentiment struggled as geopolitical

Chinese economic activity data provided further headwinds for risk assets, even

- Meanwhile, the closure of Japanese markets sapped liquidity from the time
- Hang Seng -1.0%, CSI 300 -0.3%, ASX 200 unch.
- S&P 500 futures -17, DJIA futures -129, NASDAQ 100 futures -75.
