Global markets

Overseas, Asian stocks were mixed on Friday as investors kept an eye on negotiations over additional fiscal stimulus in the U.S. In the US, stocks closed little changed on Thursday as lawmakers struggled to push through new fiscal stimulus before year-end. The sentiment was also dampened by the release of weaker-than-expected jobless claims data.
