(Bloomberg) — Global stocks and currencies were mixed amid a subdued tone in markets on Friday. Treasuries climbed as trading resumed after the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.

Futures contracts for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 rose following recent commentary from Federal Reserve officials that supported the case a slower pace of interest-rate increases. European equities futures inched lower.

Hong Kong-listed technology stocks led declines among Chinese shares as investors weighed recent gains against an upswing in Covid-19 infections. Mainland benchmarks managed to eke out small gains in the face of lockdown-like restrictions affecting parts of Beijing.

The dollar fluctuated after three straight days of losses.

US markets will have a shortened session on Friday after the full-day closure Thursday.

Yields on Japan’s benchmark 10-year bond rose one basis point to 0.25%, the top of the central bank’s target band, after Tokyo’s inflation picked up more speed to hit its fastest pace in 40 years.

Malaysia’s ringgit extended a rally as the appointment of a new prime minister cleared the political gridlock that has gripped the nation since recent elections.

The won climbed after the central bank governor said he needed to see strong signs of inflation under control before discussing any prospect of a pivot away from policy tightening.

The outlook for Chinese markets is improving, despite the current flareup in virus cases, according to Jun Bei Liu, a portfolio manager at Tribeca Investment Partners.

“In the next 12 months things will get better. We have seen this playbook before across other economies,” she said on Bloomberg Television. “We’ll begin to see outperformance very soon in the next few quarters.”

Oil headed for a third weekly loss as the European Union weighs a higher-than-expected price cap on flows of Russian crude and slowdown concerns threaten the outlook for energy demand.

Gold was poised for a modest weekly gain.

Some of the main moves in markets:

Stocks

  • S&P 500 futures rose 0.2% as of 6:55 a.m. London time

  • Nasdaq 100 futures rose 0.4%.

  • The Hang Seng Index fell 0.4%

  • Japan’s 10-year yield was at 0.25%

  • Australia’s 10-year yield advanced three basis points to 3.57%
