Asian stocks looked set for a mixed start as investors mulled reports that China’s coronavirus had migrated to the U.S. Treasuries climbed and the yen extended gains. Futures dipped in Japan, pointed higher in Hong Kong and were little changed in Australia. U.S. and European shares saw modest losses. Luxury stocks headed for their biggest drop since October on worries the virus will disrupt spending during a key Chinese holiday period. Industrial and consumer shares were among the worst performers as the S&P 500 Index fell from a record high, and the yuan weakened. Elsewhere, Germany’s DAX Index briefly surpassed the peak reached two years ago. West Texas crude held around $58 a barrel as ample global supplies offset the loss of exports from Libya.
