S&P 500 set to snap five-day losing streak

NEW YORK, Dec 8 (Reuters) - World stocks rose and oil prices initially rebounded on Thursday on hopes that China's easing of its anti-COVID measures will help restore global supply chains and curb inflation.

China's shift in policy, announced on Wednesday, would allow the country's economy to pick up pace, state media CCTV quoted Premier Li Keqiang as saying on Thursday.

Wall Street rose on enthusiasm over a rally in U.S.-listed shares of Chinese companies, while copper climbed on hopes of increased demand from China, its biggest consumer. Goldman Sachs predicted prices for the metal could hit a record $11,000 a tonne in a year.

"The realization that China is going to be back on-line and producing product will help bring down inflation and that’s a good thing. If inflation can come down, the Fed can step aside and pause," Tim Ghriskey, chief investment strategist at Inverness Counsel in New York, said.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng .HSI rose more than 3% and the yuan traded near a 3-month high CNY= , though economists warned that any economic boost would take time to emerge and the relaxation in curbs could temporarily depress demand as infections surge.

The S&P 500 was on track to snap a five-day losing streak and the MSCI index was set to end four straight days of losses.

MSCI's gauge of stock performance across the globe .MIWD00000PUS gained 0.58%, while on Wall Street the Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI rose 0.32%, the S&P 500 .SPX advanced 0.60% and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC added 0.98%.

European shares fell for the fifth straight session, amid growing fears of an impending recession. The pan-European STOXX 600 index .STOXX lost 0.17%.

Markets are sending mixed messages with bonds "getting very bearish" and stock investors expecting an imminent pivot by the Federal Reserve, said Jimmy Chang, chief investment officer at the Rockefeller Global Family Office in New York.

Fed policy-makers meet next week and are likely to announce a 50-basis point hike in the U.S. central bank's lending rate, while indicating a slower pace of future rate hikes.

"The bulls can spin the narrative that both inflation expectations and real yields are coming down. They're both moving in the right direction and therefore that justifies the (recent) equity rally," Chang said.

"That's very short-sighted because what's awaiting the market is a recessionary environment and earnings estimates have to move lower," he said.

Crude prices seesawed as expectations a key Canada-to-U.S. pipeline will return to service after a leak and increase the supply of oil weighed on the market at a time economic slowdowns around the world have reduced energy demand.

U.S. crude futures CLc1 settled down 55 cents at $71.46 a barrel.

The dollar edged lower against the euro as investors weighed the possibility that the Fed's tight monetary policy could spark a recession. The euro EUR= rose 0.48% to $1.0555.

Treasury yields rose as investors awaited a report next week on inflation and the Fed meeting. Global bond yields, which move inversely to price, have tumbled in recent weeks on expectations of slower growth or recessions will curb the rise in rates.

The yield on 10-year Treasury notes US10YT=RR was up 8.5 basis points to 3.493%, while Germany's 10-year bond yield DE10YT=RR rose 2.6 basis points to 1.845%.

Gold prices edged higher as the dollar eased and investors positioned themselves ahead of the U.S. inflation data and the Fed's policy announcements.

U.S. gold futures GCv1 settled 0.2% higher at $1,801.50 an ounce.
