NEW YORK (Reuters) – A gauge of global stocks rose for an eighth straight day and benchmark government bond yields climbed on Friday after signs of progress in U.S.-China trade talks, as well as a solid U.S. retail sales report, allayed recession worries.

The euro gained against the dollar for a second day, although gains were pared after the release of the U.S. data, as the European Central Bank on Thursday exempted euro zone banks from a penalty charge, which analysts say will reduce the currency impact of new stimulus.

The dollar index fell 0.12%, with the euro up 0.13% to $1.1075.

Oil prices dipped, and both Brent and WTI posted weekly declines. U.S. crude settled down 0.44% at $54.85 per barrel and Brent was last at $60.22, down 0.26% on the day.
