    Global stocks rally in big rebound, safe-havens lose luster

    Global equity markets rebounded in a broad rally on Tuesday and some safe-haven assets eased as investors took a less pessimistic view of the potential economic fallout from China's coronavirus outbreak.

    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' ex-wife, MacKenzie Bezos, has divested herself of about $400 million worth of the Amazon stock she received as part of the couple's divorce settlement — potentially providing the wherewithal for the charitable activities she's planning.
