Overseas, Asian stocks are trading lower on Friday, as a new virus variant added to swirling concerns about future growth and higher US interest rates. The World Health Organization officials said Thursday they are monitoring a new variant with “a large number of mutations.” A special meeting is scheduled for Friday to discuss its implications for vaccines and treatments. The variant, called B.1.1.529, has been detected in South Africa in small numbers, according to the WHO.

Markets in the U.S. were closed on Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
