Although we await US President Trump’s Iran Nuclear address later this afternoon, Asian markets still closed better bid across the boards. Most of this was associated to the regional currency declines, but we did see some markets that performed. In Hong Kong the Hang Seng opened over 1% higher and continued to make progress for […]

Shanghai was the star performer today, gaining 1.5% as moves to open the domestic market continues to progress. New rules that will allow overseas listed companies to list domestically is a strong signal that China is open (and encouraged) for business. News that the regulator is to issue draft rules surrounding the issuance of CDR’s […]

Pretty much a waiting game for both Asia and Europe ahead of the non-farm payrolls report. The US – China trade talks were on everyone’s mind, but statements and comments were few and far between and so we closed Asia weaker more on concerns of what an assumed conclusion. The Hang Seng lost 1.3 as […]

Obviously the focus of attention was always going to be on the US/China trade talks and so most of Asia closed mixed. Japan is still on holidays and not expected to reopen until Monday. Fears were certainly evident in Hong Kong, where the Hang Seng lost 1.3% today with losses from Energy, property, trade and […]

The Nikkei traded nervously today ahead of the FED and US NFP’s, but knowing it is closed the rest of the week (Golden Week holidays). Some of the exporters did manage to edge ahead but gains were very limited. The overall trend appeared heavy all be it lethargic, but we are watching the Yen trade […]

More national holidays today (India, China, Hong Kong, Singapore) which makes volume trades more difficult or even held until volume returns. The Nikkei climbed from a weak morning session to make just a modest (+0.2%) return. It is Golden Week in Japan and so will be closed Thursday and Friday also. The Yen, although light […]

On the final day in April, we have seen shares rally across the board and not just in Asia. Two major markets were closed today for national holidays and so volumes are traditionally quiet on these occasions. However, we saw a stunning +1.74% return for the Hang Seng as a broad based rally consumed much […]

A steady day all-round today for Asia following Thursday healthy US session. The Hang Seng bounced back the 1% that it lost yesterday, although still has a little work to do. The Tech and Energy sectors have eventually found buyers and encouragingly they finished with a strong bid. Shanghai added 0.23% led by healthcare but, […]

It was China’s market that took the hit today with both mainland Shanghai and the Hang Seng declining over 1%. It was tech that lead sentiment lower again today following rumours of US probing Huawei Technologies and that spread to the sector. These concerns appeared to be confined to China, although the financials and property […]

When you consider the DOW was off 550 points you would have expected significantly more weakness in Asia, but that was not to be! With 15mins trading time to go we saw the DOW bounce 10 points a minute to close off 400 and that almost gives you the kind of liquidity the markets are […]
