Market Talk- November 5, 2018

By admin / November 5, 2018

Asian markets were a little concerned of the afternoon sell-off the US markets experienced Friday and so were a little hesitant to find their own feet to open the week. Obviously, the media has worked everybody up into a frenzy ahead of Tuesdays US Midterm elections. In China President Xi Jin ping opened the China […]

If we had all gone home just after the US employment numbers, we would have all had a wonderful weekend and no-one would be any the wiser! However, as we know with markets, nothing is ever as it seems. Lets just skip to the finally half of the day just after the numbers from the […]

The start of a new month and a solid session across the globe. the Nikkei failed to join the party with a 1% decline today, but then the Yen has bounced a touch (0.3%) to balance some of that move. Interesting this is they claim tech took the markets lower in Japan whilst in the […]

A much welcomed rally the past couple of days to end the traditionally torrid month of October. A finally push today moved indices further away from their recent lows, but remain well down for this month. Optimism remains absent with Novembers planned US/China talks on trade still questionable as being included as part of the […]

A similar trading pattern was seen in both the Shanghai and the Nikkei overnight opening at the days lows and positive correction for the balance of the day. The headline that regulators would encourage share buy-backs and promote M+A activity helped restore some much needed confidence to the market. Core China rallied just over 1% […]

Much of the early Asian talk surrounded fears we would see a continuation of last weeks weakness, but from external rather than internally led . Despite the fact that Chinese indices are off 25% YTD, the weakness seen in Europe and the US is still impacting an already weak Chinese market. The late news of […]

Initial early gains were lost as the lack of momentum continues to weigh on sentiment. Markets are getting used to large intraday price swings and the consequence is the lack of conviction and follow-through. Core China markets have suffered more than most this year, but the 8% decline in the Shanghai in October alone just […]

Asia woke to the 600 point drop in the DOW and knew it was going to be tough going from the opening bell. The Nikkei probably took the brunt of the punishment falling almost 4%, but what was interesting was that the Yen failed to see the safe-haven bid. The Nikkei is now down over […]

A lack of direction resulted in a mixed session for Asia today. Probably a sigh of relief for many market participants, as they are still attempting to explain the past few days events! Although, we are seeing volatile stock markets, it is worth keeping an eye on the currency movements. Again today we see the […]

The weak US session did not help retain Asia’s confidence overnight and we see the result of nerves returning. Yesterday’s performers were todays victims, with most losses being centred round the Nikkei, Shanghai and the Hang Seng. The interesting thing for Japan is that although we saw a 2.65% decline in the Nikkei and we […]
