By admin / May 31, 2016

All the Asian indices performed well today and mainly off the back of the rumors that China -Shares are to be included in the MSCI soon. These were only rumors but we did see a 3.3% rally on the beck of the story. Also, on the back of a better than expected Japan Industrial Output […]

Shanghai and HSI also closed better but only with marginal moves. Japanese government announced over the weekend that any rise in […]

A choppy session in Asia saw the Nikkei open strong but close almost unchanged while HSI and Shanghai spent the majority of the day negative only to close small positive. Focus remains on oil, currency as the JPY remains around the 110 handle, continued disappointing data and todays G7 meeting. China set the mid-point at […]

It was debated at length today whether the Nikkei leads JPY or the yen leads the stock market! Either way we saw cash equities lose 0.9% today whilst the Yen rallied 0.6% only to lose that after the cash close. In late US trading we are looking at 110 handle but the Nikkei futures have […]

You could say that Japan has had more than fair share of poor data lately but sadly it continued today after a larger than expected trade data and a further contraction in its (Manufacturing) Purchasing Managers Index. This resulted in an initial 2% decline in the Nikkei in the morning session but only to see a […]

The market seems happy that the JPY trades comfortable north of 110 as we saw a small 0.5% gain in the Nikkei today. Hang Seng performed better closing up over 1%. with Shanghai also closing near its highs. A quiet session to close the week but at least on a positive note. A quiet but […]

Interesting that both the Nikkei and Shanghai closed almost unchanged following a similar trading pattern today but the Hang Seng really could not even attempt break-even, closing down 0.6% on the day. The JPY closed above the bullish reversal but we have a large gap to wait for the weekly. In late US trading the […]

Japan’s GDP showing today finally provided signs of life when the expected number of 0.1% was put to shame with a 0.4% print. However, it was only enough to rescue the Nikkei from the selling but did help to provide the days highs. By close of business the index had drifted back only to close […]
