Asia gapped open higher on continued strong sentiment brought forward from Abe’s election landslide victory weekend. The Nikkei saw a 1.4% rally at the open but was subject to profit taking as the day wore on. The JPY rejected the 105 handle and is seen in late US trading back towards the 104.30 level having […]

Having seen new highs made in the US markets overnight, Asia responded with its own rally coupled with an “Abeonomics” boost. With renewed support, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to follow through with additional measures that many claim are required to help an aligning stock market, even if that means a weakening currency. […]

After Abe’s comment this was an awesome day for the Nikkei and laid the ground for Asia markets combined. A 4% rally for Japan with a 1.5% improvement for the Shanghai whilst Hang Seng made just a marginal improvement. The Upper House elections saw Japan’s Abe party secure a landslide victory in the Sunday election which promised […]

The continued decline in the price of oil, US markets having turned mid-session and you have the makings of confidence deficiency – which is exactly what we saw for Asia. By the open dealers were looking for the bid and that never really changed. Nervousness for the US data so it was absolute certainty that […]

A quiet day in Asia is a bit of a relief after all the recent fun and games and that is what we saw today with global markets having behaved themselves and a FED that was more than compensated for, there was really not much to play on and so we saw one of the […]

Not a great session for Japan or the Hang Seng with both down around 1.5% a piece. Shanghai managed a better performance closing marginally higher having spent all day meandering around unchanged. The main talking point in Asia was again BREXIT and the GBP under performance so far. Setting another 31 year low (1.2795) concerns […]

Confidence remains the key in Asia and that is what we remain in search of this evening as we watch global equity markets depreciate. In Asia China was in better shape having seen better than expected Service sector growth resulting in a 0.6% gain. This was only for the first half of the day as […]

Despite the election uncertainty resulting from the weekend, the ASX (Australian Stock Exchange) closed better; as did the currency. ASX closed up 0.65%, having suffered an opening wobble but the AUD will be eagerly watched at the RBA meeting – was last seen up 0.6% in late European trading. The Nikkei opened lower but managed a […]

The first day of the second half of 2016 and it starts with a whimper. Yes, The Nikkei and Shanghai were marginally better bid (China PMI marginally lower 50 v’s 50.1 previously) but with the Hang Seng closed there was really not that much to write home about. The Japanese data was a little better and we saw a […]

With the exception of the firmer Hang Seng (+1.75%), core Asia was pretty much mooted. The big news today was BREXIT again when Boris Johnson withdrew his name for potential Conservative Leader. This comes on the tail of Michael Gove declaring his willingness to throw his hat in the ring. Markets were firmer (around +0.5%) […]
