Market Update- Asia-Pacific Market

The Asia-Pacific markets are mirroring the upward trends witnessed on Wall Street, specifically the tech-fueled rally led by Nvidia-powered technology stocks in the US on the prior Tuesday.

Of significant interest to investors is Australia’s inflation data for July, a crucial determinant for the Reserve Bank of Australia’s monetary policy decision scheduled for September 5th. The July data revealed a 4.9% increase in inflation, exhibiting a more subdued upswing compared to the 5.4% surge seen in June.

In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index experienced a minor dip of 0.11%, while mainland China’s benchmark CSI 300 index achieved a gain of 0.43%.

Overnight in the US, all major stock indexes exhibited gains. The Nasdaq Composite was particularly striking, with a surge of over 1%, attributed to renewed interest in technology stocks. The Nasdaq index itself saw substantial growth of 1.74%, the S&P 500 index climbed by 1.45% – marking its most robust performance since June 2nd, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose by 0.85%.
