Asian-Pacific Market Start Week on a High Note

Asian-Pacific market

Explore Asian-Pacific market trends, China’s steady lending rates, and global indices’ positive momentum in this week’s financial update.

Asian-Pacific markets kicked off the week positively, rebounding from the previous session’s declines in significant exchanges. China opted to maintain its benchmark lending rates, with the one-year loan prime rate at 3.45% and the five-year benchmark loan rate at 4.2%.

Asian-Pacific Market Start Week on a High Note

The Nikkei 225 initially reached a 33-year high in Japan but faced challenges sustaining this peak, ultimately dipping by 0.64%. Simultaneously, the Topix index saw a decline of 0.31%, and attention shifted to Japan’s upcoming October inflation figures, scheduled for release on Friday.

Hong Kong’s stock market experienced a setback, driven by a drop in Alibaba’s shares following the e-commerce giant’s announcement of halting the complete spinoff of its cloud group. Despite this, the Hang Seng index rose by 1.7%, while China’s CSI 300 fell by 0.23%.

South Korea’s Kospi recorded a rise of approximately 0.75%, and the smaller-cap Kosdaq surged by 1.42%. Meanwhile, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 index gained 0.13%.

On a global scale, major US indices celebrated their third consecutive positive week, with the S&P 500 advancing by 2.2%, the Nasdaq surging approximately 2.4%, and the Dow closing the week with a 1.9% gain. This three-week winning streak is a significant achievement, particularly for the Dow and S&P 500, breaking their bars from July to July and the Nasdaq since June.

Looking into the future, upcoming events on the agenda comprise the unveiling of the USD CB Leading Index m/m at 3:00 PM GMT, the AUD CB Leading Index m/m at 3:30 PM GMT, and a speech by GBP BOE Gov Bailey scheduled for 6:45 PM GMT.
