Asia-Pacific Markets Update

Amid China’s recent decision to lower the one-year loan prime rate (LPR) while maintaining stability in the five-year rate, Asian markets showcased a variety of outcomes. Ten basis points lowered the one-year LPR to 3.45%, while the five-year LPR remained steady at 4.2%, impacting mortgage rates.

Anticipating rate cuts in both categories, market analysts surveyed by Reuters were surprised by China’s unexpected reduction in the medium-term lending facility rate the previous week. Consequently, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index experienced a decline of 1.42%, mirrored by mainland China’s CSI 300, which saw a 0.68% drop.

However, some markets fared well in the midst of these changes. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 declined by 0.46%, reaching its lowest point since July 11 at 7,115.5. In contrast, Japan’s Nikkei 225 rebounded, closing with a 0.29% gain at 31,565.64, complemented by a 0.24% rise in the Topix index, which ended at 2,241.49. South Korea’s Kospi snapped a six-day losing streak with a 0.17% increase to reach 2,508.8, while the Kosdaq surged by 1.3%, closing at 888.71.

US Markets Recap

The major indices in the United States displayed mixed results on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average edged up by 0.07%, while the S&P 500 experienced a marginal decline of 0.01%, and the Nasdaq Composite slipped by 0.2%. This marked the third consecutive week of losses for the S&P and Nasdaq, a trend not observed since February and December.
