Market Watch: Wall Street Surge After Inflation Data

Markets Update

The Asian-Pacific markets responded with mixed sentiments today following a notable surge in Wall Street, propelled by U.S. inflation data that closely matched economists’ predictions. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a 0.4% monthly increase and a 3.2% year-over-year rise in February’s U.S. consumer price index.

In Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 continued its upward trajectory, closing the day 0.22% higher at 7,729.40, building on previous session gains. However, Japan’s Nikkei 225 experienced a reversal, initially rising before ultimately declining by 0.13%, and the Topix also slipped by 0.16% after early-session gains.

South Korea’s Kospi witnessed a modest increase of 0.27%, supported by a decrease in the February unemployment rate to 2.6%. Conversely, the Kosdaq, representing small-cap stocks, dipped by 0.26%, potentially signaling an end to its recent winning streak.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index extended its gains by 0.3%, adding to a 3% surge from the previous day, while mainland China’s CSI 300 dropped by 0.58%.

All three major indexes recorded gains after the inflation data release in the United States. The S&P500 soared to a new record high of 5,175.27, marking a 1.12% increase. The Nasdaq Composite experienced a more significant surge of 1.54%, fueled by renewed interest in tech stocks. This led to substantial gains in shares of Nvidia and Oracle. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed with a 0.61% gain.
