News & Data Highlights

In economic news, the US Prelim GDP q/q exceeded expectations at 5.2%, providing insights into the robustness of the American economy.

These indicators contribute to the intricate web of factors influencing global markets.

Market Updates

South Korea witnessed a surge in its stock market following the central bank’s decision to maintain lending rates for the seventh consecutive time. On the contrary, China and Hong Kong faced market declines due to a contraction in China’s manufacturing activity.

As analysts scrutinized economic indicators, the Asia-Pacific region witnessed mixed market trends.

China reported a consecutive decline in factory activity and a yearly low in non-manufacturing activity. South Korea surprised markets with a 3.5% drop in industrial output, contradicting economist predictions. Meanwhile, Japan’s Nikkei 225 rebounded, and Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 marked three consecutive days of gains.

The global economic landscape remains dynamic with upcoming events, including the CAD GDP m/m, USD Core PCE Price Index m/m, USD Unemployment Claims, USD Chicago PMI, USD Pending Home Sales m/m, and USD Natural Gas Storage. These events, expected to influence market sentiments more profoundly, will provide valuable insights into the trajectory of vital economies.
