Xiaomi Fuel Market Surge in Asia: Hong Kong Stocks Soar

Markets Update

Asian-Pacific markets experienced a surge, primarily led by Hong Kong stocks, as a notable increase in Xiaomi shares bolstered investor confidence. The Hang Seng index soared by 2.06% following a long weekend, with Xiaomi shares spiking nearly 15% after the company announced orders for its new electric vehicle. This surge in the market came amidst investors’ analysis of economic data from South Korea and Australia.

South Korea’s inflation rate for March remained steady at 3.1%, aligning with economists’ expectations. Conversely, Australia reported a contraction in factory activity, marking its swiftest decline since May 2020, with the purchasing managers’ index dropping to 47.3 in March from 47.8 in February.

While China’s CSI 300 index traded 0.25% lower amidst regional market movements, South Korea’s Kospi index saw a 0.12% increase, although the Kosdaq slid by 2.24% following the inflation data. The S&P/ASX 200 slipped by 0.14% to 7,886 in Australia, retracting from recent all-time highs. Japan’s Nikkei 225 experienced a slight rebound, gaining 0.06%, while the broader Topix index was down by 0.29%.

Later in the day, economists anticipated more vital PMI readings of 59.4 from India’s factory activity data. Overnight in the U.S., the three major indexes closed with mixed results. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield rose by 13 basis points to 4.319%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 0.6%, the S&P 500 dipped by 0.2%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite added 0.11%. Overall, market sentiment remained mixed amidst various economic indicators and regional developments.
