Asian Stocks Wilt With Tech Under Pressure Thanks To Wall Street

Asian Stocks Wilt With Tech Under Pressure Thanks To Wall Street

Talking Points

  • Asian stocks followed Friday's Nasdaq down as a new week got under way
  • Residual nerves following the UK’s fraught election probably didn’t help
  • And neither did the wait for this week’s US Federal Reserve monetary call

Asian stocks fell Monday, with tech heavyweights knocked by their US counterparts' Friday woes. A bit of caution has also set in ahead of this week’s monetary policy decision from the Federal Reserve, which is expected to include an interest-rate hike.

Technology sold off quite sharply on Wall Street at the end of last week on worries about Apple’s new iPhone and after a cautious report from Goldman Sachs on the sector. Sure enough the likes of Taiwan Semicon and Samsung were lower Monday. The Nikkei closed down 0.5%, with the Kospi off 1.1% overall. Mainland Chinese and Hong Kong stocks both slipped, but Australia’s ASX 200 missed out as it was closed for a holiday.

It was a light session for Asia/Pacific economic data. Everything of note came from Japan., but none of it moved the Yen. Machine orders came in way under expectations for April, but this is a notably volatile series. May’s corporate goods prices rose by less than the market had forecast they would.

In the currency market the British Pound steadied after last Friday’s sharp, election-related falls. The Conservative administration of Prime Minister Theresa May has returned to power. However, it has lost its parliamentary majority and must now govern -and negotiate Brexit- with the help of Northern Irish unionists.

Gold prices inched higher, after three days of losses as stocks made heavy weather of a new week. Crude oil prices tacked on a little over 20 cents/barrel for both the US benchmark and international Brent. The market was reportedly prepared to bet that prices may have formed a base despite endemic oversupply and a seemingly unstoppable rise in US production levels.

The European and North American day offers investors precious little although the US monthly budget statement is coming up.
