Asian Stocks Slip Back Despite Wall St Gains, Dollar Turns Up Again

Asian Stocks Slip Back Despite Wall St Gains, Dollar Turns Up Again

David Cottle, Analyst

ASIAN STOCKS TALKING POINTS:

  • Asian stocks were broadly lower, if generally not by much
  • The US Dollar put in more gains, with the Australian Dollar hit by central bank dovishness
  • Chinese retail and industrial data remained quite strong

Asian stocks backed off Tuesday- despite a quite-strong US lead -in a session very short of major economic news.

The Nikkei 225 was close to flat into its close, with the ASX 200 off 0.46%, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng was the biggest loser, down more than 1% with financials and tech returning some of their recent gains. There was no one big story behind stock moves in the region, however.

Turning to foreign exchange, the US Dollar inched broadly higher, as traders once again focused on likely interest-rate differentials across the developed-market currency matrix. The Federal Reserve remains pre-eminently the central bank likely to tighten policy the most in the near-to-medium term.

USD/JPY resumed its upward march, with bulls now seeming to target February’s highs above JPY110

US Dollar Vs Japanese Yen, Daily Chart

The Australian Dollar took an early knock from yet another dovish set of monetary policy meeting minutes from its Reserve Bank. Rate-setters could see no reason to raise interest rates from their record lows, and don’t expect to for a while.

Still, a reasonably upbeat set of industrial and retail data from China saw the Aussie perk up a bit, however, with the world’s second largest economy- and Australia's major export partner- clearly holding up quite well in the face of heightened trade tensions.

Gold prices slipped as the US Dollar firmed up while crude oil prices made little progress despite signs of a tighter market and US sanctions against Iran.

Still to come Monday are official UK labour market numbers, Eurozone Gross Domestic Product data and German’s ZEW business survey. Form the US will come retail sales, business inventories and the National Association of Home Builsers housing-market index.
