Reply To: Traders Market Weekly: Bonds, Bank Earnings and CPI Ahead


Equity indices in the Asia-Pacific region ended Thursday’s trade mostly higher.

Japan’s Nikkei: +1.7%,
Hong Kong’s Hang Seng: +0.2%,
China’s Shanghai Composite: CLOSED,
India’s Sensex: +0.6%,
South Korea’s Kospi: -0.1%,
Australia’s ASX All Ordinaries: +0.5%.

Japan’s Nikkei ended a five-day losing streak, bolstered by Wall Street’s rebound-minded angle and led by its automaker components.
A 30-yr bond auction in Japan, however, did not go as well. It was met with lower demand, which sent yields close to levels last seen in 2013.
