Reply To: Traders Market Weekly: Santa Claus Came to Town


Equity indices in the Asia-Pacific region were mixed on Thursday, although Japan’s Nikkei (-1.6%) was a notable underperformer.

Shares of heavyweight component Toyota Motor fell sharply on news the auto maker recalled nearly 1 million Toyota and Lexus vehicle in the U.S. for a safety issue. A stronger yen and some general profit-taking activity contributed to the Nikkei’s weakness.
