Asia shares opened slightly lower today and as expected, especially after US President Donald Trump’s comments regarding the country’s surge in new coronavirus cases, which outweighed the impact of a slight rally on Wall Street. Conversely, Shanghai Comp (+1.2%) outperformed following yesterday’s pause, whilst Hang Seng (closing stocks equalled opening price, no changes) took a breather but remained in positive territory as oil giants kept the index afloat
ASX 200 (-1.6%) lagged as cases stayed on an upward trajectory in Australia’s second largest state of Victoria, although miners saw a boost from the rally in precious metals. Nikkei 225 (-0.5%) failed to nurse opening losses as several large-cap stocks remained in the red, whilst recent JPY strength further weighed on exporters in the index.
Stock futures creeped lower in Europe and shares across Asia were mixed today amid uncertainty over the timing of a fresh U.S. stimulus program. The USD extended losses, while gold soared above $1,850 an ounce. The top three indices traded to the downside, in the latter part of the session as the US stimulus bill hit a bump amid differences over the size of the package and whether payroll tax cuts should be included.
As for Oil prices today, it depreciated as industry data showed a bigger-than-expected inventory build in the United States where coronavirus cases continue to rise, potentially further damaging demand in the world’s biggest oil consumer.
In the currency market, the USD harboured losses against most currencies, weakened by concerns over struggles by Republicans and Democrats in reaching consensus on the next round of US economic stimulus measures.
