Asian Markets Overview of April 9, 2010: Icon Energy's (ASX:ICN) A$32B China Deal Surprised the Market
US stocks rose overnight as investors were encouraged by the stronger than expected retail sales figures, which also eased some concerns over the reporting season to kick off next week. Most Asian markets yesterday fell after the negative lead from Wall Street. Japan's Nikkei 225 dropped 1.1 per cent after weak machinery orders data. China's Shanghai Composite lost 0.94 per cent while Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index declined 0.3 per cent. But South Korea's Kospi was 0.4 per cent higher as strong foreign buying came in late trade.
Wall Street rose overnight as investors were expecting improvements in fourth-quarter earnings results. US industrial shares lifted the Dow and the S&P 500 to new 15-month highs after the upbeat Chinese economic data. The US dollar dropped 0.5 percent against a basket of currencies.
Asian stock markets were broadly lower Friday following the weakness in Wall Street. Chinese shares also fell on profit taking, but airline equities rose across the board on a new pricing mechanism of fuel surcharge to take effect this weekend.
