Markets

Markets in Asia continued their rally today, though gains were capped by a poor performance on Wall Street last night and threats of possible US government shutdown. “A predictable air of caution has engulfed global equity markets as we approach the final bell for US budget showdown. But in the bigger scheme of things this case of hic-ups is likely to pass as quickly as it arrived,” said Stephen Innes, head of trading APAC at online multi-asset trader OANDA in Singapore. Attention instead was on yesterday’s Q4 growth figures from China yesterday which beat market expectations. “Almost two-thirds of growth now comes from consumption, which has replaced investment as the biggest growth driver for China,” explained Wei Li, senior economist, China, for Standard Chartered Bank. Even though most economists believe that a slowing housing market and tighter financial conditions are likely to weigh on growth in 2018, traders grabbed the good news and the Shanghai Composite was last seen up almost 0.40%. Elsewhere the Nikkei traded very slightly higher as the US dollar remained flat. A pullback in the price of oil saw the commodity-heavy ASX trade down 0.15%.
