Global Market Report

Asia

China and Hong Kong markets closed marginally down on Tuesday, tracking weakness overnight on Wall Street. Japan’s Nikkei 225 crept higher after yesterday’s yen-related weakness.

News that US prosecutors are charging Chinese mobile firm Huawei with spying has disturbed the consensus that trade negotiations are moving in the right direction, particularly with the Chinese delegation visiting Washington this week. China has rejected the charges in language that echoes the height of the trade war last year, accusing the US of attempting to “kill” off Chinese businesses.

Perhaps the Huawei developments will hit Asia markets harder when they re-open on Wednesday, especially if US equities soften again. Chinese New Year is looming and traders are unlikely to want to hold open positions ahead of five working days off for China and three in Hong Kong.
