Japanese stocks rose to a near 11-month high on Thursday on a weaker yen and after Wall Street shares closed at record highs overnight, while the dollar’s bull run continued as upbeat economic data took US bond yields to multi-year highs. The dollar index was at 101.76, not far from 101.91 touched overnight, its highest since March 2003. The greenback saw support from an ongoing rise in U.S. Treasury yields. The two-year yield hit its highest levels since April 2010 on Wednesday as the market continued to bet that the Trump administration will increase debt-funded spending and spur higher growth and inflation. BSE Sensex advances 90 points to end at 26,051.81, NSE Nifty finishes at 8,033.30.
Such a view – which has also lifted expectations for more interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve next year – was reinforced on Wednesday by data that showed new orders of US manufactured capital goods rebounded in October. Consumer sentiment also jumped in November in the wake of Trump’s election. The dollar was up 0.1 per cent at 112.620 yen after touching an eight-month high of 112.980 overnight. It has gained roughly seven big figures against its Japanese counterpart since Trump’s victory earlier this month. The euro was steady at $1.0545 after touching $1.0526 overnight, its lowest since Dec. 4, 2015. The common currency has dropped nearly 4 percent so far in November. Japan’s Nikkei was up 1.1 percent, touching its highest level since early January. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan pulled back from a 12-day high scaled the previous day to dip 0.2 percent facing the prospect of higher U.S. interest rates diverting money from emerging markets. Australian shares shed. 0.1 percent and South Korea’s Kospi was also down 0.1 per cent. Crude oil prices recovered some of their losses. They fell on Wednesday with investors questioning whether OPEC can agree a production cut deep enough to reduce the global oil glut even as U.S. drilling rises. US crude was up 0.2 per cent at $48.04 a barrel after losing the same amount on Wednesday.
