Asia markets up as dealers brush off Trump fear, eyes on bankers

SHARE:

HONG KONG -  Most Asian markets on Thursday brushed off a Wall Street retreat, with analysts saying a threatened government shut-down by Donald Trump was unlikely, while focus turns to a key central bankers' meeting.

In a firebrand speech to supporters the embattled US president warned he would bring an end to Federal business in a bid to push through his controversial Mexican border wall, while also threatening to tear up a trade agreement with Canada and Mexico.

The outburst fuelled concerns that the nascent administration is struggling to find consensus on Capitol Hill -- even with his own Republican party -- raising questions about his ability to push through promised tax cuts, deregulation and infrastructure spending.


It also led to a warning from Fitch that it would review its US sovereign rating if the government was shut down.

All three main indexes in New York ended in the red.

However, House Speaker Paul Ryan said there would not be any closure of government, while analysts also pointed out that such a crisis was unlikely and Trump was probably bluffing.

"It's Congress which will decide on the debt ceiling limit and avoid the shutdown -- not the president,? said AxiTrader chief market strategist Greg McKenna.

He was also confident Trump's economic agenda could be pushed through, adding: "It's likely the Congress will need to work out what it wants to do on tax cuts. I'm still expecting some progress there in the months ahead."

Asian markets mostly started in positive territory. Hong Kong rose 0.5 percent, a third-successive gain as traders returned to work after a typhoon hit the city Wednesday.

Sydney rose 0.2 percent, Singapore was 0.3 percent higher and Seoul put on 0.5 percent, while there were also gains in Taipei and Manila.

However, Tokyo eased 0.1 percent by the break on the back of a stronger yen, while Shanghai dipped 0.2 percent.

Attention is now on the Jackson Hole symposium in Wyoming, where the world's top bankers are gathering, with US Federal Reserve boss Janet Yellen and European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi on the list of priorities to watch.

With the US and eurozone economies both picking up, dealers are hoping for some pointers about the future of monetary policy.

The euro has rallied in recent weeks -- hitting a near eight-year low against sterling -- with the ECB expected at some point to start winding in its massive stimulus, while another round of upbeat economic data Wednesday ramped up those expectations.
