Nikkei, Shanghai edge higher while Sensex, Hang Seng finish lower
Stock markets in Asian region managed a mixed closing on Monday, 21 December 2009, despite positive cues from Wall Street on Friday as well as higher commodity prices. The mood is cautious ahead of the year-end vacation. Though some of the markets in the region have drifted lower after a steady start, the fall is not much pronounced.
On Wall Street, stocks closed slightly higher Friday, as a strong tech sector helped the major averages overcome a midday swoon caused by a strengthening dollar. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 21 points, or 0.2%, to 10,329. The S&P 500 improved by 6 points, or 0.6%, at 1102, while the Nasdaq added 32 points, or 1.5%, at 2212.
In the commodity market, crude oil traded near $73 a barrel in New York after rising last week amid optimism demand will increase as the global economy recovers from its worst recession since World War II.
Crude oil for January delivery was at $73.43 a barrel, up 7 cents, in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 3:13 p.m. Singapore time. The contract, which expires today, rose 1% to $73.36 on 18 December 2009, the highest settlement since 7 December 2009.
Brent crude oil for February settlement rose as much as 57 cents, or 0.8%, to $74.32 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. The contract was at $74.09 a barrel at 3:23 p.m. Singapore time.
Gold, little changed in London, may decline as gains in the value of the dollar curb demand for the metal as an alternative investment. Gold for immediate delivery fell $1.28, or 0.1%, to $1,111.92 an ounce at 9:14 a.m. local time. Bullion futures for February delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange’s Comex unit added 0.1% to $1,112.50 an ounce.
In the currency market, the movement was staying in tight range as the week starts.
The Japanese yen softened against the major currencies today as currency players anticipated more short covering in the greenback in a holiday-shortened week. Japan’s currency was quoted at 90.41 yen per dollar, virtually unchanged from the open.
The Hong Kong dollar was trading at HK$ 7.7539 against the dollar. Actually the Hong Kong dollar is pegged at HK$ 7.8 to the U.S. dollar but can trade between HK$ 7.75 and HK$7.85 to the U.S. dollar.
In Sydney trade, the Australian dollar remained on the defensive as its US counterpart maintained its recent turnaround and investors shied away from risk so close to the end of the year. At the local close, the dollar was trading at $US0.8857 from $US0.8905 in New York late Friday, with a lack of liquidity keeping it in a tight $US0.8855 to $US0.8915 range.
In Wellington trade, the New Zealand dollar was little changed ahead of the release of key economic data this week prior to the Christmas holiday break. The NZ dollar was US71.04c at 5pm from US71.16c on Friday, having dropped to a week-low against early on Saturday around US70.65c.
