Steady gains emerge despite retreat in the US economic data
Asian markets ended mostly higher amid choppy trades with the select benchmark indices adding decent gains amid an overall thin activity. Weak US economic data failed to trigger a sell off and traders were mostly engaged in buying the index-linked counters ahead of the year-end. Nothing much was there on the economic front in Asia and the latest spate of sell off following the China rate hike over the weekends seemed to have wore off. In the overnight trades, the US markets ended slightly higher even as the weak economic data hurt the sentiments.
