Asian equities got some welcome relief on Wednesday after upbeat U.S. earnings reports drove a rebound on Wall Street and helped restore a little faith in emerging market stocks and currencies. Japan's Nikkei galloped out of the gates with a rise of 1.7 percent, but still has a long way to go to recoup the past week's losses. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan added 0.7 percent and South Korea 1.2 percent.
The dollar held declines and Treasuries were steady. Japanese, Chinese and Australian shares rose, helping lift the MSCI Asia Pacific Index of shares, which last week touched its lowest since May 2017.

The benchmark S&P 500 index has risen in seven of the past nine earnings seasons, climbing 1.7% on average during the four weeks after big banks kick off the reporting period, according to Dow Jones Market Data. In other words, it isn’t unusual for the equity market to go through a period of weakness before corporations report earnings.
