Japanese shares rose modestly on Tuesday, tracking a pickup in Wall Street futures as early U.S. Democratic primary results dribbled in, although the gains were limited by broader risk aversion as a Federal Reserve rate cut failed to soothe nerves. Supporting U.S. stock futures was a resurgent former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden in the Democrats' "Super Tuesday" primaries over chief rival Senator Bernie Sanders, who is seen as being tougher on big business.
Japanese shares bounced back modestly on Wednesday, partially clawing back hefty losses from the previous two sessions, although gains were limited by worries over the fast-spreading coronavirus from China. Traders called it a mere technical rebound, noting the lingering concerns about the virus outbreak and its broader economic and market impact.
Japanese shares rose on Thursday, with the Tokyo Stock Exchange's Topix index hitting a four-month high, as signs of a thaw in U.S.-China trade frictions lift cyclical stocks such as machine makers. U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday Washington has agreed to delay increasing tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports by two weeks after Beijing said it would exempt 16 types of U.S. products from import tariffs.
No one can be naive enough to think this will end anytime soon," said Norihiro Fujito, chief investment strategist at Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley (MUMSS). China on Friday said it would impose tariffs on about $75 billion in imports from the United States including some agricultural products, crude oil and small aircraft. Hours later, U.S. President Donald Trump heaped an additional 5% duty on some $550 billion in targeted Chinese goods in the latest tit-for-tat escalation between the world's largest economies.
Japan's machinery orders unexpectedly rose for a third straight month in April, signalling solid business investment, though analysts expect an intensifying Sino-U.S. trade war and global slowdown to hurt capital spending plans in the coming quarters. Cabinet Office data released on Wednesday showed core machinery orders, a highly volatile data series regarded as an indicator of capital spending in the coming six to nine months, increased 5.2% in April from the previous month.
Japan's Nikkei rose on Friday as reports that Washington is considering a delay in tariffs on Mexican imports eased wider concerns about weakening global trade. Investor sentiment recovered slightly after Mexican and U.S. officials held a second day of talks on trade and migration on Thursday, amid reports President Donald Trump might delay the imposition of tariffs that are due on Monday. On a trade front, we still don't know the outcome for the U.S.-Mexican tariff deal, but positive reports support the mood," said Isao Kubo, equity strategist at Nissay Asset Management.
