Australian shares advanced Monday, bouncing back from last wk’s losses, as Wall Street’s record finish Friday and positive domestic corporate earnings boosted investor sentiment.

The S&P/ASX 200 index was up 1% at 6,877.10 by 0030 GMT, its biggest intraday percentage rise since 5 February.

In New Zealand, the benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index slipped 1% to 12,469.12, its lowest since 23 November 2020.

Japan’s Nikkei share average rose above the 30,000 level for the 1st time in more than 30 yrs Monday, as it regained the ground lost during decades of economic stagnation.

The last time the Nikkei traded above 30,000 was 3 August 1990, a day after Iraq’s surprise invasion of Kuwait poured cold water on investors expecting the peace will prevail after the end of Cold War in late Y 1989

The break of 30,000 could open the way for test of all-time high of 38,957, touched at the end of Y 1989.
