Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) Asian markets mixed
Asian markets were mixed Wednesday and the euro struggled to recover from recent selling pressure as a brewing spat between Italy and the European Union fans fears of another crisis in the eurozone.
While the China-US trade row simmers, the source of angst among dealers has moved to Rome after the populist government passed a purse-busting budget last week that drew a rebuke from Brussels and warnings to abide by EU rules on public spending.
Hong Kong added 0.4 percent after plunging more than two percent and Sydney put on 0.3 percent. Singapore gained 0.6 percent and Jakarta was up 0.4 percent but Wellington, Taipei and Manila were all down.
Shanghai and Seoul were closed for public holidays.
On currency markets the dollar held above 15,000 Indonesian rupiah after breaking the mark Tuesday for the first time since 1998 during the Asian financial crisis.
The rupiah has suffered, along with many other emerging market units, as rising US interest rates lead investors to withdraw in search of better returns, while a jump in oil prices has hit Indonesia’s current account — leading to concerns about its finances.
In a bid to support the local currency the government is considering measures to attract investment and help exporters.
