#AsiaPacific#Australia#Japan #China#world#stocks

China’s A-share market will be closed from Thursday, 12 February through 17 February, and resume trading on 18 February 2021.

China stocks finished higher in the last trading session before the Lunar New Year holiday, with blue-chip stocks marking 13-yr highs + Wednesday as strong inflation data underscored a recovery in the world’s 2nd-largest economy.

The blue-chip CSI300 index rose 2.1% at 5,807.72, the highest since 17 October 2007, while the Shanghai Composite Index added 1.4% at 3,655.09.

For the holiday-shortened week, CSI300 climbed 5.9%, while SSEC added 4.5%.

Japanese stocks ended higher Wednesday after positive earnings from market giants Toyota and Honda highlighted the improving outlook for the global economy.

The Nikkei index ended up 0.19% at 29,562.93. The broader Topix rose 0.27% at 1,930.82.

Australian shares rose Wednesday, driven by a rally in tech stocks which hit a record high during the session, with strong domestic earnings boosting sentiment.

The S&P/ASX 200 index closed 0.52% higher and settled at 6,856.9. In New Zealand, the benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index fell 0.8% to 12,830.03.
