Markets

Markets in Asia bounced yesterday after North Korea’s Kim Jong Un blinked first in his stand-off with US president Donald Trump and postponed his decision to fire missiles at Guam. Today, following a flat performance on Wall Street last night, they lacked direction. “The buying interest is still tentative with market players slow to return to the market, albeit the geopolitical concerns between the US and North Korea have abated temporarily,” said Malacca Securities in a note to clients this morning. Despite a rise in US dollar, the Nikkei traded flat while gains and losses at other regional bourses were capped. The ASX was last seen up 0.11%, and the Shanghai Composite declined 0.18% after the International Monetary Fund warned that China's credit growth is on a "dangerous trajectory".
