Markets Have Huge Session In Asia

Markets aren’t really doing much of anything in Europe. But it was a huge session in Asia.

Check out some of these numbers showing how strong Asian markets did:

  • Nikkei: +2.48%
  • Shanghai: 3.39%
  • Indonesia: +2.05%
  • Jakarta +2.05%

China may have been a main driver of the action, with news over the weekend that its trade numbers were better than expected.

Astoundingly, while the world was obsessing over a Chinese “hard landing” it increasingly looks like China was the one big emerging market to recover from its woes rather quickly.
