    Asian equities took another leg higher after the S&P 500 Index rose to a record high and Treasuries tumbled, with less damage than originally feared from Hurricane Irma supporting the case for a gradually improving U.S. economy.


    Japan’s Topix index added to Monday’s rally, the biggest in three months, while South Korean and Australia equities climbed. European stock-index futures also pointed higher. The S&P 500 jumped the most since April to close at its first record in a month. Bloomberg’s dollar index steadied after recouping some of last week’s slump on Monday, though was pulling back in early European trading. Oil also held gains triggered by signs that predictions about Irma’s wrath were overdone.

    Financial markets are once again showing a short-lived reaction to a North Korean missile launch as investors become accustomed to a cycle of provocations followed by diplomatic censure and sanctions that fall short of shutting down the dictatorship.
    While South Korea’s Kospi index and U.S. stock futures dropped, equities in Tokyo traded sideways, showing a muted broader market reaction to the latest North Korean provocation. The yen flat-lined after an initial jump. Tensions had already resurfaced on Thursday, when the Nikkei reported that Pyongyang was preparing another missile launch. Ten-year Treasury yields were little changed after data showing U.S. inflation quickened, supporting an uptick in expectations for a Federal Reserve rate hike.

    Stocks advanced in Asia following a record-breaking Wall Street session, while the yen declined as havens retreated amid optimism the U.S. favors a peaceful resolution to North Korea’s nuclear threats.

    Futures on the S&P 500 Index rose with equities in Australia, South Korea and Hong Kong. Japanese markets are closed for a holiday. The S&P 500 climbed above 2,500 for the first time on Friday and the Dow Jones Industrial Average chalked another record close as investors shrugged off the latest North Korean missile test. The dollar was steady after declining on Friday when U.S. retail sales raised concerns about the strength of the economy.

    European and U.S. equity-index futures dropped with stocks in Asia as North Korea ratcheted up its threats against the U.S. by suggesting retaliation may include testing a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific. Safe havens including the yen and gold advanced.

    After a flat start to Friday’s Asia session, equities declined in most of the region. Hong Kong shares slid as S&P Global Ratings cut the city’s sovereign rating a day after it downgraded China. Bond yields retreated after Yonhap News cited a North Korean official saying the “highest level of hard-line” countermeasures against the U.S. could refer to a hydrogen-bomb in the Pacific Ocean. North Korea’s nuclear tests up to now have taken place on its own soil. The euro and Swiss franc advanced while the rout in base metals deepened.

    The fresh threats diverted attention from the monetary-policy decisions that have dominated markets’ focus this week. Investors are keeping an eye on speeches by Federal Reserve officials that may offer further clues to the central bank’s thinking after bets for higher rates by year-end were raised following this week’s policy meeting.

    Politics dominated trading on Monday, with the euro sliding as Germany’s election result foreshadowed potentially complex political-coalition building, while the yen declined ahead of a fresh stimulus package being unveiled by Japan’s prime minister.

    The euro was weaker against the dollar after Chancellor Angela Merkel won Germany’s election with a smaller share of the vote, with focus on a surprisingly strong result for a far-right party. Japanese equities bucked a trend of declines in Asian stocks thanks to optimism over a 2 trillion yen ($18 billion) stimulus from Abe ahead of an expected early election. A rout in Chinese property developers dragged on Hong Kong shares, while European equity futures tipped a weaker open.

    The euro extended a slide and stocks drifted lower as Spain’s hard-line response to the Catalonian secession threat fueled concern the crisis may intensify. The dollar gained amid speculation the next Federal Reserve chairman will be more hawkish, while Treasuries edged lower.

    The common currency declined for a fourth day, the longest losing streak since May. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index inched lower following mixed trading in Asian stocks earlier, after North Korea warned that a nuclear war could “break out any moment.” Gold declined and South Korea’s won led most emerging-market currencies lower. WTI crude resumed its push above $52 a barrel as tensions in Iraq lingered.

    Equities were mostly up as Japan’s benchmarks built on recent gains, with the Nikkei 225 Stock Average climbing for a record-breaking 16th consecutive session. The dollar arrested a two-day rally ahead of a European Central Bank meeting and news on the next head of the Federal Reserve.

    In Tokyo, the Nikkei finished at the highest since 1996 and the Topix index advanced for a 12th day, its longest streak since November, as investors looked past the weekend election that delivered Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a convincing victory to an earnings season that Goldman Sachs Group Inc. predicts will be better than expected. Shares were little changed elsewhere in Asia after U.S. stocks declined and a gauge of U.S. equity volatility climbed with market participants assessing the recent rally in global shares before a slew of earnings reports. European equity-index futures fell in early trading.

    Asian stocks were mixed as investors continued to digest earnings, while bond and currency markets awaited an announcement on who will helm the Federal Reserve.

    Equity benchmarks fluctuated in Japan, while Chinese shares fell, with the Shanghai Composite Index tumbling as much as 1.7 percent, the most this year on an intraday basis, as the nation’s bond slump deepened amid mounting deleveraging concerns. Hong Kong stocks pared gains. Profit reports due this week from some of the world’s largest companies may show if there’s enough juice in the earnings season to propel another leg higher for global shares. Speculation continues around who U.S. President Donald Trump will choose as the next Fed chair, with Governor Jerome Powell said to be the front-runner.

    Trump last week stoked the sense of drama surrounding his choice, tweeting a video teasing an announcement he said would come this week. The president is leaning toward appointing Powell, according to three people familiar with the matter.

    Equities in Asia were mixed as investors assessed the latest news on U.S. tax-cut plans and looked ahead to Friday’s American jobs report. The Australian dollar took a hit and bond yields headed lower after retail sales data raised doubts about the strength of the economy.

    Apple Inc. supported Nasdaq futures after its forecast for holiday sales topped estimates and suppliers of the iPhone maker climbed in Asia. The S&P 500 Index closed little changed as investors weighed the impact of House Republican leaders’ sweeping tax plan, which includes lowering the corporate tax rate to 20 percent from 35 percent. The dollar is headed for a weekly loss. Venezuela’s president said the nation will restructure its global debt as it struggles to meet its obligations.

    Equities in Asia put in a mixed start to the week as investors seek fresh catalysts after last week’s run to record highs. The British pound took a hit as pressure mounts on U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May after a raft of political scandals and scant progress on Brexit talks.

    Stock indexes declined in Tokyo, Sydney and Seoul. Hong Kong stocks were firmer after a reshuffle of the benchmark Hang Seng Index. The dollar advanced against all its major counterparts, with the pound falling the most. The Aussie dollar slipped amid fresh political turmoil that risked undermining confidence. Australian bond yields tracked an increase in the U.S. at the end of last week.

    Some of the euphoria came out of Bitcoin, with the cryptocurrency tumbling 11 percent on Monday, bringing its retreat from last week’s record high to about 26 percent in the wake of the cancellation of a technology upgrade.
