    Asian stocks declined with U.S. equity index futures as investors worried surging bond yields after the Federal Reserve’s latest comments on the economy will test equity valuations. The yen advanced for the first time in five days.

    Despite the Fed’s latest upbeat assessment on the world’s largest economy, investors chose to focus on the prospect the pace of interest rate increases will speed up. Futures on the S&P 500 Index slipped after a rally fizzled Wednesday following minutes from the Fed’s January meeting showing increasing confidence that economic growth will pick up steam despite its concerns around inflation. Stocks were lower in Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea. Equities in Shanghai rose after missing out on an Asian stock rally because of a week-long Chinese holiday.

    Asian stocks look set to close out a lackluster week on a positive note on Friday as investors continue to debate the outlook for central bank policy normalization and the impact of higher bond yields.

    The MSCI Asia Pacific Index rose as equities climbed in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Sydney and Seoul. The U.S. offered little fresh direction overnight, with the S&P 500 Index closing just in the green, after losing most gains for a fourth straight day in afternoon trading. The dollar, which has got some support this week from higher Treasury yields, dropped on Thursday and is little changed Friday. Ten-year U.S. yields remain near their highest since 2014

    Asian stocks rallied after a second session of gains in the U.S. signaled investor concerns about a potential trade war in wake of President Donald Trump’s proposed tariffs are waning. Treasuries ticked lower.

    Japan’s Topix index closed up 1.3 percent after advancing as much as 2 percent, and benchmarks from Hong Kong to Seoul clawed back losses incurred since Trump’s protectionist broadside on Thursday. Ten-year Treasury yields hovered around 2.89 percent, though that offered scant support for the dollar, which was little changed. German bund yields rose and the euro steadied.

    Asian equities declined with U.S. stock futures following the resignation of globalist White House economic adviser Gary Cohn. The yen and Treasuries climbed as trade-war concerns intensified.

    Stock indexes in Asia tumbled, then recovered for a time before moving lower again as investors mulled the implications of stronger influence for protectionists in the Trump administration. S&P 500 Index futures dropped over 1 percent. The yen and euro strengthened against the greenback and bond yields fell. The won rallied after North Korea indicated -- according to South Korea -- that it was open to giving up its nuclear weapons.

    Asian stocks rose and the yen slumped on news of an agreement for an unprecedented summit between the leaders of the U.S. and North Korea, defusing geopolitical concerns tied to the nuclear-armed dictatorship in northeast Asia.

    The MSCI Asia Pacific Index climbed, led by a jump in Korean stocks though gains pared as the session progressed. Equities also benefited from optimism that President Donald Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum were narrower than some had feared. The announcement at the White House that Trump has accepted an invitation to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, with the meeting coming by May, fed the risk-on sentiment. The yen fell the most in more than two weeks, even as the Bank of Japan stayed the course with its monetary stimulus on Friday.

    A sell-off in technology shares that began Monday in Asia and picked up pace in the U.S. began to ease Tuesday, as investors mull the potential for weaker earnings growth among companies that have led gains over the past year.


    Stocks came off their lows of the day in Tokyo, and were up in Seoul Tuesday afternoon, while China’s markets were little changed as that nation wrapped up an annual meeting of its legislature. Investors may be less willing to make take big positions ahead of the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting Wednesday, where focus will be on whether policy makers signal an acceleration in interest-rate hikes. Also on the horizon are potential tariff announcements by the Trump administration on China. The yen slipped, while Treasuries were little changed.

    Stock declines deepened globally on Friday, with European equities sliding to the lowest in more than a year and gauges tumbling across Asia as the negative news cycle for risk assets continued.

    China announced retaliation against U.S. tariffs and there was further turnover in the U.S. administration, compounding a selloff that started in technology shares and escalated when President Donald Trump stepped up his protectionist measures on Thursday. Government bonds climbed as investors sought safer assets, while traditional havens including gold and the yen jumped.

    U.S. 10-year yields fell below 2.75%; oil rose toward $65
    Asian stocks followed their U.S. counterparts higher on Friday, finishing the quarter on a positive note after waves of volatility shook investor confidence in the synchronous global expansion that proved so profitable last year.

    The dollar slipped in subdued trading, with much of Asia joining the U.S. and Europe in market closures Friday. Stocks in Tokyo and Seoul rose, while those in Shanghai were little changed. The S&P 500 Index closed higher Thursday and 10-year Treasury yields fell below 2.75 percent after data showed U.S. consumer spending lagged behind income growth for a second month in February.

    Equities higher in Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, South Korea
    Asian stocks built on this week’s advance after signs that trade tensions are easing boosted risk appetite. The dollar steadied and Treasury yields pared gains.

    Equities from Sydney to Tokyo advanced though were off the day’s highs, while a rally fizzled in Hong Kong and U.S. stock index futures slid. The S&P 500 Index closed higher as President Donald Trump directed officials to explore rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade deal he pulled out of shortly after taking office. Crude pared this week’s advance as investors assessed the likelihood of a U.S. military retaliation in Syria.

    Stocks rose in most Asian markets, extending the biggest weekly advance since February. The euro and pound headed higher as the U.S. dollar came under pressure from sliding Treasury yields.

    Equities climbed in Japan, Australia and Hong Kong, and slipped in Indonesia. Malaysia’s stocks erased earlier losses, while the ringgit performed better than anticipated as markets reopened following Wednesday’s unprecedented election result. European equity futures signaled a mixed open as U.S. contracts pointed to gains after stocks capped their best week in two months on Friday amid growing conviction that inflation will remain contained. Signs of easing trade tensions are also helping, with suppliers to China’s embattled ZTE Corp. rising.
