TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Asian shares extended their recovery into a fourth day on Wednesday, buoyed by strong U.S. earnings and expectations that Beijing will ramp up fiscal stimulus to cushion the impact of its worsening trade dispute with Washington.
MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan gained 0.3 percent, led by Taiwan, while Japan’s Nikkei ticked down 0.1 percent.
Bucking the trend were Chinese shares, which slipped more than 1 percent after the United States said it would begin collecting 25 percent tariffs on an additional $16 billion worth of Chinese goods this month, the second leg of its first China-targetted tariffs on $50 billion goods.
