TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Asian stocks inched higher on Wednesday, with sentiment boosted by Wall Street’s rise and a record intraday high for the S&P 500 index, but political headlines in the U.S. and Australia and a retreat in Chinese markets darkened the mood.
Investors in the region took some comfort from hopes that the trade talks between the U.S. and China expected this week will ease trade tensions.
But Chinese investors sold shares across the board, sending the Shanghai Composite index (SSEC) 0.7 percent lower and the blue-chip CSI300 index (CSI300) down 0.6 percent, as economic concerns returned after the central bank said on Tuesday it would not resort to strong stimulus to support growth.
