Asian equities remain buoyant in trading today, as Wall Street ended yesterday with record closes once again. I guess positive sentiment feeds into more positive sentiment, and the loop continues. But what's new with equities, am I right?

Meanwhile, in other Asia Pacific equity markets:

  • Hang Seng -0.04%
  • Shanghai Composite +0.14%
  • CSI 300 +0.20%
  • Kospi +1.14%
  • ASX 200 +0.74% (closes at 6,122.30)

The Hang Seng index is the only drag, as Tencent Holdings is down on the day by 0.14%. It accounts for ~10% weightage of the index. Key sectors including financials are also down on the day for the Hang Seng.
