Mixed markets in Asia amid coronavirus concerns still
Japanese stocks are mostly taking their cue from Wall Street after the overnight surge higher, brushing aside fears surrounding the coronavirus outbreak situation.
The WHO officially declared the outbreak a global emergency but limited their warning by saying that “there is no reason for measures that unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade” to/with China for now.
The Hang Seng index is down by 0.4% with some softer tones also observed in other regional stocks. US futures are keeping more calm though, staying near flat levels currently.
As such, USD/JPY is still keeping a tad higher around 109.05 ahead of European trading.
