Asian Markets News Review Today:
Asian Markets performed well today and finished the most recent trading session in positive territory across the board. Asian markets gained traction last session due, in part, to the noteworthy increases made by the Dow Jones Industrial Average this week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average moved beyond its October 2007 high to close at a fresh all time high this week. Service sector data was better than expected in the U.S this week.
In addition, private sector employment data posted early this morning in the U.S. and was better than expected.
The positive economic data in the U.S pushed international composites higher last session. The Hang Seng, Nikkei 225, and the Shanghai Composite, all closed the last full trading session above the break-even mark.
