Equity markets in Asia started the new trading week inconsistently, as the Tokyo exchange declined -1.3% on a stronger yen, while other Asian
bourses traded slightly higher. It seems that investors remain cautious as the new U.S. president is taking office. Markets will weigh hopes for economic
impulses from fiscal policy against risks of trade disputes. Trump will meet Mexico’s president Nieto and British prime minister May this week.
Besides the new U.S. administration’s unpredictable policies, markets will also focus on the ongoing corporate earnings reporting season and the
Federal Reserve’s future monetary policy.
