Asian markets have followed the tone set for on Wall Street towards the end of the trading session and moved lower. Initial optimism over the news that there has been a definite delay to the tariff increase was replaced by ambivalence as any deal could be some time away. As I write the Hang Seng is 178 points lower and the Nikkei225, 78 points lower.
Dollar weakness continues as it loses ground against all the major currencies, specifically the yen, euro and sterling.
DOW futures are again touching the. 26,000 mark after trading up to 26,230 intra day yesterday
