EQUITIES
EQUITIES: *correct* Switching S&P 500 & DJIA e-mini prices in earlier bullet.
- A bit of an indecisive Asia-Pac session for the space, with e-minis ticking
higher after Tuesday's declines, although the moves aren't particularly
sizeable.
- In local matters, Chinese equities have pulled back from their early highs,
with the country's major benchmarks much more subdued vs. what has been seen in
recent days. Margin usage for mainland stock trading has surged, touching levels
not seen since 2015.
- There was little in the way of any major stories to note in Asia-Pac hours,
outside of a BBG source piece which pointed to some of U.S. President Trump's
administration showing a willingness to try and undermine the USD/HKD peg.
However, the piece also suggested that there was plenty of pushback against the
idea, and that talks were at the preliminary stage and hadn't be elevated to
Trump himself.
- Nikkei 225 -0.2%, Hang Seng +0.5%, CSI 300 +0.8%, ASX 200 -0.7%.
- S&P 500 futures +7, DJIA futures +64, NASDAQ 100 futures +18.
