1.9%. The state owned Securities News has suggested that large state owned funds
were actively purchasing billions worth of shares on Monday, which has supported
the space today.
- Elsewhere, the Nikkei 225 finished the morning session a touch lower,
recouping most of the early session losses, with health care names outperforming
while consumer staples weighed.

the charge, while utilities underperformed.

& questionable earnings reports (including heavyweight BHP Billiton).
