Asian shares gain on positive Chinese trade data, virus concerns still lurk

Asian stocks slightly gained on Tuesday after China’s trade data revealed a better-than-expected result. The upbeat performance could also be attributed from various countries’ decision of reopening their economy by easing some lockdown restrictions.  

Chinese shares traded in green on Tuesday with the blue-chip index.CSI300 gaining 0.9%. Australian shares advanced with 1.1% while the Japanese benchmark index Nikkei .N225 recorded a 2.2% increase. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng.HSI increased by 0.6% while the S&P 500 E Mini-futures rose 1.2%.

Analysts said some of the tail risks that posed a much sharper downturn were starting to disappear. This is mainly from a slowdown of new coronavirus diagnosis and from the enforcement that major economies get from worldwide monetary easing and fiscal stimulus.

Though markets were seen to be recovering, economists believe that it is still early to say that the worst was over for financial markets.
