Asian shares seek for momentum as S&P futures recover

SYDNEY- Asian share markets tried to find and gain momentum after earnings from early session declined and Wall Street futures soared far from its previous inactivity. The positive performance eased investors’ wariness brought by the coronavirus contagion.

Reports have it that a vaccine eased investors’ heavy sentiment. However, human tests of the medication may take a while to be executed, with target date still ambiguous and might not start until the end of April.

E-mini futures for the S&P 500 Esc1 retrieved 1% of the sharp 3.35% decline that the index .SPX went through during night session. South-Korea’s most damaged market .KS11 recovered 0.8% and aided MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares to trade above the line.

Japan’s Nikkei .N225 fell flat at 2.8% but is set to regain path. Shanghai blue chips .CSI300 retreated 0.7% but way firmer than its previous performance.

U.S. and European stock markets faced the sharpest decline since mid-part of 2016. Negative performance was brought by concerns that the novel coronavirus will soon be a global crisis capable of inflicting more damage to global supply chains and bringing worse economic problems.
