17-Dec-2018   15:30 Hrs IST Asian markets end mostly in green on Monday <p align="justify">Asian markets ended mostly in green on Monday, as investors picked up beaten-down shares after two weeks of losses, driven by concerns over trade and growth outlook. However, gains remained capped as traders remained on sidelines ahead of the US Federal Reserve's key policy meeting which is scheduled for December 18 and 19, with many expecting an increase in the benchmark interest rate by 25 bps to between 2.25 percent and 2.5 percent. Chinese shares ended slightly higher, as investors awaited cues from the closely watched annual Central Economic Work Conference later this week. Japanese shares ended notably higher despite lingering concerns over global growth.&nbsp;<p align="justify"><table width="100%" border="1" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1"><tbody><tr><td><p align="left"><strong>Asian</strong> <strong>Indices</strong></p></td><td><p align="left"><strong>Last Trade&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong></p></td><td><p align="left"><strong>Change in Points</strong></p></td><td><p align="left"><strong>Change in %</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p align="justify">Shanghai Composite</p></td><td><div><div><div>2,597.97</div></div></div></td><td><div>4.23</div></td><td><div>0.16</div></td></tr><tr><td><p align="justify">Hang Seng</p></td><td><div>26,087.98</div></td><td>-6.81</td><td><div>-0.03</div></td></tr><tr><td><p align="justify">Jakarta Composite</p></td><td><div><div>6,089.30</div></div></td><td><div>-80.54</div></td><td><div>-1.31</div></td></tr><tr><td><p align="justify">KLSE Composite</p></td><td><p align="justify">1,641.62</p></td><td><p align="justify">-20.34</p></td><td>-1.22</td></tr><tr><td><p align="justify">Nikkei 225</p></td><td><div><div>21,506.88</div></div></td><td><div><div>132.05</div></div></td><td><div>0.62</div></td></tr><tr><td><p align="justify">Straits Times</p></td><td><div><div>3,114.25</div></div></td><td><div><div>37.16</div></div></td><td><div>1.21</div></td></tr><tr><td><p align="justify">KOSPI&nbsp;Composite</p></td><td><div><div>2,071.09</div></div></td><td><div>1.71</div></td><td><div><div>0.08</div></div></td></tr><tr><td><p align="justify">Taiwan Weighted</p></td><td><div>9,787.53</div></td><td><div><div>13.37</div></div></td><td><div>0.14</div></td></tr></tbody></table></p><p align="justify"></p>
17-Dec-2018   10:21 Hrs IST Asian markets trade mostly higher in early deals on Monday <p align="justify">Most of the Asian market indices are trading higher in early deals on Monday on hopes that the United States Federal Reserve would re-evaluate its hawkish stance at a meeting later this week, following signs of slower global growth. The Japanese market is higher despite the sell off on Wall Street and a stronger yen. Nevertheless, gains are modest as investors turned cautious ahead of the US Federal Reserve's monetary policy decision due on Wednesday and the Bank of Japan's monetary policy decision due on Thursday. Among the other Asian markets, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, and Shanghai are in positive territory. Bucking the trend, Indonesia and Malaysia are lower. <p align="justify">Nikkei 225 added 162.31 points or 0.76% to 21,537.14, Hang Seng gained 7.60 points or 0.03% to 26,102.39, Straits Times improved 42.40 points or 1.38% to 3,119.49, Taiwan Weighted rose 14.44 points or 0.15% to 9,788.60, Shanghai Composite increased 0.24 points or 0.01% to 2,593.98, and KOSPI Shares up by 2.80 points or 0.14% to 2,072.18. <p align="justify">On the flip side, Jakarta Composite declined 64.37 points or 1.04% to 6,105.47, and FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI down by 4.45 points or 0.27% to 1,657.51.<p align="justify">&nbsp;</p>
