Pt Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Draghi Mengecewakan, Bursa Asia Dibuka Turun; Saham Jepang Naik

Pt Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Bursa saham Asia dibuka melemah karena para investor menimbang prospek kebijakan moneter di AS dan Jepang setelah Bank Sentral Eropa mengecilkan perlunya stimulus ekonomi tambahan. Saham Tokyo menguat setelah yen jatuh.

Indeks MSCI Asia Pacific turun 0,5 persen menjadi 141,30 pada pukul 09:11 pagi di Tokyo. MSCI menuju kenaikan 2,8 persen minggu ini, keuntungan terbesar dalam sebulan, karena pedagang memangkas spekulasi bahwa Federal Reserve akan menaikkan suku bunga pada pertemuan bulan September sementara spekulasi berpusar atas apakah Bank of Japan akan menambah rekor stimulus yang sudah ada. Saham-saham di AS dan Eropa jatuh setelah Ketua ECB Mario Draghi mengecilkan prospek peningkatan pembelian aset pada saat keprihatinan atas dampak Brexit di kawasan Eropa memuncak.

Indeks Stoxx 600 Eropa turun 0,3 persen pada Kamis kemarin, sementara Indeks S&P 500 AS kehilangan 0,2 persen, melemah dari rekor tertinggi. Draghi mengatakan ECB tidak membahas perpanjangan program pembelian obligasi pada pertemuan terbarunya, di mana suku bunga yang tersisa tidak berubah. Keputusan Eropa muncul sebelum pertemuan BOJ yang diawasi dengan ketat bulan ini, di mana dewan akan mengumumkan hasil kajian komprehensif dari kebijakan moneter dan memutuskan apakah harus memperluas pelonggaran.

Indeks Topix Jepang naik 0,3 persen karena yen melemah 0,7 persen terhadap dolar pada hari Kamis dan diperdagangkan di level 102,33 pada hari Jumat. Indeks Kospi Korea Selatan turun 0,8 persen menjelang keputusan bank sentral terkait tingkat suku bunga. Indeks S&P/NZX 50 Selandia Baru turun 0,2 persen.

Asian stocks fell as investors weighed the outlook for monetary policy in the U.S. and Japan after the European Central Bank downplayed the need for more economic stimulus. Shares in Tokyo rose after the yen fell.

The MSCI Asia Pacific Index dropped 0.5 percent to 141.30 as of 9:11 a.m. in Tokyo. The measure is heading for a 2.8 percent advance this week, the biggest such gain in a month, as traders pared bets the Federal Reserve will raise rates at its September meeting while speculation swirled over whether the Bank of Japan will add to already record stimulus. Shares in the U.S. and Europe fell after ECB chief Mario Draghi played down the prospect of an increase in asset purchases at a time when concern over the impact of Brexit on the euro area is mounting.

Europe�s Stoxx 600 index slid 0.3 percent on Thursday while the U.S. S&P 500 Index lost 0.2 percent, retreating from a record high. Draghi said the ECB didn�t discuss an extension to its bond-buying program at its latest meeting, where interest rates were left unchanged. The European decision comes before this month�s closely watched BOJ meeting, at which the board will announce the results of a comprehensive review of monetary policy and decide whether it should expand easing.

Japan�s Topix index climbed 0.3 percent as the yen slid 0.7 percent against the dollar on Thursday and traded at 102.33 on Friday. South Korea�s Kospi index lost 0.8 percent ahead of the central bank decision on interest rates. New Zealand�s S&P/NZX 50 Index declined 0.2 percent. Australia�s S&P/ASX 200 Index declined 0.8 percent. Markets in China and Hong Kong have yet to start trading.
