Stock markets in the region were mixed on Thursday despite a modest move higher in US stocks overnight. While still preoccupied by North Korea, Japanese investors were in relatively upbeat mood, sending the Nikkei and Topix indices higher.

Nevertheless, Japan’s stock markets are lower than at the start of this week. Markets in mainland China and Hong Kong were lower on the day as investors weighed up the latest diplomatic moves between China and the US over North Korea.


The big event on Thursday in Europe is the European Central Bank’s announcement on interest rates and quantitative easing, followed by the press conference in which ECB president Mario Draghi will outline his views on Eurozone inflation, jobs and growth. Investors expect no change to both Bank rate and asset purchases, although there is a slim chance that the ECB will start to wind down its €60 billion QE programme.
