On Thursday, Nikkei 225 index set a new all-time high in over 30 years after reaching 39,098.68. Today, Nikkei 225 went up by 0.4% closing at 39,233.71. Trading was closed on Friday due to a public holiday in Tokyo.

By the looks of it, Nikkei hitting new ATH for 2 times in a row is an indication that the 40,000 mark is soon to be anticipated. Nikkei 225 index went up by more than 28% throughout last year.

According to Stephen Innes from SPI Asset Management, since yen is still weak, it’s becoming a factor for attracting foreign investors in investing in Japanese stocks. He adde d that investors were selling to lock in profits from recent gains in Chinese markets, which have rallied a bit after a month-long bearish trend. 

Meanwhile, Hang Seng index plummeted by 0.5% closing at 16,641.68, on Friday. While the Shanghai Composite went down by 0.9% closing at 2,977.02.

Although the Asian stock market is starting the week with a clear momentum, it remains volatile to a spot of profit-taking as most investors are taking a break after last week’s tech-and-AI fueled global buying frenzy.
