Asian equities approach record peaks

On Friday, Asian equities approached a record maximum because American jobs data pointed to sturdy economic surge, although the US currency was soft because the specter of benign inflation limited domestic bond yields.

MSCI's index of Asia-Pacific stocks edged up 0.3% hitting 584.5, with benchmark indexes in Australia and South Korea gaining respectively 0.6% and 0.8%.

The MSCI index declined 1% from its all-time maximum of 591.5 reached in November 2007.

Japan's Nikkei N225 managed to earn 0.5% hitting a 26-year maximum.

MSCI's indicator of equities around the world has soared 2.1% so far this reporting its best weekly performance since July.

Notwithstanding signs of a firm American labor market, the evergreen buck happened to be soft, keeping to its three-month minimum versus a basket of crucial currencies.

The dollar index didn’t change, sticking to 91.877, which is close to Tuesday's three-month minimum of 91.751.
