Asian stocks approach two-year peak as American hi-tech rebound drives mood

On Tuesday, Japan's Nikkei acquired more than 1%, getting to a two-year peak, underpinned by rebound in American hi-tech stocks because traders bet on solid surge in the US economy as well as corporate profits worldwide.

Outside Japan MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks were intact, keeping to a two-year peak reached the previous week.

A great number of market participants expect the so-called A stocks, forming the majority of China's stock market to be included.

The blue-chip CSI300 index of mainland shares headed south 0.2%.

Wall Street's S&P 500 as well as the Dow industrial average reached record peaks as technology stocks rebounded after some sudden dips earlier this month.

American financial stocks also surged as US debt yields went up after New York Federal Reserve President William Dudley told that American inflation should rebound along with wages because the labor market keeps improving.
