Asian stocks are at seven-month maximum

On Monday, Asian stocks rallied to seven-month maximums, as traders welcomed a rebound in American payrolls as well as hints of more stimulus in China, although there was some caution ahead of what might be a tough American earnings season.

China told that it would step up a policy of targeted cuts to financial institutions’ required reserve ratios with the aim of encouraging financing for medium-sized and small businesses.

As for Chinese blue chips, they rallied by 1.4% - an outcome not observed since March 2018. MSCI's index of Asia-Pacific stocks jumped by 0.4% hitting its highest value since August.

Additionally, Japan's Nikkei also demonstrated the year’s maximum, last soaring by 0.1%. As for E-Mini futures for the S&P 500, they were nearly intact.

Meanwhile, on Wall Street, the benchmark S&P 500 concluded up for its seventh consecutive trading session the previous week, which appears to be the longest winning marathon since October 2017.

On Friday, there was a huge indication of relief worldwide when the American payrolls report revealed a firm 196,000 ascend in jobs in March, and annual wage surge speeded down a bit to 3.2%.

The American economy is still firm and doesn’t justify any rate cut hopes over the next six months.

The evergreen buck stood still sticking with 97.329 versus a pack of currencies on Monday, although remained short of the March maximum of 97.710, marking major chart resistance.

The evergreen buck held its recent profit on Japan’s currency at 111.52, although again requires clearing the March maximum of 112.12 to generate a true uptrend.

The common currency has been undermined by a pack of downbeat data out of the EU and reached $1.1218, which is not far from its recent 20-month dip of $1.1174.

Crude prices went up to their highest values since November last year, powered by OPEC's everlasting supply cuts and American sanctions against Venezuela and Iran.
