Asian stocks stand still, on track for gaining week

On Friday, Asian stocks were flat, while staying on track for a weekly revenue, while crude prices drifted away from this week's 10-month minimums.

Outside Japan, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks didn’t change on the day, while it gained 0.4% for the week.

Japan's Nikkei stock index N225 soared 0.1%, on track to log a soar of 1% for a week, where it hit its highest value since August 2015.

The dollar index, traditionally assessing the US currency’s value versus a basket of six key rivals, dived 0.1%, hitting 97.488, although leaping 0.3% for the week.

Overnight, on Wall Street American stocks showed rather a mixed performance, although the S&P healthcare index jumped 1% and reached its fifth consecutive record close, reacting to the publication of the Senate Republicans' bill.

According to Tuesday’s economic report, the total number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits inched up moderately the previous week.
