Asian stocks surge ahead of Yellen

Asian stocks surge ahead of Yellen

On Wednesday, Asian stocks managed to tack on after Wall Street weathered a fresh twist in the controversy over Donald Trump's hypothetical connection with Russia, while market participants looked ahead to Fed Chair Janet Yellen's comments.

Outside Japan MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks soared 0.4%. Japan's yen-sensitive Nikkei tumbled 0.3% on the yen's revenues, though MSCI's dollar-denominated Japan index inched up 0.4%.

American shares took a brief dip after emails unveiled Trump's eldest son welcomed assistance from a Russian lawyer for his dad’s 2016 election campaign versus Hillary Clinton. Nevertheless, by the closing bell, Wall Street stocks recovered from their losses.

The US currency failed to revive after the damage inflicted by the recent twist in the Trump campaign's hypothetical links with Russia.

The evergreen buck dived 0.3%, hitting 113.60 yen, diving from a four-month peak of 114.495 yen hit on Tuesday.
