Asian shares race to four-month peak as Fed pivot rally rolls on

Friday saw Asian shares reaching a four-month peak, propelled by steep declines in the dollar and US yields, extending a rally ignited by the Federal Reserve. However, hopes for a global pivot faced a setback as European central banks pushed back on rate cuts, potentially disrupting the upward trend.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan surged 0.9%, hitting its highest level since early August before encountering resistance due to a reversal in Chinese shares. The week closed with a strong 2.8% gain. Meanwhile, Japan’s Nikkei climbed 1% amid this positive market sentiment.
