TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The benchmark is back near that level, and Chinese markets are poised to stay weak and volatile in the short-term “without major policies to boost the economy in China,” said Castor Pang, head of research at Core Pacific-Yamaichi International.

Late Wednesday, China’s State Council unveiled additional tax-relief policies intended to support high-tech companies, startups and small firms.

But Ivan Ip, a market strategist at UOB Kay Hian, said Thursday’s market movement showed investors weren’t interpreting the tax-relief policies as good news, and were instead concerned U.S.-China trade frictions might be spreading further into the tech sector.
