TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Asian stocks traded cautiously early Monday, with investors showing little reaction to the weekend’s G-7 meeting and hack of a South Korean cryptocurrency exchange. Following Friday’s broad regional declines, the Kospi SEU, +0.76% and the Nikkei were each up around 0.3% as the yen strengthened a bit since the end of Friday’s local stock trading.
With the Trump-Kim summit Tuesday and the world’s three most-important central banks — the Fed, European Central Bank and Bank of Japan — all meeting this week, investors are liable to do much more nibbling than eating for at least the next few days.
