Asian markets were boosted Wednesday on increased confidence in the eurozone after Moody’s held off cutting Spain’s credit rating, while Madrid looked to move closer to asking for a bailout.
A successful bond auction for Greece added to the sense of optimism, while the euro maintained its gains seen in late trade Tuesday as investors sought out riskier assets.
Tokyo jumped 1.21 percent, or 105.24 points, to 8,806.55, Sydney added 0.82 percent, or 36.7 points, to 4,528.2 and Seoul was 0.70 percent higher, adding 13.61 points to 1,955.15.
Hong Kong rose 0.99 percent, or 209.57 points, to 21,416.64 and Shanghai was up 0.32 percent, or 6.81 points, at 2,105.62.
Moody’s gave debt-addled Spain some much-needed room on Tuesday when it held the country’s rating at Baa3, one notch above “junk”, citing the European Central Bank’s willingness to buy government bonds to stabilise its borrowing rate.
