Asia Markets: September gets off to a slow start for Asian markets

Asia-Pacific stocks pared initial gains on Friday as the end of summer dried out trading volume and Southeast Asian markets were closed for a holiday.

A solid earnings season has also come to an end in the region, removing a potential market catalyst.

“There are a lot of moving parts in the news flow at the moment, but no one is really making the connection between these and the markets,” said Chris Weston, a strategist at IG Markets. At the same time, markets aren’t concerned about geopolitics, Tuesday’s selloff notwithstanding, he added.

After gains on Wall Street to end August, moves were widely muted in Asia.
