Australian Futures Rise While Yen Holds Gains; Oil Slips

Australian index futures rose before services data from China to the U.K. and U.S., while contracts on Japan’s Nikkei 225 Stock Average retreated amid a stronger yen. Crude oil fell for the fourth time in five days.

 

S&P/ASX 200 Index futures added 0.2 percent in Sydney, signaling the gauge may rise a second day. Futures on the Nikkei 225 (NKA) were bid at 14,160 in the Osaka pre-market, from 14,190 in Japan yesterday and 14,195 in Chicago. The yen traded near a five-week high versus the greenback. Standard & Poor’s 500 Index futures lost 0.2 percent after equities closed 0.1 percent lower in New York. New Zealand’s dollar pared gains from a 1 1/2-week high. West Texas Intermediate crude oil lost 0.3 percent. More story
