To see that surge motivated because of that, you too you would ask the question. Asian markets rallied last Friday. Thursday, the European Central Bank's president Mario Draghi said that the central bank could do another large stimulus plan, so, basically, more easing. This was welcomed nicely by Europe and Wall Street, but also, from... Asia. And this easing policy, normally letting know that the Europe isn't in a so good shape that banks have to do easing and stimulus to help the economy, is finally making many markets happy, Asians included. After all, it's not really their manufacturing numbers that will keep them happy. The numbers: NIKKEI got +2.11% or +389.43 pts at 18,825.30 pts. HSI is at 23,151.94 pts, with +1.34% or +306.57 pts. ASX 200 scored +1.67% or +87.72 pts at 5,351.56 pts. Shangai Composite did +1.32% or +44.45 pts with 3,413.19 pts. Finally, KOSPI got +0.86% or +17.40 pts at 2,040.40 pts.
