Japan shares rise sharply on Trump’s tariff delay; Apple suppliers soar

TOKYO: Japanese stocks on Wednesday recouped nearly all of the previous day's sharp losses, thanks to Washington delaying the start of tariffs on some Chinese imports. President Donald Trump's move gave a much-needed reprieve for markets, with Japan's chipmaking sector and Apple-related firms getting the strongest tailwind. The Nikkei share average gained 1.0 per cent to 20,655.13, recovering most of its 1.1 per cent fall on Tuesday, while the broader Topix rose 0.9 per cent to 1,499.50. While the White House's announcement on the tariff delay prompted a relief rally on Asian markets, some analysts suspect this might be short-lived. "Markets are responding with muted relief to the latest round in the trade saga - but nothing has really changed," Robert Carnell, ING's Asia-Pacific head of research said in a note to clients. Trump backed off his Sept. 1 deadline for 10 per cent tariffs on all Chinese goods not yet subject to them, delaying duties on cellphon..

The stock market’s unusual pattern this week has historically been a big sell signal

The stock market has done something so unusual this week that it has only happened 19 times in the past 30 years, and the strange pattern could be an ominous sign if history is any guide. The S&P 500 fell 1.2% on Monday, followed by a 1.5% rebound in the next session, and Wednesday's brutal sell-off saw the benchmark losing 2.9% amid the recession signal from the bond market. This consecutive whiplash for the S&P 500 — down 1%, up 1% and down 2% — is a rare occurrence in market history and going back to 1928, the index has lost 2.5% on average in the six months after the phenomenon occurred, according to Bespoke Investment Group. Source: Bespoke Investment Group For stocks, things could change on a dime these days. Investors, who started Tuesday on edge about the geopolitical uncertainties in Hong Kong and Argentina, were surprised by President Donald Trump's decision to delay some of the China tariffs, which sent the market soaring instantly. The rally only lasted for hours..

Inventory at a warehouseGetty ImagesAmazon wants its third-party sellers to make better use of their unsold or unwanted products that often get dumped — by giving them away to charity. Amazon is launching a new donations program, called Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) Donations, for third-party sellers that store their inventory in Amazon's warehouses in the U.S. and UK, CNBC has learned.

A four-day winning streak for Australian shares ended on Tuesday, as investors joined those in other markets shifting to gold and bonds due to jitters on global stability and growth.
