Earlier, Asian markets ended the week mostly on a higher note. But analysts also said that the first full trading week of 2019 showed a solid performance after a tumultuous month of December for equities. "Despite a lackluster end to the week, 2019 has managed to get off to a decent start despite equity markets finishing 2018 very much on the back foot," said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets UK. "Traders have yet to hear any further details about the US-China trade talks," said CMC Markets UK analyst David Madden, saying in the meantime markets "appear to be taking a breather." The outlook also predicted solid sales in both the United States and China, despite trade war uncertainty that has raised uncertainty in both markets.
