    Asia stocks edge up, await China GDP, dollar rises as yields spike

    Asian stocks inched up to near decade highs on Thursday, continuing to ride on a global equities rally, while the dollar resumed its rise on the back of a spike in U.S. yields. Trade was cautious, however, as investors waited for third-quarter economic growth data from China at 0200 GMT, which is expected to show its momentum is starting to cool as the government reins in the property market and cracks down on riskier lending. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan (.MIAPJ0000PUS) edged up 0.05 percent, nearing a 10-year peak scaled on Tuesday.

    U.S. dollar up, yield curve flat, on inflation; stocks rise

    U.S. stocks rose on Tuesday after company earnings reports were better than expected, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average breaching the 23,000 mark for the first time, while the U.S. Treasury yield curve flattened and the dollar rose to a one-week high on increased inflation expectations. The Dow briefly touched a new high of 23,002.20, powered by earnings from UnitedHealth and Johnson & Johnson. The S&P 500 had been negative as traders were left unimpressed by some bank earnings, but it ticked up before the market closed.

    Oil steady as U.S. output gains offset Middle East tensions

    Oil prices ended little changed on Tuesday, steadying after earlier gains and losses, as expectations of high U.S. production and exports offset concerns that fighting between Iraqi and Kurdish forces could threaten the country's crude output. The fighting in one of Iraq's main oil-producing areas helped to restore a risk premium on oil prices, though officials said that oilfields in the region were operating normally. "Everyone is looking to see if the high level of (U.S.) crude oil exports will pull down inventories again," Kilduff said.
