Japanese shares ended lower on Thursday, tracking Wall Street's losses, as the U.S. Federal Reserve's minutes showed that policymakers were concerned about the uncertain path of economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. "With earnings season over, the market is waiting for new factors," said Takashi Hiroki, chief strategist at Monex Securities. Minutes from the Fed's July 28-29 meeting published on Wednesday showed policymakers judged that the swift rebound in employment seen in May and June had likely slowed and that additional "substantial improvement" in the labour market would hinge on a "broad and sustained" reopening of business activity.
Japanese shares ended lower on Friday as Sino-U.S. tensions heightened following a U.S. ban on transactions with China's tech firms, while a raft of lacklustre domestic earnings and caution ahead of key U.S. jobs data also weighed. Tokyo shares tracked China and Hong Kong stocks lower in the afternoon, as the Trump administration unveiled bans on U.S. transactions with ByteDance's TikTok and Tencent-owned WeChat, stoking fears that a "silicon curtain" is emerging between the two superpowers. U.S. non-farm payroll due later in the day is widely expected to show that jobs creation in the United States slowed in July from the prior month, indicating a resurgence in COVID-19 infections is undermining the world's largest economy.
Japanese shares fell on Friday as the market reacted to a string of disappointing earnings and forecasts, while investors also took a cautious stance ahead of the U.S. non-farm payroll data for July and a long weekend. SUMCO Corp, which produces equipment for making semiconductors, slid 9.77% after reporting a 26.8% decline in its January-September net profit. SUMCO's fall dragged down its peer Advantest Corp by 4.04%, while Screen Holdings Co Ltd and Tokyo Electron Ltd lost 4.01% and 3.2%, respectively.
