Asian shares curbs recent losses, attention on central bank tapering

“At some point in time, investors will say actually this is the right price, it’s not going to go to zero,” says the head of Asian equities.

With the local benchmark rebounding 1.5 percent, an increase was being led by Hong Kong having decreased over 2 percent the day before when the Chinese tech stocks took another battering after authorities called gaming firms in for a word. whereas traders could be found still careful about buying too much of the dip.

John Lau, head of Asian equities and a senior portfolio manager at SEI, referring to Chinese tech said in a press release “At some point in time investors will say actually this is the right price, it’s not going to go to zero.”

“I think most investors will wait until the dust settles and see whether is there is enough clarity before they can act, at this point in time it’s extremely difficult,” John Lau added.
