TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Markets in Asia were higher across the board on Thursday, with a strong finish on Wall Street overnight giving the region reason to rise, as traders continued to digest a week of key central bank signals.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 was up 0.45% at 20,220.30, as the yen weakened against the dollar, last losing 0.26% to JPY 112.59.

The Toshiba memory chip circus played another matinee performance, as the conglomerate announced yet another delay to the sale of the valuable division, instead opting to take legal action against US memory giant Western Digital for supposedly interfering in the deal.

Western Digital had objected to Toshiba’s planned sale of the division to a Japanese state-backed consortium, as its SanDisk subsidiary was in joint venture with Toshiba at a manufacturing facility and wanted more of a say in the deal.
