All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On August 6

Asian stocks were steady early Friday after earnings helped Wall Street to a record close as some of the growth concerns stirred by the delta coronavirus strain eased.

Shares fluctuated in Australia and in Japan -- where Nintendo Co. slid after a profit miss -- while South Korea edged up. U.S. contracts were little changed after the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 reached new peaks. A second weekly drop in U.S. jobless claims stoked optimism for a strong payrolls report Friday, which could spark market swings.

The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, rose 0.14% to 16,334 as of 7:30 a.m.

Treasuries held a retreat and the dollar was steady. The pound maintained an advance after the Bank of England signaled concerns about inflation. The selloff in crude oil eased but it remains on course for a weekly drop of more than 6% in part on demand risks from Covid-19.

In cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin was back above $40,000 and Ether maintained a rally on a software upgrade that will trim the pace at which tokens are minted.
