All You Need To Know Going Into Trade On July 5

Asian stocks were steady early Monday after U.S. shares climbed further on speculation the Federal Reserve has scope to continue providing substantial stimulus support. Oil edged lower amid an OPEC+ spat.

Japanese shares slipped while South Korea and Australia inched up. The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, rose 0.44% at 15,817.50 as of 6:30 a.m.

The S&P 500 reached a record for a seventh day Friday after a U.S. jobs report signaled the economy is gaining steam but not at a pace that would prompt the central bank to taper stimulus quickly. U.S. stock and bond markets are closed for the July 4 Independence Day holiday.

Oil was around $75 a barrel amid an OPEC+ dispute that cast doubt on a deal that may temper prices. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are at odds.

Elsewhere, China’s stock market open will be in focus in case the move causes jitters by again highlighting Beijing’s push to curb the influence of the nation’s largest technology companies.
