Trading in most other emerging Asian markets was thinned by holidays in China and Taiwan, and as investors awaited monetary policy meetings, including the U.S. Federal Reserve's, this week. The rupiah weakened 0.3% and was on track for its biggest one-day fall since May 20. Stocks in Jakarta inched up amid expectations that Bank Indonesia will keep interest rates at record lows on Thursday.

Malaysia's ringgit and Thailand's baht, both about 0.2% lower on the day, have risen for the last three weeks.

Stocks in Jakarta traded flat by 0412 GMT as dealers also looked ahead to Thursday's monetary policy meeting, where Bank Indonesia is expected to leave rates at record lows. Malaysia's ringgit and Thailand's baht inched about 0.2% lower as overall trading was thinned by holidays in China and Taiwan and investors awaited monetary policy meetings. Investors are also eyeing the meeting to see whether the Fed could signal it is moving away from ultra-loose monetary policy earlier than expected. "Fundamentals and flows would remain supportive of Asia FX and we see modest room for a further gain vs USD," ANZ Research analysts said. Taiwan's central bank also holds a monetary policy meeting on Thursday, while the Bank of Japan will announce its rate decision on Friday.

United States President Joe Biden's plan to unite Washington's closest allies and take on China just scored a big political win. The G7 confronted China on just about every sore spot, from allegations of human rights abuses and forced labor in Xinjiang to ongoing political disputes over Hong Kong, Taiwan and the South China Sea. China still fired back against the statement, accusing the G7 of deliberately slandering China" and "arbitrarily interfering in China's internal affairs." Under Biden, the United States recently expanded a ban on American investment in dozens of Chinese firms. In his statement reported by Xinhua, the Chinese President said it was important to "maintain overall social stability and create a good atmosphere for the Party's centenary."

The Chinese military has deployed extra surveillance forces in the air and waters near a disputed South China Sea archipelago as tensions rise between Beijing and its Southeast Asia neighbours. "Recently there's been an uptick in foreign military activities, especially naval movements by US and allied forces, in the South China Sea. The United States conducted 72 reconnaissance flights over the South China Sea in May, up from 65 in April, according to the Beijing-based South China Sea Strategic Situation Probing Initiative, which monitors military activity in the region. Beijing claims almost all of the South China Sea, but there are overlapping claims with the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan, leading to confrontations over the disputed waters. Wang also told the assembled foreign ministers that China would push forward discussions for a code of conduct in the South China Sea.

But a closer look reveals NFTs are no more than a pump-and-dump scheme designed to make a few crypto insiders rich. Beeple NFTs were being pumped by crypto bros months beforehand, only to culminate in a large sale that brought a media storm to NFTs and the world's attention to a graphic artist who few people previously had ever heard of. The Singapore native had been anonymously bidding up the price of Beeple NFTs starting in October. And he gave 2% of the B20 token supply — an index fund representing the value of those NFTs — back to Beeple. Similarly, buyers of NFTs will be left holding the bag, when people realize what people were convinced were collectibles, are better off being disposables.

South Korea's won and Thailand's baht gained around 0.5% as the dollar nursed small losses following the report. U.S. Treasury yields fell to lows not seen since early March at one point in Asian trade, with traders saying short-covering was driving the rally. Asia's emerging market currencies and bonds, though considered riskier, traditionally yield more than their peers in developed markets. Stocks markets in the region also largely gained, with South Korea leading the way with a 0.8% rise, while Thailand , the Philippines and others rose no more than half a percent. Although bets on the reopening was largely factored in, analysts say the bank-and-landlord-heavy Singapore benchmark has further room to rise.

Two passengers sharing a room on a Caribbean cruise ship tested positive this week for Covid-19, triggering safety precautions that enabled some 600 other passengers to continue eating and gambling on the ship. The passengers who tested positive are asymptomatic and are in isolation, the cruise line said. At the same time, cruise lines have said the detection of positive cases onboard indicates that their health and safety protocols are working. John Roberts, a travel writer, said passengers around him have generally reacted calmly since the captain announced the positive cases. “It suggests, at least, that the amount of virus circulating in their bodies is low enough not to create severe symptoms,” Dr. Pereira said of the two passengers who tested positive.

BlackRock, the world’s largest money manager with $9 trillion in assets under management as of end-March, has made expansion in China a priority. It secured a nod from the China Securities Regulatory Commission last August to establish the mutual-fund business, which is now permitted to begin selling funds. “We look forward to sharing our global investment expertise and offering more differentiated investment solutions to Chinese investors,” BlackRock Chairman and Chief Executive Larry Fink said in a statement Friday. BlackRock’s Shanghai-based unit, BlackRock Fund Management Co., now has six months to launch its maiden fund for individual investors, a spokeswoman said. This and future funds are likely to be sold through traditional mutual-fund distribution channels in China, which include banks and brokerages, she added.

REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon/File photoFour of Toshiba Corp’s (6502.T) independent directors called on Friday for a shake-up of the Japanese conglomerate’s management and board, accusing them of “unacceptable” actions directly against the interests of shareholders. The public criticism is the clearest sign yet of the fallout from the shareholder-commissioned report released on Thursday, which has put Toshiba's management and Japan's powerful trade ministry under scrutiny and renewed concerns about governance. Earlier on Friday, U.S. proxy advisory firm Glass Lewis urged shareholders at this year's AGM to vote against the re-appointment of Toshiba board chairman Osamu Nagayama and four others nominated by the company for the 13-member board. The independent investigation found Toshiba had devised a plan to exert undue influence on Singapore-based Effissimo Capital Management, Toshiba's top shareholder, to withdraw its proposed board nominees.
