Asia report: the markets' response to the Fed

Like the US, the really aggressive buying has taken place in Australian bond markets.

Equity markets have been generally bid. After an opening low of 5093, the ASX 200 had a strong 1.7% reversal, even though volumes have been a lot lower than usual. In Japan, the Nikkei is in negative territory due to a weaker USD/JPY.
