Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group is around $8.81 after gaining 1.38%

From an earlier low of $8.71, the Japanese banking institution is on track to end the session around $8.81 after gaining 12 cents compared to last trading session's $8.69 (1.38%).

Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group's uptick comes amid disappointing United States macroeconomic data released during the session – following a previous reading of 8.41 million, Crude Oil Inventories in United States released today at 15:30 UTC fell short of the 971,000 figure expected by analysts with an actual reading of 533,000.

Meanwhile, United States 5-Year Note Auction released today at 18:00 UTC with a figure of 3.53, while the previous figure was 3.973. United States Cushing Crude Oil Inventories released today at 15:30 UTC with a figure of 4.27 million, while the previous figure was 3.65 million.

This rally in Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group's share price coincides with other financials stocks as Wells Fargo & Company is trading at $45.37 after ending yesterday's session at $44.45 (up 2.06%). HSBC Holdings gained 1.13%, currently at $37.1.

While Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group is higher so far today, these financials stocks are struggling: HDFC Bank Limited is trading around $67.32 (down 5.77%).

Furthermore, the market is looking at United States Core Durable Goods Orders projected to decline to -0.2% while previous data was 0.1%; data will be released tomorrow at 13:30 UTC. United States GDP projected to come out at 2.6 — worse than previous data of 3.2; data will be released tomorrow at 13:30 UTC. As things stand, upcoming United States Initial Jobless Claims data is projected to fall short of market expectations with newly published data of 205,000, following on from the preceding figure of 190,000. New data is set to be published tomorrow at 13:30 UTC.

The stock has been trending positively for about 3 months. The Japanese financial services firm now trading 55.73% above its 3-month low of $5.39.
