Asian stocks advanced on Thursday after a US rally triggered by earnings and robust economic data.

Shares rose in Japan, Australia and South Korea amid Wall Street surge that deposited the S&P 500 close to a two-month high. At 6:45 am, the Singapore-traded SGX Nifty -- an early barometer of India's benchmark Nifty 50 -- traded 0.47% higher at 17,521 points.

Federal Reserve officials again signaled they will do what’s required to tackle high inflation with rate increases. The dollar fluctuated and oil held a plunge on signs of slowing demand in a US inventory report. Gold was steady and Bitcoin slid below $23,000.
