The South Korea stock market has moved higher in three straight sessions, collecting almost 60 points or 2.4 percent along the way. The KOSPI now rests just shy of the 2,430-point plateau although it may spin its wheels on Thursday.

The global forecast for the Asian markets suggests little movement amid a lack of catalysts with some markets still on holiday. The European and U.S. markets were mixed and little changed and the Asian bourses figure to follow that lead.

The KOSPI finished sharply higher on Wednesday as it caught up on missed positive sentiment from over the Lunar New Year holiday. Financials and technology stocks led the way.

For the day, the index jumped 33.31 points or 1.39 percent to finish at 2.428.57. Volume was 539.8 million shares worth 6.57 trillion won. There were 526 gainers and 325 decliners.

Among the actives, Shinhan Financial collected 1.73 percent, while KB Financial spiked 2.63 percent, Hana Financial jumped 1.75 percent, Samsung Electronics rallied 2.59 percent, Samsung SDI surged 4.85 percent, LG Electronics rose 0.31 percent, SK Hynix soared 4.34 percent, Naver accelerated 3.06 percent, LG Chem increased 4.32 percent, Lotte Chemical tanked 1.97 percent, S-Oil advanced 0.91 percent, SK Innovation skyrocketed 3.19 percent, POSCO tumbled 1.78 percent, SK Telecom declined 1.71 percent, KEPCO sank 0.74 percent, Hyundai Mobis strengthened 1.43 percent, Hyundai Motor improved 0.73 percent and Kia Motors climbed 1.09 percent.
