Seoul shares opened higher Wednesday, tracking overnight gains on Wall Street, buoyed by dovish comments on interest rates by Federal Reserve officials.
The benchmark Korea Composite Stock Price Index rose 44.09 points, or 1.84 percent, to 2,446.67 in the first 15 minutes of trading.
Overnight, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.4 percent to 33,739.30, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite gained 0.6 percent to 13,562.84.
Traders have expected another rate hike this year due to higher-than-expected US employment data in September.
But Fed officials have begun to acknowledge a lesser need for further rate hikes given the current economic conditions, analysts said.
But traders are keeping a close eye on developments in the Israel-Palestine conflict for cues in reorganizing their investment portfolios.
