US Wrap: US & Asia plays close week

A mix of nine different US and Asian equity plays brought the US market to a close last week. Citi launched two new notes - both a reverse convertible and an accelerated growth note. The latter was linked to the performance of the S&P 500 index, offering 200% participation over two years with the return capped at 26-30%.

HSBC added offered a product linked to the iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index Fund, which pays a bullish 500% participation in the fund with the return capped at 60% with no downside protection. Morgan Stanley included an accelerated growth product based on funds in South Korea and Taiwan.
