Tokyo investors are likely to be cautious next week about a possible market downturn, analysts said Friday, while political developments in Japan will be a focus ahead of an election next month. "The market continues to show all the signs of being technically overbought and potentially ready for a pullback," said Masayuki Doshida, senior market analyst at Rakuten Securities.

An end-of-year increase in financial market volatility is too little, too late to offset investor risk aversion, tepid volume growth and increased regulatory scrutiny that is making cutbacks on equity desks likely.
Canadian stocks are expected to build on gains that already took the broad market to a record high this year, but they may lose momentum in 2015 as weaker commodity prices and a sluggish domestic economy take hold, a Reuters poll found. Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index will reach 15,500 by the end of the year, up about 14 percent from the end of 2013 and a gain of just around 3 percent from Wednesday's close, the poll showed.
A slight rebound in oil prices and a rally in global equities supported most stock markets in the Middle East on Sunday, but profit-taking continued in Qatar. Brent crude climbed back above $80 a barrel and global stock markets also rose on Friday after China made a surprise interest rate cut and the European Central Bank indicated it would step up asset purchases.
Ukraine would be willing to repay early a $3 billion bond held entirely by Russia if the issue's conditions are violated, but not until next year, a senior Ukrainian Finance Ministry official said on Friday. Russia bought the two-year bond in December, before the fall of Ukraine's pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovich, Moscow's annexation of Crimea and the violent conflict in the eastern part of Ukraine that followed.
United Arab Emirates-based Abraaj Investment Management has increased the price it is offering shareholders of Bisco Misr to buy the Egyptian company, Abraaj said in a statement on Sunday. Abraaj is now offering 79.10 pounds ($11.06) a share for a total purchase price of 909.65 million pounds, it said in Sunday's statement. It did not give a reason for the increase. The private equity firm received regulatory approval last week for its offer to buy one of Egypt's main producers of cakes and biscuits at 73.91 pounds per share.
Intrepid Aviation Ltd, an aircraft leasing company, filed with US regulators on Wednesday for an initial public offering of common stock. The company owned 16 aircraft, mostly Airbus A330s and Boeing 777s, with net book value of about $1.7 billion as of June 30.
