    Trading in Asia was mixed

    European storks ended the Dow down, the day down rather between one and a half and two and a half percent. It appears the mid-day rally on the governments’ efforts to support banks has run out of steam. Trading in Asia was mixed as investor-enthusiasm of the global rate cut was tempered

    I don't understand the meaning of "mixed" in this sentence
    Is mixed a financial term? Thanks for your help

    I think it means here, some good, some bad. Some stocks were trading up, others down.

    Re: Trading in Asia was mixed

    Yes, exactly. It's not limited to the financial sector.
    Reviews for the new play were mixed. (Some were good, some bad.)
    Responses to the proposal were mixed. (Some thought it a good idea, some did not.)

    Your typo for "stocks" have your sentence an unintended humor, though.
