    HONG KONG, Feb 16 (Reuters) – Asian stocks edged up to fresh 19-month highs on Thursday, helped by an extended rally on Wall Street and strong U.S. data though the dollar stepped back after a recent bounce.

    MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.2 percent, rising to its highest since July 2015. It is up by a tenth so far this year partly underpinned by more optimistic earnings expectations and a gradual unwinding of bearish emerging market bets.

    Australian stocks advanced 0.4 percent in early deals with looming jobs data the key event risk on the day. A strong showing would set the market up for further gains with technical indicators helping.

    “The index has now closed above the key technical resistance level at 5,800 which is a bullish sign opening up further gains in the coming months back towards 6,000,” said James Woods, global investment analyst at Rivkin Securities in Sydney.

    The Australian employment data is due at 00:30 GMT with market expectations centering around 10,000 jobs being created.

    Wall Street pushed further into record-high territory on Wednesday, with the S&P 500 notching a seven-session winning streak, helped by robust economic data and optimism that President Donald Trump will cut corporate taxes.

    That optimism was not shared in the currency markets with the dollar’s recent bounce running out of steam as investors took profits even as fresh data showed a pick up in inflationary pressures.

    U.S. consumer prices recorded their biggest increase in nearly four years in January, backing expectations for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates at a steady pace over the course of the year.

    Fed Chair Janet Yellen, in her second day of economic testimony before Congress, offered no additional insight on the timing of the central bank’s next rate hike after her comments a day earlier had hinted at a fairly hawkish policy stance.

    Traders may also be leaning towards a rate increase delayed beyond the Fed’s March meeting, with the futures markets only pricing a 27 percent chance of a tightening next month.

    The dollar index, which measures the currency against a trade-weighted basket of six major peers, slipped to 101.02. It rallied to a one-month high of 101.76 on Wednesday.

    In commodity markets, oil prices softened as record high U.S. crude and gasoline inventories fed concerns about a global glut. U.S. crude was down 0.15 percent at $53.03 a barrel and Brent was flat at $55.75 a barrel
