STOCKS: A fairly mundane session for the major regional equity markets during
the Asia-Pac session.
- Japanese markets returned from yesterday's holiday, with Softbank surging on
the back of the Sprint/T-Mobile merger approval. Softbank is a major shareholder
of Sprint.
- Elsewhere, the major regional equity indices traded higher, likely aided by
the continued fall in the growth rate of new Coronavirus cases.
- U.S. equity index futures shrugged off Bernie Sanders (expected) win in the
New Hampshire Democratic Primary, and continue to operate just shy of all-time
highs.
- Nikkei +0.5%, Hang Seng +0.7%, CSI 300 +0.3%, ASX 200 +0.5%.
- S&P futures +5, DJIA futures +42, NASDAQ 100 futures +23.
