Asian stocks began the week in mixed.........>

STOCKS: Asian stocks began the week in mixed fashion as cross currents on the
geopolitical & trade war fronts left investors in a somewhat indecisive state.
- The Nikkei 225 lost 0.2% with the health care sector acting as the major
laggard, while financials benefitted from the uptick in yields.
- The Hang Seng lost 0.3% as the IT sector weighed, with energy names also
slipping although the telecoms sector cushioned the fall. China's CSI 300 fared
a little better, printing the most modest of gains.
- Australia's ASX 200 added 0.4%, as miners and financials helped the index move
higher, while the IT sector was the largest decliner.
- US index futures were higher from the off with the e-mini S&P adding 7 points,
as the mini Dow added 70 points.
