STOCKS: Broader markets are seemingly breathing a sigh of relief after the U.S.
China trade spat failed to escalate further over the weekend, with Asia-Pacific
equities broadly higher, as the major fixed income benchmarks edge lower and the
yuan firms. 
- It is also worth noting that the uptick in risk appetite has taken place
despite U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo dismissing North Korea's accusation
of a "gangster-like mindset" in denuclearization talks, saying the two nations
had productive conversations that will continue in the days ahead.
- The Nikkei 225, Hang Seng & CSI 300 added over 1.0% a piece, although the ASX
200 lagged, adding a meagre 0.2% as the energy sector weighed.
- US index futures also moved higher, tracking the global risk backdrop.
