STOCKS: Japanese stocks opened on a high and went into the lunch break in
positive territory with the Nikkei 225 currently up 86.59pts at 19449.36. An MNI
source observed 'positive territory, but no real conviction.'
- 10 of 11 sectors are in the green, utilities being the only sector to come
into the lunch break in the red due to gas companies, more specifically Tokyo
Gas of which shares on Monday climbed 11% after strong earnings were published.
- The Hang Seng Index is up around 154pts, it really did fend off any negative
implications from Typhoon Hato as Chinese energy companies perform well.

the pair 108.88 coming into the Asia session yesterday following Trump's rally

Hang Seng, Energy is the best performing sector.
