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. 
- USD/JPY is at 109.63, in line with Tsy's USD up on the session after lows of
the pair 108.88 coming into the Asia session yesterday following Trump's rally
in Arizona. 
- The ASX is down 2pts, after dropping 20pts on the open, contradictory to the
Hang Seng, Energy is the best performing sector.
- European markets picked up from yesterday mainly in the green but the Dow, the
S&P500 and the Nasdaq ended their sessions in the red with Jackson Hole looming.
