Regional equity markets traded higher........>

STOCKS: Regional equity markets traded higher during Asia-Pac hours on Friday,
with the Nikkei 225 outperforming ahead of an elongated holiday weekend in
Japan, aided by USD/JPY stabilising above Y108.00.
- Chinese holidays removed the major regional risk driver of recent times, while
liquidity was also thinned by South Korean & Taiwanese market closures and
headline flow was light at best.
- Nikkei +0.9%, Hang Seng +0.2%, ASX 200 unch.
- S&P 500 futures +3, DJIA futures +30, NASDAQ 100 +12.
