A mixed session for Asian equities on the day

Japanese stocks may be plagued by virus fears, with the Topix also seen down 0.8% today, but Asian stocks elsewhere are faring better on the session.

Chinese equities are trading higher, with the Hang Seng up a little over 1% and the Shanghai Composite also marginally higher by 0.4%, mirroring the more positive mood reflected in US futures ahead of European morning trade.

S&P 500 futures are up 0.5%, Nasdaq futures up 0.9%, and Dow futures up 0.3%.

That is setting up a more positive open for Europe as well, with futures trading higher.
