An upbeat return for Japanese stocks after the long break

The Nikkei closes up 1.8% at 29,331.37 while the Topix closes up 1.5% at 1,927.40 as Japanese stocks are more buoyed after returning from the Golden Week holiday.

The higher close owes to a catch-up to equities sentiment this week and also sees the Nikkei and Topix steer clear of any test of their respective 100-day moving averages.

Meanwhile, the Hang Seng is seen up 0.6% while Chinese equities are also holding a slight advance with the Shanghai Composite up 0.2% currently.

Elsewhere, US futures are little changed but keeping steadier in general with S&P 500 futures, Nasdaq futures, and Dow futures all up 0.1% ahead of European trading.Invest in yourself. See our forex education hub.
