Moving to the equity markets, the Nasdaq Composite rose 1,7% yesterday, boosted by big gains in major technology names, ahead for a big week of corporate earnings, and the passage of a new fiscal rescue package.
Asian markets were higher on Tuesday morning, following the overnight positive sentiment in Wall Street. Kospi and Hang Seng led the gains with 1% despite the recent escalation in US-China tensions.
