Shares in Asia were set to rise at the open on Tuesday, with U.S. President Donald Trump continuing his visit to Japan. Futures pointed to a higher open in Japan. The Nikkei futures contract in Chicago was at 21,220, as compared to the benchmark Nikkei 225′s last close at 21,182.58.

However, the U.S. isn’t ready to make a trade deal with China as Trump said commented during his state visit to Japan, “I think they probably wish they made the deal that they had on the table before they tried to renegotiate it. They would like to make a deal. We’re not ready to make a deal.” Gold prices touched a more than one-week high on Monday as fears of a protracted U.S.-China trade war hurt risk sentiment, while poor economic data from the United States bolstered bets of a U.S. Federal Reserve rate cut. Spot gold edged 0.1% higher to $1,286.21 per ounce as of 0714 GMT.
