Stocks in Asia looked set for gains after a strong session on Wall Street as a slew of data bolstered confidence in the American economy, and treasuries tumbled. Futures ticked higher in Japan, Hong Kong and Australia, while the S&P 500 advanced over 1% as trade hostilities appeared to ease between the U.S. and China. Strong private payrolls data and a better-than-expected reading on the services sector tamped down recession angst, while yields on Treasuries jumped amid a deluge of investment-grade corporate supply. News, too, that top Chinese and American officials agreed to restart talks aimed at ending the trade war is helping boost sentiment, and adds to a renewed appetite for risk assets that took hold earlier in the week. After the strong U.S. economic data, focus is now likely to shift to remarks from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and the latest jobs report, both due Friday.
