Asian equities buoyed by hopes of further China stimulus
Late last week, the PBOC announced a reduction to its RRR w.e.f. 16 September and that sentiment is helping Asian equities to stay more firm in trading to start the week.
Chinese stocks are also holding higher but the Hang Seng is keeping more flat amid lingering worries about protests in the city. US futures are a little higher but overall risk sentiment remains more flattish as we begin European trading.
