- Japanese stocks gained heavily this morning, posting their largest daily jump in four months. Easing tensions in Ukraine, and exporters on the rise due to the yen stepping back from its sharp gains last week - both contributed to the rise.
- The Nikkei recouped most of its steep losses from Friday, soaring 2.4% to 15,130.52 - its largest daily percentage gain since mid-April. The Topix climbed 2% to 1,252.51, while the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 gained 2.1% to 11,402.48.
