Good Evening,

The prospects for China's economy were positive even though the world's second largest economy continued to experience downward pressure, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said on Wednesday.

The major Asian markets rose across the board, with the overnight rally on Wall Street further fueling risk appetite. Nikkei soared 7.71% overnight, its biggest session gain since October 2008, after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe scored three more years as head of the Liberal Democratic Party. Abe promised to cut the corporate tax rate by 3.3% points next year, a move that was widely expected. AUDUSD trading at 0.7027 while NZDUSD trading at 0.6407.
