Asian markets higher for choice this morning, with the Hang Seng being the outperformer, up 1.2%,  playing catch up after being closed yesterday. The Euro is slightly better bid first thing and in turn risk assets are slightly higher, mainly on expectations that central banks in Europe and China will continue to ease monetary policy.

Volumes are likely to remain lighter than normal with Us markets closed for half day today and July 4th, so far this morning European Equity futures are indicating 0.25-0.5% firmer.
