Asian equities leap on American tax cut expectations

On Monday, Asian equities added, with market sentiment underpinned by hopes that American lawmakers are going to approve a long-awaited tax bill this week. Meanwhile Chinese shares were weak, following worries as for liquidity as well as tighter regulations in the world's number two economy.

The launch of bitcoin futures on the CME exchange drove hopes that the cryptocurrency's red-hot soar in the cash market could keep unrolling, although their trading debut turned to be modest.
