On Monday, Asian equities turned positive, shrugging off a fresh North Korean missile test, and market participants shifted their focus to a bunch of economic reports as well as earnings this week. Meanwhile, the greenback crept up, though it was still capped by American political concerns.

European equities are braced for a muted start, with financial spreadbetter CMC Markets actually expecting the UK’s FTSE 100, France's CAC 40 and Germany's DAX to all start nearly intact.

Outside Japan MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks reversed early losses to inch up 0.25%.

Chinese equities ascended, underpinned by several leading companies' predictions for firm mid-year profits. The blue-chip index along with the Shanghai Composite both headed north 0.6%. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng grew 1% hitting a two-year maximum.

That solid performance came notwithstanding a dip in official China’s manufacturing and services purchasing managers' indices for July. However, they fluctuated above the 50-point level, separating contraction from surge on a monthly basis.
