Asian Stocks Struggle for Traction; Yields Steady

Asian stocks posted modest gains Friday following an afternoon rally in the U.S. that erased most of the day's losses, as investors grappled with shifting indications on U.S.-China trade talks and prospects for a pause in Federal Reserve tightening.

Shares rose in Hong Kong, South Korea and Australia, though Japan's benchmarks struggled to hold their early advance. Futures on the S&P 500 Index were little changed after the U.S. equity market recovered the bulk of the day's declines on Thursday, though still ended lower.

The MSCI Asia Pacific Index was up 0.3 percent as of 10:37 a.m. in Tokyo

Japan's Topix index added less than 0.1 percent, Hang Seng rose 0.4 percent, Shanghai Composite rose 0.2 percent, Australia™s S&P/ASX 200 Index gained 0.7 percent.

Ten-year Treasury yields stayed near 2.90 percent. The dollar was steady, with most G-10 currencies showing no sizable moves. Next up for embattled traders: the monthly U.S. payrolls report Friday.
