Happy Asian Trader

In the wake of the US market rally, Asian markets opened and they’re up in early trading:

Japan’s Nikkei is up 0.4%

Korea’s Kospi is up 0.4%

Australia’s S&P/ASX is up 0.9%

A new rumour out of Europe may have trimmed late gains at the end of US trading.  According to the FT, Eurozone members are split on how much of a haircut private creditors should take on their Greek debt holdings.  US futures are modestly lower, while the euro continues to slide.
