Futures on the S&P 500 Index rose 0.2%. Miners and travel shares led the Stoxx Europe 600 Index higher, while futures on the S&P 500 Index nudged up, signaling the underlying gauge will head toward a fifth record on Tuesday. In Asia, equities fell in Tokyo and climbed in Shanghai. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng benchmark increased despite continuing unrest in the city, further recouping some of last week’s 4.8% drop. Government bonds were mixed in Europe, while the pound held gains from Monday. Oil futures slipped for a second day.
