Stocks in Asia traded higher Thursday morning amid positive developments on the U.S.-China trade front. Markets also expect further easing measures by the European Central Bank when it announces its decision on interest rates later today.

The Nikkei 225 rose 0.86% in early trade, while the Topix added 0.55%. Shares of Yahoo Japan jumped more than 4.5% in early trade after reports that the company will launch a takeover bid for online clothing retailer Zozo.

U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that increased tariffs on 250 billion dollars worth of Chinese goods that were set to kick in on October 1 have now been delayed to October 15 “as a gesture of good will.”
