Morning MarketsTF
Most major Asia-Pacific equity markets rose on Monday as jitters over North Korea eased but still linger. Japan's equity market which had been closed on Friday for a holiday played catch-up and fell on Monday. Korea's Kospi Composite rebounded from Friday's selloff and Hong Kong shares jumped led by Internet giant Tencent.

From the FloorTF
Risk sentiment has rallied after Friday's plunge, sparked by a poor US CPI showing, but headline risks remain numerous with central banks struggling with weak inflation against a tumultuous political backdrop.
