Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 gained 0.4% in morning trading to 32,146.33. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 added 0.4% to 7,178.10. South Korea’s Kospi jumped 1.0% to 2,531.45.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng surged 1.1% to 18,041.53, while the Shanghai Composite slid 0.1% to 3,074.78. A major event of the week for markets is a speech later in the day by US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.

He is speaking at a Jackson Hole, Wyoming, event that’s been the setting for major policy announcements by the Fed in the past.

“Shares in Asia appear set to make gains, taking cues from the positive momentum in US markets,” said Stephen Innes, managing partner at SPI Asset Management.
