Stocks in Asia and US futures advanced Monday after China eased some virus curbs and Wall Street had its best week since November 2020.
Japanese and Hong Kong equities led gains. Nasdaq 100 contracts climbed more than 1% and S&P 500 futures were also up in a sign the bounce may have further to run. The S&P 500 wiped out its May losses and snapped a string of seven weekly declines as institutional investors rebalanced portfolios into the end of the month. European contracts climbed.
