Overseas, Asian stocks are trading lower on Friday as a batch of softer U.S. economic data took some of the steam out of Wall Street, but also boosted bonds in a big way while slugging oil prices in a boon for the inflation outlook. Both Brent and U.S. crude slid almost 5% on Thursday to four-month lows in a move that was blamed on economic and supply concerns.

In US, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq managed to eke out tiny gains on Thursday while the Dow Industrial Average ended slightly lower with pressure from tech and retail bellwethers Cisco and Walmart after disappointing forecasts. Shares of Cisco Systems tumbled as the communications and networking technology company cut its full-year revenue and profit forecasts on slowing demand for its networking equipment.

U.S. President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to resume high-level military communication, according to both countries.
