Global Markets:

Asian stocks rose on Tuesday, following gains on Wall Street the previous day. This positive sentiment was buoyed by easing concerns about political instability in Europe. Investors also awaited comments from several Federal Reserve officials scheduled to speak later.

The primary focus in Asian markets remained the Reserve Bank of Australia`s (RBA) policy decision. While the RBA is expected to maintain current interest rates, markets are keen on any hints regarding a potential future rate cut cycle in Australia.
