Asia stocks close strongest month since January

Asian stocks rose on Thursday to clock their strongest performance in 10 months, as investor sentiment warmed on a relatively benign global interest rates outlook and signs of economic recovery.

Europe and Wall Street are also set to open higher with FTSE futures and E-mini futures for the S&P 500 index up about 0.1% each.

The MSCI Asia-ex-Japan stocks index (.MIAPJ0000PUS) was up 0.1% at 0507 GMT, gaining 6.9% so far this month, setting it on course to mark the best month since January.

Fidelity Asian Values Plc (LON:FAS) provides shareholders with a differentiated equity exposure to Asian Markets. Asia is the world’s fastest-growing economic region and the trust looks to capitalise on this by finding good businesses, run by good people and buying them at a good price.
