Asian markets settled higher on Monday, after the Wall Street Journal reported Chinese regulators moved closer to wrapping up probes on DiDi Global (DIDI) and two other tech names listed in the U.S. The report also noted they could soon lift new user bans, allowing these companies to operate in the country’s app stores once again.

Meanwhile, Japan’s Nikkei rose 0.6%, and South Korea’s Kospi was closed for a holiday.
