Stocks in China notched big gains today, as traders followed Wall Street's bullish Wednesday lead. Enthusiasm over the People's Bank of China's (PBOC) latest stimulus efforts, along with expectations for a delayed interest rate hike by the U.S. Fed, contributed to the upbeat mood. On the mainland, recently beaten-down banking and energy stocks were among the top advancers. Elsewhere, exporters once again led the charge higher in Japan, while Seoul-listed securities extended the previous session's heady gains. By the close, China's Shanghai Composite surged 5.3%, Hong Kong's Hang Seng rose 3.6%, Japan's Nikkei climbed 1.1%, and South Korea's Kospi tacked on 0.7%.

European markets are also pointed higher at midday, bolstered by a report showing French business confidence at a four-year high. Meanwhile, an early rebound in crude prices is pushing resource stocks higher. At last look, London's FTSE 100 is up 2.4%, the French CAC 40 has jumped 2.8%, and the German DAX is nearly 3% higher.
