Stocks in Asia settled mostly higher today, boosted by Wall Street's positive Tuesday finish and firming oil prices. However, Shanghai-listed stocks reversed early gains to end in the red. By the close, Hong Kong's Hang Seng gained nearly 1%, South Korea's Kospi added 0.3%, and China's Shanghai Composite shed 0.4%. Markets in Japan are closed for holiday.

European stocks are broadly higher at midday, led by strength in resource names. Miners are extending their gains to a second session, while a bounce in Brent crude futures is supporting the energy sector. At last check, London's FTSE 100 is up 2.2%, France's CAC 40 has added nearly 2%, and Germany's DAX is 1.9% higher.
