It was a relatively downbeat day for Asian stocks, with trading volumes light following the Easter weekend. China's Shanghai Composite fell 0.7%, and South Korea's Kospi edged 0.06% lower.

However, Japan's Nikkei broke from the trend, gaining 0.8% as a weaker yen boosted exporters. Hong Kong's Hang Seng was still closed for holiday, and European markets also remain shuttered.

How to collect 1 dividend check every day for LIFE

Did you know you could collect 1 dividend check every day the market is open? You could also do it starting with just $605! For me, I'm collecting 70 dividend checks every quarter…which averages around 1.1 dividend checks every business day. There's no trading behind this... no penny stocks or high-risk investments. All you do is buy and hold and you're set. There's no set up required either. If you start buying the dividend stocks I show you today... you could collect 1 dividend per day starting as early as this week. Click here for all the details.
