The Japanese benchmark, the Nikkei now recovers 16,175, down -4.87% versus -5.90% previous.

    Further, with improving risk sentiment, the greenback is also seen trimming losses against its major rivals, which also adds to the retreat in EUR/USD from near four-month tops. Meanwhile, the US dollar drops -0.16% to 96.60, reversing a dip to 96.30 region.

    Markets now await second-tier economic data in the German industrial production and trade balance figures due later in the upcoming session for fresh cues on the major. While developments surrounding oil and stocks will remain in focus.
