Global stocks add to gains, taking Asia markets from a three-and-a-half month low, amid signs of progress in the U.S.-China trade war that could lead to a resumption in talks. President Donald Trump suggests the “little squabble” with China can be resolved with a deal, while Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is set to travel to Beijing soon to resume dialogue with Chinese officials. Wall Street futures suggest a weaker open for the Dow following weaker-than-expected April retail sales data.
