Asian Markets along with European and American peers are trading in green Wednesday morning on the backdrop of an upbeat US home sales data yesterday which displayed inherent strength in the US economy coming back above the pre 2008 levels. The chances of June rate hike are increased further. Markets would eye Fed Chair Janet Yellen's speech, who is also due to speak on Friday, which is also the concluding day for the Ise-Shima G7 Summit being held in Japan. Once the G7 summit is out of the way, markets will be focusing whether Tokyo may look to postpone a sales tax hike and implement fiscal stimulus steps.
