Global stocks are pointing towards a positive open this morning as worries from around the world begin to ease and strong economic data takes over. The Dow Jones had another bullish trading session yesterday, driven by US consumer confidence which has hit a six-year high. Today will see the hotly anticipated Candy Crush maker King trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker KING at a price of $22.50, raising $500m yesterday which values the company at more than $7bn.
Asian stocks were relatively quiet throughout the night with the Nikkei 225 and the Hang Seng ending their sessions little unchanged as no key piece of data drove the markets in any significant direction.
