Asian Markets Recover Following Wall Street

Asian markets headed higher on Tuesday, recovering from the previous session’s losses after commodities and shares on Wall Street rebounded.

US shares bounced back from big losses last week, when the Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged over worries about the global economy.

Oil prices fell in early trade after rising over 4% overnight on declining stockpiles and drilling activity.

In Australia, the benchmark S&P/ASX 200 index was up 0.6% to 5,096.20 points.
Trading is lighter than usual with the region’s biggest market, Japan, closed until Wednesday for public holidays.
