The trading on Asian markets rose on Thursday as investors are encouraged by President Donald Trump’s less combative tone in his first speech to Congress, which sent Wall Street markets to new high, while the growing bets on a U.S. rate hike this month buoyed the dollar.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose by 0.5%, while Japan’s Nikkei rose by 1.3% to a 14-month high.
