Hong Kong shares jump as trade deal news boosts sentiment

Casino shares jump ahead of President Xi's visit to Macao

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Hong Kong shares jumped the most in two months on Friday on reports that U.S. President Donald Trump had approved a phase one trade deal with China, 18 months after the two countries began their trade war.

Positive sentiment toward risk assets also intensified on the prospect of a decisive victory for Prime Minister Boris Johnson in elections, paving the way for the U.K. to leave the European Union next month.
