Asian investors have had a lot to take in over the past two weeks. First there was Article 50 to formally begin Brexit. Then a closely watched meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and China's President Xi Jinping that saw the two countries agree to a 100-day plan for more trade talks.

Besides the strain of Brexit on Europe, elections later this year in France and Germany will further test the European Union. And despite the "tremendous progress" President Trump says he has made with China, the long-term relationship between the two superpowers remains uncertain.
