•Rising Asian stocks: Asian markets climbed with the benchmark MSCI Asia-Pacific Index reaching a 13-month high and the Indian Sensex climbing 1.3 percent to hit a 52-week high. The plummeting dollar is encouraging investors to pour more money in emerging markets like China and India, which have outpaced the rise in gold, despite the precious metal's new high.
