The FTSE 100 is called to open 8 points higher at 7424. Asian stocks advanced on optimism that the U.S. and China will declare another truce in their trade war at a presidential meeting on Saturday. The yen extended losses after the biggest drop since April. Equity benchmarks in Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong saw gains of almost 1%, and U.S. stock futures also climbed after reports that the current plan is for the U.S. to hold fire on hiking tariffs on another swathe of Chinese imports.
