TOKYO, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Asian stocks rose in step with their global peers on Tuesday while safe-haven bonds retreated, after U.S. President Donald Trump softened his tone against China and predicted the two countries would be able to reach a trade deal.
In early European trade, the pan-region Euro Stoxx 50 futures were up 0.25%, German DAX futures rose 0.24% while Britain's FTSE futures were down 0.3%.
Trump said on Monday that Chinese officials had contacted their U.S. trade counterparts and offered to resume negotiations, an assertion that China declined to confirm.
His comments helped temper sharp losses in global markets after both sides announced new tariffs on Friday, in the latest escalation in the protracted trade dispute.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.3% after dropping 1.3% the previous day.
Japan's Nikkei rose 1%.
The Shanghai Composite Index rallied 1.5%, with an additional boost from data showing China's industrial firms returned to profit in July.
South Korea's KOSPI added 0.4%.
Equity markets may have found better footing for now but the longer-term outlook for riskier assets, buffeted repeatedly by trade concerns, remained shaky.
"There is still a large element of uncertainty regarding the U.S.-China trade dispute. It remains difficult to foresee a resolution, and this will continue to weigh on equity market sentiment," said Shusuke Yamada, chief Japan FX and equity strategist at Bank Of America Merrill Lynch.
"Apart from the trade war, the equity markets also have to keep an eye on Brexit proceedings, monetary policy of key players such as the European Central Bank and moves in the Chinese yuan."
China's onshore yuan nudged down to a fresh 11-year low of 7.1649 per dollar.
China has allowed the tightly-managed yuan to slide roughly 4% so far this month as trade tensions with the United States worsened. This has triggered fears of a global currency war, in which countries try to weaken their currencies in an attempt to soften the blows of a broader economic slowdown.
"It is clear that the trade conflict between the United States and China is getting ever more serious. The two may still opt to negotiate, but prospects for a quick resolution have diminished greatly as neither side can back down," said Yoshimasa Maruyama, chief market economist at SMBC Nikko Securities.
"The trade conflict only increases the torment on the global economy."
The dollar held gains made the previous day helped by a rebound in U.S. Treasury yields.
The dollar index versus a basket of six major currencies stood at 98.012, having risen about 0.5% overnight.
The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yield was at 1.523%, pulled back from a three-year low of 1.443% reached on Monday on the back of wide-spread risk aversion.
The Japanese 10-year government bond yield was up 2 basis points at minus 0.260% after plumbing minus 0.285% on Monday, its lowest since July 2016.
The greenback traded at 105.685 yen following a 0.7% gain on Monday, when it had brushed an eight-month low of 104.460.
The euro was flat at $1.1100 after losing 0.4% on Monday.
The Australian dollar, sensitive to developments in China, Australia's largest trading partner, dipped 0.25% to $0.6758, handing back most of Monday's gains.
Crude oil prices recovered some ground as the broader markets stabilised, trimming some of their significant losses the previous day on the prospect of crude from Iran, currently facing sanctions, hitting the market.
Brent crude futures were up 0.53% at $59.01 per barrel after losing 1% the previous day. U.S. crude rose 0.62% to $53.97 per barrel.
Oil prices fell on Monday after French President Emmanuel Macron said preparations were underway for a meeting between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and President Trump in the coming weeks to find a solution to a nuclear standoff.
