GLOBAL MARKETS-Stocks buoyed by deal to avert U.S. govt shutdown

Asian shares gained on Tuesday as investors hoped a new round of U.S.-China trade talks would help to resolve a dispute that has dented global growth and some corporate earnings. Market sentiment also got a boost on news U.S. lawmakers had reached a tentative deal on border security funding that could help avert another partial government shutdown due to start on Saturday. Spreadbetters expected European stocks to track Asia and open higher, with Britain's FTSE gaining 0.25 percent and Germany's DAX and France's CAC each adding 0.5 percent.
