BENGALURU: Most emerging Asian currencies rose marginally on Wednesday against a softer dollar as increased optimism that China and the United States might reach a trade deal whetted investor appetites for riskier assets. 

Officials of the two nations continued trade talks in Beijing for an unscheduled third day, amid signs of progress on issues including purchases of U.S. farm and energy commodities as well as increased access to China's markets.
