SYDNEY: Most Asian stocks traded higher Friday despite a lackluster session for U.S. shares amid concerns over a delayed Sino-American trade deal. Treasuries steadied and the dollar held gains.

Equities in Japan and China outperformed, with modest gains seen in Hong Kong. Earlier, the S&P 500 spent most of the session fluctuating between gains and losses in thin trading, before edging lower at the close.
