 Most Asian stocks rose after Jerome Powell's testimony in Congress

Asian markets closed sharply on Thursday after US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell hinted that interest rates could be cut later this month, leading to a rally in US equities. However, optimism in the market has somewhat diminished due to continued geopolitical tensions in the Middle East, where it was reported that Iran tried to capture a British tanker earlier in the day. The country's Revolutionary Guards denied the allegations, saying there had been no confrontations with foreign ships in the past 24 hours.
