Overseas, shares in Asia advanced amid hopes global tariff tensions were abating as the United States and Mexico made a deal to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement.

US stocks gained Monday, with the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq closing at records for a second straight session, as the market rallied on enthusiasm over a new trade deal between the US and Mexico.

On Monday, the United States and Mexico announced that a deal had been agreed upon after months of negotiations between the two countries over the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement. The new deal, which President Donald Trump has said would be called The United States-Mexico Trade Agreement, is expected to last 16 years and will be reviewed every six years pending its approval by Congress, according to US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

On the US data front, a measure of the US economy from the Chicago Federal Reserve slowed in July from June's robust performance, owed in large part to lighter output at the nation's factories. The Chicago Fed's index of national economic activity registered at a positive 0.13 last month, down from an upwardly revised positive 0.48 in June.
