Asian markets trade higher in early deals on Thursday

Asian equity benchmarks are trading up in the early deals on Thursday following the surge in crude oil prices overnight, in reaction to reports that OPEC members have reached a deal to cut oil production for the first time since 2008. Meanwhile, Japan's Nikkei share average rose as investors took heart from a weaker yen and rallying oil prices after OPEC's unexpected agreement to trim crude output.
