spies working under diplomatic cover. stocks across asia rallied overnight following a strong showing on wall street. the asian markets tacking on solid gains thanks to an easing of concerns about a trade war between china and the u.s. that was largely the same reason wall street opened the week with the dow surging nearly 670 points. the major u.s. averages all posted their best one day gain since august of 2015. looking ahead to today's trading, stock futures are all pointing toward a positive open. and there is speculation this morning that north korea's leader is making a surprise visit to china which would be his first foreign trip as a leader. that speculation is driven mostly by the appearance of this large motorcade in beijing. there has also been heavy security at locations where north korean leaders have stayed in the past. bob woodruff is there. >> reporter: right here a large motorcade was seen speeding
