Market today: Asian shares follow Wall St’s advance, fueled by cooler jobs data

0 Comments


Asian shares were largely higher on Monday after Wall Street ended last week with its best trading day in more than two months, buoyed by cooler-than-expected US employment data.

U.S. futures headed higher and oil prices rose.

The Japanese yen weakened slightly after swinging from a low of 160.25 to the US dollar to 151.86 late last week due to suspected government intervention. The dollar bought 153.93 yen, up from 152.90 yen.
