Asian shares rise after buying mood on Wall Street ends week
TOKYO (AP) — Asian shares were mostly higher Monday, cheered by a wave of buying late last week on Wall Street that was spurred by strong U.S. jobs numbers and optimism over China-U.S. trade.
Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 edged up 0.4% in early trading to 23,439.13, while Australia's S&P/ASX 200 added 0.4% to 6,735.70. South Korea's Kospi edged up 0.3% to 2,087.92.
