Asian shares take cue from Wall Street

- +

Asian markets mostly rose Monday following a rally on Wall Street as attention turns to the release of key data from Japan and the United States later in the week. 

The yen eased slightly against the dollar in early currency deals in response to worse-than-expected Japanese industrial output figures that raise the possibility of further monetary easing by the country's central bank.

Tokyo jumped 0.90%, or 131.80 points, to 14,827.83, Sydney climbed 0.52%, or 27.9 points, to 5,394.8 and Seoul added 0.23%, or 4.61 points, to 1,985.61.
