Asia shares up after S&P500 record

- +

Asian markets mostly rose on Monday following a record close on Wall Street that was fuelled by upbeat US data, while Tokyo was boosted by a weaker yen. 

The euro sat around a three-month low against the greenback following big gains for Euro-sceptic candidates in European Parliament elections, while traders were also spooked by a fall in an index of German business confidence.

Tokyo shares closed up 0.97%, or 140.35 points to finish at 14,602.52 and Sydney rose 0.36%, or 20.013 points, to 5,512.8 while Seoul slipped 0.34%, or 6.82 points to 2,010.35.
