Asian shares head higher, although Hong Kong falls sharply


Asian shares are mostly flat-to-higher following the strong U.S. jobs report on Friday and a manufacturing PMI survey out of China that pretty much tells us what we already know - that the country's economy is slowing. Still, Hong Kong stocks have suffered badly, with the Hang Seng dropping 1.6%.

Volumes are low due to market holidays in Japan and the U.K.

Gold and oil are +0.6% as investors keep an eye on the escalating tensions in Ukraine.

China +0.05%, India +0.7%.
