Meanwhile, Singapore stocks snapped three sessions of losses to gain on Monday, while most other Southeast Asian stock markets were little changed in thin volumes as markets in China and Hong Kong were closed for a public holiday.

Gains in financial and telecommunication sectors helped the city-state rise, with lender DBS Group Holdings gaining 1% and Singapore Telecommunications up 1.3%.

“Singapore is reacting in response to the strength in the U.S. markets on Friday,” Linus Loo, head of research at Lim &Tan Securities said.

U.S. markets rose on Friday after data showed the U.S. unemployment rate dropped to the lowest in almost 50 years, easing slowdown concerns.
