Asia opens week, month higher

Asian stock indices opened the first session of the week and month higher as China's services and manufacturing sectors improved, while shrugging off mass protests in the US and some modest US-China escalation on Hong Kong. 

 

Earlier Chinese data showed the manufacturing PMI at 50.6 in May, while the services PMI rose to 53.6. 

 

Japan's TOPEX rose 0.49%, while Nikkei 225 rallied 1.18% to 22,135. 

 

China's CSI 300 surged 2.12%, while Shanghai powered up 1.65% to 2,899. 

 

Hong Kong's Hang Seng rose 3.30%, while South Korea's KOSPI added 1.5% to 2,060. 

 

New Zealand's NZX 50 rose 0.24%, while Australia's S&P/ASX 200 climbed 0.83% to 5,803.
