Asian markets are playing catch up with U.S. markets, which soared on Friday following bullish jobs data.Japan’s Nikkei is up 1.06%.

Korea’s Kospi is up 0.10%.

Australia’s S&P/ASX is up 1.08%.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng is up 0.51%.

China’s Shanghai composite is up 0.39%.

This rally is occuring despite the ongoing stalemate in Greek debt swap talks, which seem to be making little progress and could potentially push the country to a default.

U.S. futures, however, are trading lower with Dow futures down 23 points.
