Global Market

Asian shares rose on Friday while the US dollar struggled to regain traction after downbeat US economic data pushed it to a nearly three-week low against the euro.

US stocks advanced on Thursday, erasing earlier declines as investors discounted weaker-than-expected data on consumer spending and the labor market, but a disappointing outlook by Cisco Systems kept gains in check on each of the major indexes.

European shares inched lower in early trade on Thursday, halting their week-long rally, with Nestle falling after warning about its sales outlook.
