Local shares up 0.3 percent in early trade.

Most Asian currencies weakened against the dollar.

Asian stocks hovered at a three-year high and the dollar rose early on Thursday after robust jobs data fuelled hopes that the U.S. nonfarm payrolls report would point to momentum building in the economy.
