BANGKOK (AP) - Asian stock markets mostly rose today boosted by more evidence the U.S. economic recovery is gaining traction.

U.S. government figures released Tuesday showed a better-than-expected 3 percent rise in factory orders in February, the largest increase since September. In addition, March sales reports from auto makers were solid.

Benchmark crude oil fell back below $97 per barrel. The dollar rose against the euro and the yen.
