Asian stocks finished the week on a high note, following Wall Street higher ahead of the U.S. jobs report. Still, traders exercised caution ahead of China's National People's Congress (NPC) this weekend, and meetings of the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of Japan next week. China's Shanghai Composite finished the day up 0.5%, Japan's Nikkei added 0.3%, and Hong Kong's Hang Seng climbed 1.2%. South Korea's Kospi, however, dropped 0.1%.

Stocks in Europe are also higher at midday, led by a rally in mining names. At last check, London's FTSE 100 and France's CAC 40 have each added 1%, while the German DAX is up 1.1%.
