Asian shares traded higher, taking the lead from Wall Street where shares closed at a record level overnight.

The Dow Jones finished over 18,000 for the first time after data showed the US economy grew at its fastest pace in 11 years in the third quarter.

The economy grew at an annual rate of 5% in the quarter, up from a previous estimate of 3.9%.

That momentum helped Japan's Nikkei gain 1.1%.
