Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks advanced for a third day, while commodities and higher-yielding currencies rallied, as Australian unemployment fell, European leaders meet on an aid package for Greece and Chinese inflation unexpectedly slowed.

More than four shares rose for each one that fell today on the MSCI Asia Pacific excluding Japan Index, which was up 3.2 percent this week by 4:22 p.m. Singapore time. The Australian dollar strengthened against all 16 of the most-traded currencies. Copper advanced as much as 3.8 percent and oil 0.8 percent. Standard & Poor’s 500 Index futures gained 0.7 percent and Europe’s Dow Jones Stoxx 600 Index was up 0.6 percent.

Investor sentiment improved after Australian employers added the most workers in more than three years in January, the fifth straight monthly increase, according to the statistics bureau in Sydney. European Union leaders may lay the groundwork today for a precedent-setting aid package for Greece, while China’s inflation gained 1.5 percent in January, slower than a 1.9 percent increase in December.

“People are more optimistic for the time being and a bit happier the way the world is panning out,” said Tim Schroeders, who helps manage $1.1 billion at Pengana Capital Ltd. in Melbourne. The employment data “exceeded expectations. We still need confirmation that a plan to save Greece is going to take place in the next 24 to 48 hours.”
