US stocks fell on Monday as weak data on the housing market and services sector were the latest indications of worsening economic conditions, taking the S&P 500 below a key support level.

China shares jumped on Monday, with Hong Kong's index hitting its highest close in more than 3-1/2 years, on growing bets that the world's second-largest economy has turned a corner and as investors expect more growth-friendly policies.
