* US sharemarkets rose on Monday with the Nasdaq above 5,000 points in the session for the first time in 15 years. Investors mulled mixed economic data but looked ahead to pivotal jobs data later in the week. At the close of trade, the Dow Jones was up by 156 points or 0.9% to record highs with the S&P 500 index up by 0.6% to record highs while the Nasdaq was up by 44.5 points or 0.9% to 15-year highs - just the third time ever it has closed above 5,000 points.
