LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- Here are the latest trading levels for Asia's major stock markets: Tokyo (Nikkei Average) up 1.5% ; Hong Kong (Hang Seng Index) down 0.6% (at break) ; Shanghai (Shanghai Composite Index) up 0.3% (at break) ; Sydney (S&P/ASX 200) up 0.4% ; Seoul (Kospi) down 0.8% ; Mumbai (Sensex) up 0.3% Taipei (Taiex) down 1%
HONG KONG (MarketWatch) -- Hong Kong stocks headed lower Tuesday morning, with mainland Chinese banks as the main drag on the market. The Hang Seng Index fell 0.4% as state-owned investment bank CICC said August lending data may miss expectations, with bad loans on the rise and credit demand slowing, according to a report in the state-run China Securities Journal. Hong Kong-listed shares in the major mainland Chinese banks suffered substantial losses across the board, with China Merchants Bank Co. declining 1.6%, Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd. dropping 1.4%, Agricultural Bank of China Ltd. down 1.1%, China Construction Bank Corp. off 0.9%, and China Citic Bank Corp. lower by 0.8%. Also likely weighing on sentiment, China Construction Bank's chairman said Monday that the lender would focus on controlling credit risk after a rise in non-performing loans. Top-weighted stocks on the Hang Seng Index were weaker, as banking giant HSBC Holdings PLC gave up 0.7%, wireless carrier China Mobile Ltd. lost 0.3%, and Internet major Tencent Holdings Ltd. edged down 0.2%. However, most casino stocks bounced back following sharp declines in the previous day after Macau government reported a 6% fall in August gambling revenues compared to a year earlier. Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd. recovered 1.6%, Galaxy Entertainment Corp. rose 1.2%, and Sands China Ltd. rebounded 0.8%. Over on the Chinese mainland, the Shanghai Composite Index ticked up 0.1%.
LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- Japanese stocks bopped higher early Tuesday on the back of fresh yen weakness, though trade was relatively quiet with the U.S. markets out for the Labor Day holiday. The Nikkei Average climbed 0.4%, with the Topix up 0.3%, as Japan's currency depreciated further (the dollar rising to ¥104.35, up from ¥104.17 at Monday's close), much to the delight of exporters. Just as in the previous session, tech shares were the leading advancers, as Sharp Corp. rose 1.5%, Nintendo Co. added 1.2%, Murata Manufacturing Co. improved by 2.5%, Japan Display Inc. gained 1.6%, and TDK Corp. rallied 4.2%. Auto makers were mixed, however, with Honda Motor Co. flat, Nissan Motor Co. up 0.1%, and Toyota Motor Corp. 0.3% higher after announcing a solid 9% increase in its August new-car sales volume. On the downside, tea producer Ito En Ltd. tumbled 5% as its financial results confirmed weakness tipped in an earlier Nikkei report, with Ito En's quarterly profit down almost 70% from a year earlier. On Wednesday, the government was expected to announce a minor cabinet reshuffle, though several reports said the moves were unlikely to affect the market significantly.
LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- Australia stocks tipped lower in early Tuesday trading under the influence of weakness in the largest banks and miners, with the S&P/ASX 200 down 0.1%. Among financials, National Australia Bank Ltd. lost 0.3%, Macquarie Group Ltd. fell 0.5%, and Westpac Banking Corp. eased by 0.1%, though the regional lenders improved, with Bendigo & Adelaide Bank Ltd. up 1.5%, and Bank of Queensland Ltd. 0.5% higher. Over in the mining sector, shares of BHP Billiton Ltd. slipped 0.3%, Rio Tinto Ltd. retreated by 0.8%, and Oz Minerals Ltd. was down 0.9%, with weak Chinese manufacturing data out Monday helping drag down copper prices. But Atlas Iron Ltd. rose 0.9%, and Mt. Gibson Iron Ltd. was 0.7% higher, despite a two-year low for iron-ore prices. Power company Origin Energy Ltd. rallied 2.4% as Morgan Stanley raised its rating on the shares to overweight from equalweight, according to Dow Jones Newswires. And Qantas Airways Ltd. managed to improve by 1% despite an executive with Emirates airlines saying the UAE flag carrier had no plans to invest in its Australian partner, despite talk to the contrary. Stock in Seek Ltd. was down 0.9% as Bank of America-Merrill Lynch issued a note saying the job-ad website operator's shares looked expensive on a valuation basis at 29 times earnings, Dow Jones said. Later in the day, the Reserve Bank of Australia was slated to hand down its latest monetary-policy decision, with no change expected to the benchmark cash rate.
