Australian shares Thursday recovered from the heavy sell-off in the prior session, with bank and technology stocks leading gains, though a drop in commodity prices weighed on miners and energy sectors.

The S&P/ASX 200 index was up 0.3% at 6,952.1 by 0030 GMT.

Japanese shares erased early losses Thursday, led by chipmakers tracking overnight gains by US peers, but investors refrained from making active bets awaiting fresh cues after most companies announced their earnings.

The Nikkei share average edged up 0.07% at 28,063.39 by 0201 GMT, while the broader TOPIX was down 0.18% to 1,898.64.

Hong Kong stocks fell Thursday, as energy and materials firms retreated after Beijing vowed to curb sky-high commodity prices by stabilizing the market.

The Hang Seng index dropped 0.7% to 28,382.02 points, while the Hong Kong China Enterprises Index lost 0.4% to 10,613.27.
