Australian shares seesawed Monday, as investors remained cautious ahead of the central bank’s cash rate decision and Q-2 economic growth data expected this week to gauge the impact of the C-19 chaos domestically.

The S&P/ASX 200 index rose 0.2% to 6,083.60 by 0100 GMT

New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index slipped 0.6%, or 72.94 pts, to 12,020.58 as of 1230 GMT.

 Japanese shares bounced Monday, recovering from sharp losses seen in the previous session, as concerns about PM Shinzo Abe’s resignation were tempered by speculation that his possible successor could continue his current policies.

The benchmark Nikkei share average jumped 1.95% to 23,329.47 by the midday break, with 216 advancers on the index against 8 decliners.

The broader Topix gained 1.83% at 1,634.27.
