China’s benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended at its lowest close since late July as investors sold off sectors seen as over-valued, and as the reported possible blacklisting of China’s largest chip maker by the United States hit tech firms.

At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was down 1.87% to 3,292.59, the lowest closing mark for the index since 30 July. It was the 4th straight day of losses for the Shanghai index, and its steepest 1-day drop since 24 July 24. The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 2.11%.

Japan’s Nikkei share average dipped Monday following a drop on Wall Street

The Nikkei dropped 0.50% to 23,089.95, while the broader Topix shed 0.42% to 1,609.74, with both the indexes falling from their 6-month highs marked last Thursday.

Australian shares finished higher Monday on prospects of 1st batches of a C-19 vaccine by early next year outweighed the extension of virus-driven lockdowns in Melbourne.

The S&P/ASX 200 index rose 0.3% to 5,944.8 at the close. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index rose 0.3% to finish the session at 11,859.45.
