Shanghai shares ended lower Thursday after data showed that the country’s new bank loans last month fell more than expected to their lowest in a year on tightened loan quotas.

The blue-chip CSI300 index rose 0.1% at 4,908.46, while the Shanghai Composite Index slipped 0.1% to 3,338.

The tech-heavy startup board ChiNext rose 0.7%, while the STAR50 index climbed 1.3%.

Japan’s Nikkei share average closed near a 29.5 yr high Thursday as technology shares tracked their US peers higher.

The benchmark Nikkei settled 0.68% higher at 25,520.88, after hitting its highest level since 5 June 1991 earlier in the session.

The broader Topix slipped 0.16% to 1,726.23 and snapped 7 consecutive sessions of gainers.

Australia’s benchmark share index paused to refresh Thursday, after a 5-day rally, as losses in energy, financial and travel-related stocks offset a strong showing by tech firms.

The S&P/ASX 200 index was trading flat by 2345 GMT. In New Zealand, the benchmark was up 0.3% and on track for its 8 consecutive session of gainers
