Japanese shares gained Tuesday on hopes of additional US fiscal aid/relief/stimulus to bolster the world’s largest economy, as major countries break away from the impact of the coronavirus chaos.

The Nikkei 225 Index ended up 1.88% at 22,750.24. The broader Topix index rose 2.54%.

 Australian shares rose to a 3-wk high Tuesday, boosted by heavyweight financial stocks, after the country’s 2nd-most populous state reported fewer new C-19 infections, lifting investor sentiment.

As of 0106 GMT, the S&P/ASX 200 index rose 0.56% to its highest since July 22. The benchmark closed 1.76% firmer Monday.

In New Zealand, the benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index dipped 0.2% to 11663.72 points by 0111 GMT.

China shares ended higher Monday, turning around from early losses as data signalling slow factory deflation reinforced hopes of an economic recovery from the chaos-driven lockdown.

At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was up 0.75% at 3,379.25, after earlier falling as much as 0.57%.

The blue-chip CSI300 index was up 0.36%, clawing back from a 1.31% fall. The CSI financial sector sub-index ended 1.34% higher, the consumer staples sector added 0.11%, the Real Estate index jumped 3.08% and the healthcare sub-index closed 0.62% lower.
