Chinese blue-chip shares rose for a 6th straight day to close at a more than 5 yr highs Tuesday, as retail investors rushed to join the officially sanctioned Bull market, but stocks pared gains late in the day as some traders booked profits.

The smaller Shenzhen index rose 1.71% and the start-up ChiNext Composite index added 2.44%. 

The S&P/ASX 200 index settled down 0.03% to 6,012.9. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index ended 0.8% higher,

Japanese stocks ended lower on Tuesday after domestic household spending dropped at the fastest pace on record in May due to the coronavirus lockdown, although heavyweight SoftBank Group’s sharp gains helped stem the benchmark’s losses.

The Nikkei average fell 0.44% to 22,614.69, snapping a three-session winning streak after marking its highest close since early June Monday. The broader Topix fell 0.34% to 1,571.71.
