China shares rose more than 1% Tuesday, underpinned by gainers in new energy and healthcare stocks, as investors cheered upbeat corporate earnings.

 Japan’s TOPIX ended lower Tuesday, dragged down by stocks that went ex-dividend, while the Nikkei inched up as investors bought back the benchmark after its underperformance against TOPIX following the Bank of Japan’s decision to only buy TOPIX-linked ETFs.

The TOPIX lost 0.78% to 1,977.86, while the Nikkei index came + 0.16% to end at 29,432.70.

Australian shares fell Tuesday, investors were cautious about placing big bets as more COVID-19 cases were reported in Queensland after the state capital Brisbane was put under lockdown.

The S&P/ASX 200 index finished 0.9% lower to 6.738.40. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index gained 0.6% to finish at 12,446.76.
