Australian shares ended flat Tuesday, weighed by banking stocks as minutes from the central bank’s recent policy meeting did not provide a clearer direction on further policy measures.

The ASX 200 index ended 0.08% lower to 5,894.8. In New Zealand, the benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index ended 0.2% lower to 11,770.75.

Japanese shares closed lower Tuesday as a stronger JPY pressured exporters and investors booked profits after a 3-day rally in the run up to the ruling party election.

The benchmark Nikkei share average ended down 0.44% to 23,454.89, the broader Topix lost 0.62% to 1,640.84.

China stocks ended higher Tuesday, as upbeat Chinese economic data and coronavirus vaccine hopes lifted risk appetite.

The blue-chip CSI300 index rose 0.8% at 4,688.48, while the Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.5% at 3,295.68
