Chinese shares fell for a 2nd session running Wednesday.

The Shanghai Composite index closed down 0.6% to 3,319.27. The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 0.7%. The smaller Shenzhen index lost 1.3%, the start-up board ChiNext Composite index fell almost 2% and Shanghai’s tech-focused STAR50 index dropped 2.2%​.

Japanese stocks finished higher Wednesday as investors bought shares of major exporters on the back of a slightly weaker yen, although sentiment was cautious due to a stalemate in talks over additional US economic stimulus.

The Nikkei 225 Index ended up 0.41% at 22,843.96, with the industrial and consumer discretionary sectors leading gains. The broader Topix rose 1.23%.
