Australian shares fell Wednesday, dragged down by financials and miners, as global investors fretted over whether a potential spike in US inflation could force the Fed to raise rates earlier than planned.

The S&P/ASX 200 index dropped 0.7% to 7,044.9, settling lower for the 2nd session running. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index slipped 0.6% to 12,564.2.

Japanese stocks ended lower Wednesday, tracking an extended sell-off in Asian shares, as investors refrained from placing big bets amid the Bank of Japan’s absence in supporting the market despite a sharp drop in the previous session.

The Nikkei share average fell 1.91% to 28,147.51. The broader TOPIX lost 1.47% to 1,877.95.

China and Hong Kong shares slipped Wednesday, dragged down by real estate firms after Beijing held a meeting on property tax to curb rampant speculation in the housing market, although tech stocks rebounded from a sharp drop in the previous session.

At the midday break, the Shanghai Composite index was down 0.01% to 3,441.42 and the blue-chip CSI300 index was down 0.28%.

Chinese H-shares listed in Hong Kong rose 0.2% to 10,452.06, while the Hang Seng Index was down 0.37% to 27,910.60.
