Asia-Pacific Stocks Lower on Inflation Staying Power




Asia-Pacific stocks moved mostly lower overnight on the back of higher energy prices and inflation concerns.

In Tokyo, the Nikkei (^N225) fell more than 1%, extending losses for an eighth consecutive session, while the Hang Seng (^HSI) dipped 0.4%. The Shanghai Composite (000001.SS) is closed until Friday due to a holiday.

Traders remain concerned that new Japanese PM Fumio Kishida could be outlining a redistribution plan that includes higher taxes, including on capital gains.
