Australian shares closed lower Friday after the central bank downgraded its outlook for the national economy.

The S&P/ASX 200 index was down 0.6% to 6,004.8 by the end of trade. The index gained 1.3% on the week. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index fell 1% to 11,646.6 pts.

 Japanese shares ended lower Friday, a raft of lacklustre domestic earnings and caution ahead of Key US jobs data weighed.

The benchmark Nikkei share average fell 0.39% to 22,329.94. The broader Topix lost 0.2% to 1,546.74.

Japan stock markets will be closed Monday for a public holiday.

China stocks finished lower Friday after The Trump Administration unveiled a plan to ban US transactions with ByteDance’s TikTok and Tencent-owned WeChat, but posted weekly gains on upbeat trade data.

The blue-chip CSI300 index dropped as much as 2.6% before ending 1.2% lower to 4,707.93, while the Shanghai Composite Index lost 1% to 3,354.04 .
