Australian shares lost for a 3rd session running Monday, as deepening tensions with China, its largest trading partner, following a move by Beijing to impose anti-dumping tariffs on Australian wine imports spooked investors.

The S&P/ASX 200 index settled 1.3% lower to 6,517.8, New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index ended 1% higher on the day.

Japan’s benchmark Nikkei closed lower Monday but posted its biggest monthly gainer in nearly 27 years, as optimism over progress in COVID-19 vaccine development boosted risk sentiment.

The Nikkei share average ended 0.79% lower to 26,433.62, snapping its 4 straight sessions of gainers. The index marked a 15% jump in November, its biggest monthly gainer since January 1994.

The broader Topix marked its best month since April 2013, but closed 1.77% lower to 1,754.92.

China’s blue-chip index scaled a near 5.5-yr high Monday, led by gains in traditional industries, as upbeat factory activity data showed continued recovery in the world’s 2nd-largest economy.

The CSI300 index rose 1.3% at 5,045.01 pts, its highest since 18 June 2015, while the Shanghai Composite Index gained 1.1% at 3,444.84 pts.

Leading the gains, the Shanghai SE50 index, which tracks the 50 most representative traditional stocks on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, climbed 2% to its highest since February 2008.
