Asian shares broadly reversed to trade lower Monday as higher Crude Oil prices raised inflation worries, while Singapore and Malaysian stocks rose on local corporate news.

China stocks fell the most in more than 7 months Monday, as a lower-than-expected 2021 economic growth target from Beijing sparked concerns that Chinese officials could tighten policy to rein in lofty valuations.

The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 3.5% to 5,080.02, marking its worst day since 24 July 2020. The Shanghai Composite Index lost 2.3% to 3,421.41.

Japanese shares ended lower Monday as some investors adjusted positions ahead of the end of the fiscal year.

The Nikkei share average fell 0.42% to close at 28,743.25, while the broader TOPIX edged down 0.14% to 1,893.58.

Australian shares finished higher Monday led by gains in heavyweight resource stocks on stronger commodity prices.

The S&P/ASX 200 index rose 0.4% to finish at 6,739.60. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index fell 0.8% to end the session at 12,085.18
