China’s blue-chip index finished Tuesday at the highest mark in 13 yrs, as investors were reassured by a quicker economic recovery following a containment of a resurgence of locally transmitted COVID-19 infections.
The blue-chip CSI300 index ended up 2.19% at 5686.25, the highest closing level since 15 January 2008.
The Shanghai Composite index was up 2.01% at 3,603.49, the biggest daily gainer in a month. The smaller Shenzhen index ended up 2.44% and the start-up board ChiNext Composite index was higher by 1.714%.
Japanese shares closed higher for a 3rd session running, after hitting fresh 30-yr highs, as strong corporate results and progress in vaccine rollouts raised expectations of a quick economic recovery.
The Nikkei share average ended 0.4% higher at 29,505.93, while the broader Topix index inched up 0.08% at 1,925.54.
