Banks led the gainers, with the CSI300 banks index up 2.6%.

Japanese shares finished higher Tuesday as investor sentiment was buoyed by a tech-led overnight rally on Wall Street, and a softer JPY propped up exporters.

The benchmark Nikkei average gained 1.7% at 22,573.66 while the broader Topix jumped 2.14% at 1,555.26.

Australian shares rose Tuesday, as a tech-led overnight rally on Wall Street and upbeat US data helped investors look past grim domestic retail sales print and a central bank prediction the economic recovery would be bumpy.
