China shares finished lower Wednesday, as profit-taking in tech stocks outweighed gains in automakers on expectations of strong sales growth this year.

At the close, the Shanghai Composite index fell 0.46% to 3,517.31 and the blue-chip CSI300 index shed 0.29%. The CSI300 IT index lost 3.4%, while the STAR50 index tracking Shanghai’s tech-focused STAR Board, fell 1.9%.

 Japanese shares ended higher Wednesday, with transport stocks leading gains, as Wall Street’s tech-driven rally overnight and strong domestic earnings forecasts boosted market sentiment.

The Nikkei share average rose 1% at 28,646.50, while the broader Topix jumped 1.3% at 1,871.09.

Australian shares ended higher Wednesday, with financials leading gains, after the Reserve Bank of Australia reaffirmed it will hold rates at record low levels for several years.

The S&P/ASX 200 index ended 0.9% higher at 6,824.6. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index was + 0.4% at 13,091.21
