Australian shares finished lower Wednesday, dragged lower by gold miners on the back of weak bullion prices, while BHP outshone the broader market and hit a record high as brokerages upgraded its shares after the miner’s annual results.

The S&P/ASX 200 index fell 0.5% to 6,885.2 at the close, off a 1-yr high marked Tuesday. New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index edged 0.5% higher at 12,673.97.

Japanese shares fell Wednesday as investors booked profits after a recent rally drove them to a 30-yr high on expectations for a strong economic recovery.

The Nikkei share average edged down 0.58% to 30,292.19 from Tuesday’s high of 30,714.52. The broader TOPIX slipped 0.18% to 1,961.49.

Hong Kong stocks ended higher Wednesday, marking the 7th session running of gainers and extending a Bull run ahead of the reopening of Mainland markets after the Lunar New Year break, with sentiment lifted by optimism over global economic recovery.

The Hang Seng index rose 1.10% at 31,084.94, the highest close since June 2018, while the China Enterprises Index increased 1.60% at 12,228.63.
