Most emerging Asian shares rose Wednesday, taking positive cues from a recovery in US and Chinese equities as falling bond yields eased concerns about surging inflation and the outlook for global economic recovery brightened.

China’s blue-chip shares closed higher Wednesday though the gains were capped by investor concerns of Beijing’s policy tightening as the economy recovers.

The blue-chip CSI300 index ended 0.66% higher, led by a 2.63% jump in its healthcare sub-index and a 1.94% gainer in the consumer staples sector.

The Shanghai Composite index closed -0.05% to 3,357.74.

Japanese shares were little changed Wednesday.

The Nikkei index closed + 0.03% to close at 29,036.56, while the broader TOPIX gained 0.11% at 1,919.74.

Australian shares closed lower on Wednesday.

The S&P/ASX 200 index finished 0.8% to 6,714.10, reversing the session’s gains of as much as 0.5%. 

New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index rose 0.9%, with Air New Zealand gaining the most with a 3.5% rise.
