Asian shares mixed ahead of Trump address

Asian shares traded mixed on Tuesday with markets waiting on tenterhooks for the outcome of the two-day US-China trade talks.



US President Trump is all set for his prime-time television address later today with markets hotly anticipating tangible developments from both US-China trade negotiations and the partial government shutdown. The MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan slipped from early gains to close down -0.20%, dragged lower by declines in China and Taiwan, whilst in Japan the Nikkei rose +0.82%. Elsewhere Hong Kong’s Hang Seng closed marginally higher at +0.09% or 22.93 points.
