Asia markets underperform

On Tuesday, Chinese and Taiwan equities underperformed because due to Boxing Day some regional markets were unavailable, while others faced their first action of the week after Christmas.

The Shenzhen Composite tumbled 0.6%, the startup-heavy ChiNext lost 0.8%.

The Shanghai Composite, including more state-owned companies than the Shenzhen indexes, stood still with Monday's finish. Additionally, Chinese authorities approved fresh developments, thus raising Shanghai free-trade-zone-related equities.

At the same time, Taiwan's Taiex followed Monday's mostly flat performance, including a 0.7% sag due to the fact selling built into late morning. Additionally, Taiwan Semiconductor dived 0.9%, Apple product assembler Hon Hai, also dubbed Foxconn, headed south 1.2%.

In Japan, Nikkei Stock Average slumped 0.2% having set its latest 26-year closing peak on Monday. However, department stores rallied solidly on Tuesday right after Takashimaya reported firm fiscal third-quarter revenues, increasing the likelihood of higher consumer spending.
