Asian shares show mixed performance

On Tuesday, Asian stock markets were quite mixed, reacting to a flat close on Wall Street because market participants looked for the next catalyst following France's presidential election. Meanwhile, crude soared on hopes that OPEC supply cuts are going to be extended.

The South Korean stock market is unavailable due to Tuesday's presidential election, where liberal Moon Jae-in is widely supposed to become a winner.  

The surveys started at 6 am, and they’re going to close at 8 pm.  The winner’s supposed to be sworn in on Wednesday right after the Election Commission is expected to publish the official outcome.

On Tuesday, the Korean won moderately dipped, with the greenback buying 1,133.34 won.

South Korean shares concluded at a record peak on Monday.

Outside Japan MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks edged down 0.1% on Tuesday.

Japan's Nikkei N225 decreased 0.1%.

China's CSI 300 index rebounded 0.8%, Hong Kong's Hang Seng lost 0.1%.
