Asian stocks are mixed with slumping Tokyo and Shanghai

On Friday, Asian markets offered quite mixed performance, pointing mostly higher,  although Shanghai and Tokyo went down because commodity-dependent stocks declined on a stronger greenback that makes imports priced in the US currency less affordable.

Japan's Nikkei 225 sagged 0.19%.

South Korea's Kospi managed to earn 0.77%. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.70%. As for the Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong, it was intact, while the Shanghai Composite headed south 0.2%.

Overnight, American shares demonstrated records peaks because market participants appreciated the publication of better than expected initial jobless claims reports, while the Fed minutes kept driving market sentiment amid a dent in hopes that the major US bank would lift rates for a total of three times this year.

The American economy kept showing signs of a rebound in the second quarter, right after initial jobless claims inched up less than expected.
