The S&P/ASX 200 edged down 0.40% compensated by Macquarie Bank's 3.58% leap after the bank's full-year revenue beat hopes. As for Australia's resources stocks, they managed to extend losses. For instance, Miner Rio Tinto tumbled 1.56% and crude companies Santos and Woodside declined respectively 2.47% and 2.13%.

The Hang Seng Index inched down 0.26% in Hong Kong, while on the mainland, the Shanghai Composite dived 0.33%.

By the way, Japanese along with South Korean markets were unavailable due to the Children's Day holiday.

Overnight, American stocks stood still, after the House of Representatives dared to pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. Meanwhile, energy stocks declined, following crude, hitting a five-month minimum.

Additionally, energy shares turned to be the key laggards of the days, after oil reached a five-month minimum on the back of worries of a glut in supply.
