Asian shares mostly lower

- +

Asian markets closed mostly lower on Tuesday ahead of the release of key US data later as a strong lead from Wall Street was offset by profit-taking, while Chinese shares were hit by fresh liquidity concerns. 

Tokyo jumped 1.44%, or 213.92 points, to 15,051.60 and Seoul added 0.81%, or 15.81 points, to close at 1,964.86.

However, Hong Kong lost 0.32%, or 71.36 points to end at 22,317.20, Shanghai gave up earlier gains and closed 2.04% lower, shedding 42.47 points to 2,034.22, and Sydney eased 0.12%, or 6.4 points, to 5,433.8.
