HONG KONG — Asian markets were mixed Thursday after US data showing the world's top economy grew much more than expected in the second quarter was offset by late profit-taking.
The dollar moved narrowly in Asian trade after briefly hitting a near four-month high and then retreating against the yen in New York as the US growth figures were tempered by a guarded Federal Reserve report.
Tokyo's Nikkei gave up early gains to end 0.16% lower after a recent rally helped it to a six-month high. The index lost 25.46 points to 15,620.77. Sydney added 0.18%, or 10.01 points, to close at 5,632.9 and Seoul lost 0.31%, or 6.49 points, to 2,076.12.
