HONG KONG - Asian shares were mixed on Thursday as investors brushed off another record close on Wall Street ahead of a European Central Bank (ECB) policy meeting and the release of closely watched US jobs data. 

The euro faced further selling pressure on expectations the ECB will further cut interest rates at its Thursday meeting and unveil other monetary easing measures to fend off deflation and support the economy.

Tokyo pared most morning gains to end flat, edging up 11.41 points to 15,079.37, while Seoul fell 0.65%, or 13.08 points, to 1,995.48 and Sydney slid 0.15%, or 7.93 points, to close at 5,436.90.
