HONG KONG — Asian shares were mixed Monday with China buoyed by recent data indicating recovery, but other markets were unsettled by drops on Wall Street and the bailout of a crisis-hit Portuguese bank. 

Traders said the intervention by Portugal's central bank to inject 4.4 billion euros (US$5.9 billion) into the crisis-hit Banco Espirito Santo late Sunday had an impact on markets, as did the Dow's substantial sell-off last week.

Tokyo's Nikkei fell 0.31% or 48.61 points, closing at 15,474.50, Sydney dipped 15.5 points, or 0.28%, to finish at 5,540.9, and Seoul rose 0.35%, or 7.32 points, to end at 2,080.42.
