HONG KONG - Asia's markets mostly fell Thursday, with investors unable to build on the previous day's advances after the S&P on Wall Street notched up another record. 

With few catalysts to drive trade the dollar retreated from seven-month highs against the yen, while the euro clawed back some losses after Germany dampened speculation that the European Central Bank (ECB) would unveil new easing policies.

Tokyo fell 0.48%, or 74.96 points, to 15,459.86, Sydney lost 0.47%, or 26.78 points, to close lower at 5,624.4 and Seoul ended flat, edging up 0.83 points to 2,075.76.
