In Asia-Pacific, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 was down 0.62% and ended at 7,029.2, extending losses from the day before.
The country saw its business activity contract at a faster pace in November, according to flash estimates from Judo Bank. Australia’s composite purchasing managers index slid to 46.4, down from October’s 47.6.
South Korea’s Kospi recorded its fourth straight day of gains, closing 0.13% higher at 2,514.96 and the small-cap Kosdaq advanced 0.17% to finish at 815.98.
Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index reversed earlier losses to gain 0.92% in its final hour of trading, and the mainland Chinese CSI 300 index was 0.48% up, ending the day at 3,561.52.
Japan’s markets are closed due to a public holiday.
Overnight in the U.S., all three major indexes rebounded from Tuesday’s losses, with the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield also briefly falling to its lowest level in two months.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury briefly fell to 4.369% Wednesday morning, the lowest level since Sept. 22. It later recovered and was last little changed at 4.41%.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.53%, while the S&P 500 climbed 0.41%. The Nasdaq Composite advanced 0.46%.
