Asian markets experienced varied results on Tuesday with subdued trading, following minimal movement in U.S. stock indexes ahead of the release of inflation data.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 initially gained but was trading slightly higher at 38,194.38, up less than 0.1%.

Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 declined 0.2% to 7,731.40. South Korea’s Kospi saw marginal change, edging up less than 0.1% to 2,726.76. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng showed a slight increase of less than 0.1% to 19,115.78, while the Shanghai Composite fell nearly 0.3% to 3,139.89.

Investors were focused on inflation indicators to assess economic growth trends and the strength of the dollar.

“Today is significant for both Germany and the USA as they release critical economic data,” noted Luca Santos, market analyst at ACY Securities, referring to consumer price data from Germany and producer costs in the U.S.

“Despite their different focuses, both indices provide insights into how inflation is impacting society,” Santos added.

On Monday, the S&P 500 edged down less than 0.1% to 5,221.42, fluctuating between small gains and losses throughout the day. It remains close to its record set in late March, within 0.6% of that high.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 0.2% to 39,431.51, while the Nasdaq composite rose 0.3% to 16,338.24.

Incyte, a biopharmaceutical company, saw its stock surge 8.6% after announcing a plan to repurchase up to $2 billion of its shares. This move, aimed at returning cash to shareholders, is part of a trend among major companies seeking to enhance earnings per share for remaining shareholders.
