Asia Markets: Asian markets end mostly lower as China’s tech stocks slump

The Shanghai Composite SHCOMP, -1.00% closed down 1%, while the tech-heavy China Shenzhen ChiNext Composite 399106, -1.96% tumbled 2.6%. Those move came after tech stocks helped drive a selloff for Wall Street on Tuesday, led by Micron Technology Inc.
