Asia Markets: Asian markets mixed, as Eisai weighs down Nikkei

Trading was mixed in Asia-Pacific stock markets early Thursday, as slight declines in Australia, China, Hong Kong and Japan were being offset by bigger gains in the region’s emerging markets like South Korea, Indonesia and Singapore.

Trading cues were lacking as investors responded to cross-asset shifts like an overnight pullback in the dollar and Treasury yields as well as a rebound in oil. S&P 500 futures ESU8, -0.26% were down 0.2%, but futures for the tech-heavy Nasdaq NQU8, -0.90% were down nearly 1% following the deep plunge in Facebook stock FB, +1.32% in after-hours trading Wednesday.
