Nikkei Asia300 falls, dragged down by Chinese equities

Index posts 15% gain in 2019

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- The Nikkei gauge for Asian shares outside of Japan edged lower on Tuesday following a pullback in Chinese companies despite a better-than-expected manufacturing data.

The Nikkei Asia300 index fell 0.3% to 1,390.66 in thin trading to trim its annual advance. Monetary accommodation by central banks around the world, combined with improved outlook on the U.S.-China trade relations, has helped the index post a 15% gain this year.
