Asia markets mixed after Wall St decline

BEIJING (AP) — Asian stock markets are mixed after Wall Street sank, while Japanese and Chinese markets were closed for holidays. Hong Kong was little changed and Sydney advanced while New Zealand and Southeast Asia declined. Overnight, Wall Street’s benchmark S&P 500 index lost 0.7%, easing last week’s gains. Major tech stocks including Apple and Microsoft fell for a sixth day. Investors are watching corporate earnings and looking ahead to this week’s U.S. employment data. Most economic data point to improving conditions but markets are worried about renewed coronavirus outbreaks and a possible uptick in inflation.
