Asia markets traded mixed, with the Nikkei continuing its third straight session of gains, likely getting a boost from a weaker yen and better-than-expected Japanese economic data.
The Nikkei 225 jumped 1.71 percent, or 297.83 points, to end at 17,672.62, following the release of Japan's third-quarter gross domestic product (GDP), which showed the economy grew 2.2 percent year-on-year, beating a Reuters poll estimate of 0.9 percent.
The yen remained weak against the dollar early in Asia, with the dollar fetching 107.52 yen as of 3:06 pm HK/SIN, compared with levels around 104 on election day in the U.S. last week.
Down Under, the benchmark ASX 200 closed down 0.47 percent, or 25.04 points, at 5,345.7, weighed by its materials subindex, which was down 1.31 percent, and its financials subindex, which fell 0.53 percent.
Major gold miners were also lower; Newcrest Mining was down 7.08 percent, Northern Star Resources slipped 9.16 percent and Evolution Mining shed 9.65 percent. The ASX All Ordinaries Gold index was 7.94 percent lower as gold's appeal as a safe haven continued to lose traction after Trump's win.
