Asian Markets End Mixed

Asian markets ended mixed after trading mostly lower Thursday as the ongoing political standoff over the budget in the U.S. kept investors on edge.

The Nikkei gained 1.1%. The Shanghai Composite fell 0.9% while the Hang Seng was down 0.4%. The Sensex ended flat and the S&P/ASX All Ordinaries slipped 0.1%.
