Asian Markets End Weak; European Shares Little Changed

Asian markets see-sawed Thursday and ended weak, although some support was provided by a measure of China's factory activity that improved in October, rising to a seven-month high.

The Nikkei was up 0.4%. The Shanghai Composite fell 0.9% while the Hang Seng declined 0.7%. The Sensex slipped 0.2% and the All Ordinaries edged up 0.3%.
