Asia Stocks Mostly Higher in Choppy Trade

Most Asian stocks pushed in and out of positive territory following a choppy path Wednesday, even as Japanese equities dropped following a weak lead from Wall Street and a stronger yen.

The Nikkei was down 0.6% at 12:45 a.m. Tokyo time. The Shanghai Composite lost 0.4% while the Hang Seng recovered earlier losses to edge up 0.2%. Australia's S&P/ASX All Ordinaries also moved out of the red zone, adding 0.1% while Mumbai's Sensex opened 0.4% higher.
