Sensex inches towards 28K; Amtek Auto, HCC rally over 10%

10:30am Asia Update
Japanese and Chinese stock markets stood out against a mostly lackluster backdrop in Asia on Tuesday, with a deal to give global investors easier access to China's USD 3.9 trillion stock market partially offsetting worries about declining oil prices.

Chinese shares continued to outperform and were at three-year highs. They added 1.3 percent on top of the previous session's 2.5 percent surge after officials announced on Monday that a November 17 would mark the beginning of a tie-up that will allow global investors to buy Chinese stocks from Hong Kong.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan erased early losses and eked out a 0.1 percent gain. Japan's Nikkei stock average added 1.4 percent, extending gains as the yen turned lower in afternoon trade.

Sentiment was also boosted by the Bank Of Japan's move on Monday to purchase 38 billion yen (USD 331.2 million) of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), as part of its recently beefed-up economic stimulus campaign. The news was announced after markets closed on Monday, reports Reuters.
