Asian stock markets continued their downward slide to close lower on Monday. 

They've gone backwards after rallying last week on the back of central bank decisions in the US and Japan to keep interest rates on hold. 

The region's biggest market, Japan's Nikkei 225, ended the trading day down 1.3%. 

In China, the Shanghai Composite fell 1.8% while Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index slid 1.6%.

South Korea's Kospi and Australia's ASX 200 both closed flat.


Asia's stock markets slide

Asia's stock markets have fallen at the start of the new trading week after last week's rally sparked by the US and Japanese central banks' decisions to keep rates on hold. 

The region's biggest market, the Nikkei 225, was down 0.9% as investors sold off shares in exporters - hurt by a stronger yen - and energy stocks were dragged down by lower oil prices. 

In China, the Shanghai Composite fell 0.8% and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong was down by 0.7%. 

Analysts say oil prices will have a big influence on the direction the markets take for the early part of the week. 

Opec is due to meet for informal talks, with hopes that members will agree on a production freeze. A failure to do so could push prices lower. 

The Kospi in South Korea is down 0.6%, while Australia's ASX 200 is flat.



Asia stocks lose steam

Asian shares lost momentum on Friday, with the region's biggest market, the Nikkei 225, down by 0.3% as a stronger yen hit the outlook for Japanese exporters' profits.

In China, both the Shanghai Composite and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong were also down by 0.3%. 

The losses come after global stocks rallied when the US and Japanese central banks decided to keep their easy-money policies in place. 

The Kospi in South Korea ended flat and only Australia's ASX 200 managed to clock some gains, wrapping the day 1.1% higher, seeing its biggest weekly gain in two months.


Nikkei down on stronger yen

Japanese shares traded lower on Friday as the strengthening yen hurt exporters' prospects. 

The Nikkei 225 is down 0.2% with most of the country's main car makers trading lower. 

Chinese markets traded sideways with both the Hang Seng in Hong Kong and the mainland Shanghai Composite flat just after midday. 

South Korea's Kospi is also flat while in Australia, the ASX 200 is up by 1%, led by financial stocks still rallying on Wednesday's Fed decision not to raise interest rates.
