Asian markets open in the red

Asian stock markets were mixed with Chinese markets higher, as RBA and BOJ left monetary policy unchanged.

Australia's benchmark ASX 200 shed 0.59 percent, weighed by a 0.92 percent drop in the energy subindex and a 0.78 percent decline in the financials subindex.

The Reserve Bank of Australia announced that it would leave cash rates unchanged at 1.5 percent, as labor market indicators remained mixed and inflation pressures were subdued, the central bank's official statement said.

Australia investors are also likely distracted by the upcoming Melbourne Cup, the horse race billed as "the race that stops a nation."

The Shanghai composite was up 0.26 percent after China's manufacturing PMI surveys were released, while the Shenzhen composite was 0.441 percent higher.

China's official manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) and the private Caixin manufacturing PMI, were out on Tuesday morning. Both surveys showed strong results, with the official survey snapping two months of flat readings with a forecast-beating 51.2 reading for October. The private Caixin survey also hit 51.2, showing the fastest rate of improvement since March 2011.

In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index was up 1.35 percent.

Japan's Nikkei 225 was down 0.15 percent after the Bank of Japan stood pat on monetary policy.

The Japanese central bank held rates at -0.1 percent and the pace of bond purchases unchanged, but cut its core consumer inflation forecast for the year ending March 2018 to 1.5 percent from 1.7 percent.

Across the Korean Strait, the Kospi was near flat, recovering from earlier losses made as a political crisis involving President Park Geun-hye weighed on investor sentiment.

Prosecutors launched an investigation after allegations that Choi Soon-sil, a friend of President Park's, had influenced state affairs, gained access to classified material and even benefited through non-profit foundations, Yonhap reported.

"It is important to recognize that South Korea already had economic challenges going into the latest political episode," said Frederic Neumann, co-head of Asian economics research at HSBC. These challenges included the restructuring of its shipping industry, potential tightening of the real estate market, and weak exports, he said.

"The latest political development just makes it harder for the government to respond in a timely fashion to the [structural challenges and] the pressure could head back to the central bank to help sustain growth in the medium term," Neumann added.

The won weakened against the dollar, fetching 1,141 won as of 11:26 am HK/SIN, above levels as low as 1,129 last week.

"Investor views remain split on how much Honda is capable of recovering its profitability. Yet we think this was a solid result, a first step towards normalization of the Takata problem and the start of normalization in sales in various regions," Takaki Nakanishi, equity analyst at Jefferies, said in a Monday note.

Panasonic stock was also under pressure, plunging 7.29 percent to 1,017 yen ($9.69) after it was initially untraded amid heavy sell orders.

The metal explorer announced it had received commitments from investors to raise A$747,000 ($568,420) through 19.7 million fully paid ordinary shares at an issue price of 3.8 cents a share.

On Monday, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) approved a document outlining its long-term strategy, signaling members were making progress on determining how to manage output levels. But oil futures fell as much as 3 percent during Monday's U.S. session, with traders unconvinced OPEC was moving toward an output freeze designed to reduce the global oil glut.

Crude prices recovered in Asian trade, Brent futures were up 0.6 percent, at $48.90 a barrel after settling at $48.30 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) futures were up 0.26 percent, at $46.97. It last settled in the U.S. at $46.86.
