Asia-Pacific markets mostly climbed higher on Tuesday, even as U.S. Big Tech stocks sold off in favor of other sectors such as banking and energy.

Tech darling Nvidia dropped 6.68% on Monday and was one of the biggest contributors to the Nasdaq’s losses. Information technology was the S&P 500’s biggest declining sector for the day, falling more than 2%.

Investors in Asia will assess South Korea’s consumer sentiment index for June, as well as Japan’s service sector producer prices.

Consumer confidence in South Korea increased in June, with the index rising to 100.9, as compared to 98.4 in May. This comes amid growing optimism on current living standards and future household income, as well as domestic economic conditions.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 gained 0.19% while the broad-based Topix increased 0.7%. South Korea’s Kospi gained 0.38% while the small-cap Kosdaq was up 0.35%.

Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 rose 0.47% in early morning trade.

Hong Kong Hang Seng index futures were at 18,045, higher than the HSI’s last close of 18,027.71.
