Global stocks, dollar wobble on weak U.S. data


Asian shares struggled to find their footing on Tuesday after downbeat U.S. economic data contributed to an uninspiring session on Wall Street and pressured the dollar.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS edged up 0.05 percent after wavering for most of the early session.

Australian shares slumped 0.3 percent, in their first day of trade following the long Easter weekend that also closed many markets in Europe.

Japan's Nikkei .N225 skidded 0.8 percent in early trading, not helped by mixed economic data released before the market opened.
