Hong Kong, Sep 8 (AFP) Asian markets mostly fell todayfollowing a recent run of gains but Hong Kong and Shanghaitraders cheered data showing Chinese imports rose in Augustfor the first time in almost two years.Regional shares have enjoyed a strong run since the startof the month, fuelled by optimism about the state of the USeconomy and the prospects of borrowing costs being kept atultra-low levels until at least December.But the rally petered out today as investors put theirfoot on the brake.Tokyo was down 0.8 per cent in the afternoon but thestandout performer was Nintendo, which soared on news it haddeveloped an exclusive Super Mario game for Apple.Sydney lost one per cent and Seoul shed 0.2 per cent.Singapore, Wellington and Bangkok also suffered sharp losses."Volatility, or the lack thereof, is still the key driverin financial markets," Chris Weston, chief markets strategistin Melbourne at IG Ltd, said in an email, according toBloomberg News."The Fed are not going to raise rates this year if theytruly are data dependent and if they hike in December it wouldbe an admittance that they are more dictated by a calendar-based guidance."But Hong Kong was up 0.4 per cent by the break whileShanghai pared almost all its early losses to end the morningflat following the Chinese figures.China's customs department said August imports rose 1.5per cent on-year, the first increase in 22 months, whileexports fell less than expected thanks to weakness in thecountry's yuan currency.The figures marked a sharp turnaround from July and willraise hopes the world's number two economy and key driver ofglobal growth is stabilising after years of slowing growth.The economy grew last year at its slowest pace in a quarter ofa century.In Tokyo gaming giant Nintendo soared 18 per cent at onepoint after it announced with Apple that "Super Mario Run"would be available on the App Store this year. It ended themorning up 13.2 per cent.The news came after the global success of mobile gamePokemon Go, based other Nintendo characters, which has nowbeen downloaded about half a billion times.However, Japanese investors were left unimpressed byfigures showing the economy grew just 0.7 per cent on anannualised basis in April-June, well down from the 2.1 percent seen in the previous three months..
