Asia stocks edge up on US growth data cues; dollar steady
Asian stocks edged higher on Wednesday reflecting upbeat US growth news while oil steadied after a sharp drop overnight as OPEC struggled to agree on a glut-draining production cut.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.1 percent in early trades. It is poised to post a second consecutive monthly loss.

Early action in Asian stocks was just as guarded with Australia down 0.16 percent , the Nikkei flat and South Korea up 0.2 percent.

The US economy grew faster than initially thought in the third quarter, notching its best performance in two years.

The relatively upbeat data pushed major US stock indices higher with major benchmarks closing between 0.2 to 0.6 percent up. Stock futures edged higher in Asia.

Oil slumped by roughly 4 percent on Tuesday before bouncing somewhat as most analysts concluded the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries would cobble together a deal at its meeting in Vienna on Wednesday to cut production to some extent. The meeting starts at 1000 GMT.

Brent futures were flat around USD 46.38 per barrel while US crude gained 0.3 percent to USD 45.39 per barrel.
