Asian Equities Mixed on Greece

Asian stock markets opened mixed on Thursday, as investors continued to monitor negotiations between Greece and its euro zone creditors, while a mixed finish on Wall Street and losses in oil prices hit capped sentiment.

Overnight, U.S. stocks closed narrowly mixed following a choppy day of trading. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 were little moved, while the Nasdaq closed up 0.3 percent.

Oil came under pressure on Wednesday, due to an industry report saying U.S. crude stocks rose from a record high. U.S. crude settled down 2.4 percent at $48.84 a barrel, while Brent crude futures were down $3 to $54.80 a barrel.
