Asian stocks were mixed after the European Central Bank introduced aggressive easing measures to stimulate the euro-zone economy.

The ECB is the first major Central Bank to introduce negative interest rates, which will see it become cheaper for banks to lend money to businesses.

Japan, Hong Kong and Australian stocks initially rose in reaction before giving up their gains in later trade. The muted response comes despite a strong rally on Wall Street.
