Asian shares near 15-month high, Dollar soft on less hawkish Fed

In early trade, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.1 percent, staying near a 15-month high it touched on Monday, with South Korean shares hitting two-year highs. Japan's Nikkei dropped 0.8 percent, weighed by financial stocks, which were hurt by lower US yields and exporter stocks, which fell on the yen's gains against the dollar.
