Asia shares subdued, dollar pins hopes on U.S. GDP

Asian shares got off to a subdued start on Friday, while the dollar held near two-year highs against the euro on speculation that data later in the day will show the U.S. economy outperforming the rest of the developed world.

The rise in the yen and some mixed Japanese economic data nudged the Nikkei down 0.7 percent. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan eased 0.1 percent. Kospi Index fell 0.6 percent. S&P/ASX 200 dropped 0.2 percent.

The mood might lighten later on Thursday should data on U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) prove as upbeat as some now expect.
