Asian shares ticked up in early Tuesday trade, supported by Wall Street gains although sentiment was tempered ahead of the U.S. midterm elections, the first major electoral test of President Donald Trump's big tax cuts and hostile trade policies.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.15 percent at 491.78 while Japan's Nikkei gained 0.5 percent, a day after both fell more than one percent.

On Wall Street, the S&P 500 gained 0.56 percent, with financials such as Berkshire Hathaway supported by strong earnings.
