ASIAN STOCK EXCHANGES FALL A 5% DRAGGED BY FALL IN WALL STREET

Tokyo / The uncertainty, including the panic, of investors has been the dominant trend of the session in the main Asian Stock Exchanges, which have closed with outstanding losses around 5%, dragged by the collapse of the eve on Wall Street.

Tokyo Stock Exchange, which came to lose more than 7% during the session, has managed to cushion the cuts in the last minutes, although its main index, Nikkei, was lost a 4.73% at the close.

Nikkei lost more than 1,000 points, something that was not remembered since 2016 with Brexit, and was dragged by fall yesterday in the New York market, which marked its worst fall in history points.

The fear of a more aggressive rise in interest rates in the United States that could have an impact on the inflation of the world’s leading economy led the Dow Jones to fall historically.

With this background little could do the Asian markets, which also suffered the depreciation of the yen against US dollar, a feared trend that harms Japanese exporters and ended up further undermining the mood of investors.

The cocktail formed by the lousy session of Wall Street and the rise of the Japanese currency offered many reasons for the pessimism to go through the Asian markets and also reach the Chinese Stock Exchanges.
