Koersval waart door Azië

Graphic News

October 11, 2018 -- Beurzen in heel Azië kelderden in de grootste uitverkoop van aandelen en obligaties sinds februari – een late reactie op de verhoging van de
referentierente, vorige week, door de Amerikaanse Centrale Bank.

Japan’s Topix index was down 3.5 per cent, putting it on track for its heaviest one-day fall since March, while Taiwan’s Taiex tumbled 6 per cent.

The rout began on Wednesday with major U.S. stock markets plunging. Tech stocks, in particular, fell hard, as the Nasdaq fell 4.1 per cent to approach “correction” territory.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 fell 3.2 per cent and 3.3 per cent, respectively, with all three indexes taking almost half their losses in the last two hours of the trading day.
