Títulos em venda acelerada na Ásia
October 11, 2018 -- Os mercados por toda a Ásia resvalaram na maior venda de ações e
obrigações desde fevereiro – uma reação retardada ao aumento da
semana passada das taxas de juro pela Reserva Federal dos EUA.
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.
