Asian markets in turmoil as Wall Street slides

Updated:7 months, 2 weeks ago IST

New Delhi, Feb 09 (ANI): It's likely to be a dramatic end for markets in Asia on Friday, with stocks across the region taking a beating once again tumbling to two-month lows. Wall Street rounded off Thursday with deep losses, prompting traders in Asia to start a sell-off at the opening bell. Japan's Nikkei and Hong Kong's Hang Seng both down more than 3 percent and shares were also being pummeled in South Korea and Australia. By mid-morning, China's main indices fell by around 6 percent. Many analysts now say this volatility isn't a one-off, but could instead mark a month of swings and roundabouts.
