#AsiaPacific #world #stock #markets #Australia #China #Japan

Stock markets across Asia’s emerging economies fell Thursday as concerns about rising coronavirus cases in the developed world hammered investors’ risk appetite, driving capital into USD and other safe-havens.

Australian shares closed nearly 1% lower Thursday, tracking declines on Wall Street, as fresh economic data from the United States cast doubts about a global recovery.

The benchmark ASX 200 index closed 0.8% lower to 5,875.9. In New Zealand, the benchmark NZX 50 index edged 0.1% lower.

Japanese shares saw broad selling pressure in global stocks Thursday following worries about their high valuation, resurgent coronavirus infections and the notion of a slowdown in budding economic recoveries worldwide.

Nikkei share average lost 1.11% to 23,087.82, falling below Key support from its 25-Day MA at 23,217. The broader Topix lost 1.08% to 1,626.44.

China shares ended lower Thursday, after falling the most in more than 2 wks on renewed concerns over a coronavirus-led slowdown in global economic recovery.

At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was down 1.72% to 3,223.18, while the blue-chip CSI300 index was down 1.92%.
