Asian markets mostly traded low on persisting trade tension between
U.S. and China and on lower cues from overnight U.S. market. Investors
also remained cautious of upcoming key economic data in China.
However, some respite was seen on improved crude oil prices. Today (as
of June 29), Asian markets opened lower amid concerns over U.S. trade
policy. However, positive cues from Wall street’s last session restricted
the losses. Nikkei fell 0.34% and Hanseng grew 0.18% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed lower as concerns over
global trade continued to weigh on investor sentiment. Meanwhile,
investors remained cautious over a two-day European Union meeting on
migration policy that began on Jun 28.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed almost higher amid bargain
hunting. Gains in bank and technology stocks boosted the indices.
However, lingering concerns over trade dispute between U.S. and other
global economies capped the gains.
Indian equity markets slumped, dragged down by worries that the U.S.
President’s approach towards trading activities may prove to be
detrimental to global economic growth. Fall in domestic currencies to
record low further weighed on the markets owing to higher inflation and
widening fiscal deficit.

0.77% to close at 35,037.64 and 10,589.10, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-

was the major loser, down 2.51%, followed by S&P BSE Consumer
Durables and S&P BSE Energy, which fell 2.40% and 2.22%, respectively.
