Asian equity markets mostly declined as investor sentiment was clouded
by fears of U.S. imposing fresh tariffs on $200 billion Chinese goods. The
public comment period on the issue comes to an end on Sep 6. Today (as
of Sep 07), Asian markets opened mixed. Ongoing trade concerns weighed
on market sentiments, while increase in crude oil prices boosted some of
the indices. Nikkei was trading down 0.93% and Hang Seng was trading up
0.60% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed lower amid ongoing
concerns over potential new U.S. tariffs on China and a sell-off in
emerging markets. However, reports that the U.S. and Canada have made
some progress in talks to revise the NAFTA boosted some investors.
As per the last close, U.S. markets closed mostly lower following sharp
decline in tech stocks. Less than expected rise in private sector
employment in Aug 2018 and sharp fall in crude oil prices also weighed on
investor’s sentiments.

close at 71.99 per dollar from the previous close of 71.75.

up from the previous close of $1.1629.
