亞洲股市暴跌,基準指數自5月份的高位已經累積下跌逾10%,投資者擔心環球經濟趨緩,拖累股市動盪,標準普爾500指數此前出現自 2009年2月以來最大跌幅。







U.S. Market
U.S. stocks fell the most in 32 months last week, erasing the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index’s 2011 advance, as investors fled equities on concern that the American economy is stalling and Europe’s debt crisis is intensifying.

The U.S. had its AAA credit rating downgraded for the first time by Standard & Poor’s, which slammed the nation’s political process and said lawmakers failed to cut spending enough to reduce record deficits. S&P dropped the ranking one level to AA+, after warning on July 14 that it would reduce the rating in the absence of a “credible” plan to lower deficits even if the nation’s $14.3 trillion debt limit was lifted. The U.S. was awarded the top credit ranking by New York-based S&P in 1941.

American employers added more jobs than forecast in July, easing concern the world’s largest economy is grinding to a halt.

U.S. consumer borrowing jumped in June by the most in four years, led by a gain in non-revolving debt, including student loans.

European Market
European stocks posted their biggest weekly loss since November 2008, becoming the first major region to enter a market correction, as concern escalated that the U.S.’s economic recovery is stalling.

U.K. producer prices rose in July as food and clothes costs surged, pushing the annual rate to the highest since October 2008.

Japan Market
Japanese stocks plunged by the most in more than four months, as concern the global economy is stalling triggered an equities rout that drove the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index to its worst slump since 2009.

Asia / Pacific Market
Asian stocks tumbled, with the regional benchmark index falling more than 10 percent from its May peak, as concern the world economy is weakening sparked an equities rout that drove the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index to its worst slump since February 2009.

Indian stocks tumbled on concern the global economy may lapse into recession even as accelerating inflation prompts the central bank to extend interest-rate increases.

Taiwan’s consumer prices rose at the slowest pace in three months in July as growth in food and transport costs moderated.
China/ Hong Kong
China’s stocks fell, capping the benchmark index’s worst week since May, as global equities markets plunged on concern slumping U.S. growth and Europe’s debt crisis will push the world economy into recession.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index fell the most in more than 18 months and its volatility index had the biggest surge on record, as exporters and commodity stocks tumbled amid a global equity rout triggered by signs the world economy is weakening.

Emerging Markets
Brazilian stocks gained, pushing the Bovespa index higher for the first time last week, on speculation the European Central Bank may buy Italian and Spanish bonds to halt the spread of the region’s debt crisis.

Brazil’s consumer inflation rose at the second-slowest pace in 11 months, cementing expectations the central bank will keep rates unchanged at its next meeting.

Bond Market

Treasuries tumbled, pushing up yields up from the lowest this year, after data showed the U.S. jobs market gained traction in July, easing concern the economic recovery is stalling.
