Asian equities head south on high bond yields

Asian equities head south on high bond yields

On Wednesday, Asian equities pulled further back from record maximums because the recent ascend in global bond yields put pressure on equities. At the same time the evergreen buck was intact ahead of the Fed’s policy verdict.

MSCI's index of Asia-Pacific equities contributed to yesterday’s losses and dived 0.2% having hit a record maximum on Monday.

Besides this KOSPI acquired 0.3% in South Korea, while Japan's Nikkei sank 0.1%.

The Hang Seng lost 0.55% in Hong Kong, while Shanghai dipped 0.6%.

Wall Street that has recently reached a series of striking maximums, has led a global equities winning marathon for the last year due to firm world surge powering higher corporate earnings as well as stock valuations.

However, the recent ascend in American long-term bond revenues to four-year peaks have poured cold water on the soar.

American equities dived for a second straight day, with the Dow reporting its biggest two-day decline since September 2016, suppressed by healthcare shares and gaining bond yields.
