Markets

The late sell-off on Wall Street last night, spooked markets in Asia which dropped to two-year lows. “The Dow and S&P 500 are now technically in correction territory as they have both fallen over 10% from their highs. While such a correction was expected by many people, the pace of it is somewhat alarming,” said William O’Loughlin, local investment analyst, at Rivkin Securities in Sydney. Chinese markets – dominated by retail investors – were particularly hit. The Shanghai Composite crashed more than 4% with the Hang Seng down more than 3%. No Asian bourse was in positive territory. Safe haven buying of the yen saw the Nikkei lose more than 3%. It recovered slightly in afternoon trading, but it is still down around 9% on the week. US Treasuries, however, were little changed. The 10-year pulled back marginally to 2.83%. Stephen Innes, head of trading APAC at online multi-asset trader OANDA in Singapore, reckons that markets are hell-bent on a 3% yield. It is not the yield itself that is the problem, rather the pace that has caused all of the problems. “The rapidity of the moves has caught the markets by surprise, and we are going through the predictable panicked repricing of most asset classes,” he said. The proximity of the Lunar New Year holidays is not going to help. Expect to see traders close down positions with increasing rapidity next week.
