Asian shares tumbled, as investors dumped risky assets, rattled by growing concerns about the global economic recovery and the eurozone's future. The MSCI Asia Pacific index shed 1.4 % with Japan's Nikkei 225 Stock Exchange falling 2% to a fresh 2012 intraday low. Tokyo's broader Topix index slid 2.1% to levels last seen in late 1983. South Korea's Kospi Composite index dropped 2.3 percent while Australia's S&P/ASX 200 index slid 1.6 percent. Chinese stocks were also weaker, as the slowing mainland economy weighed on sentiment. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index slid 2 percent, while China's Shanghai Composite index dropped 1.5 percent. Risk aversion was heightened by a U.S. jobs reading on Friday that renewed concerns about a U.S. economic relapse while China's slowing manufacturing production and dismal European reports on factory activity sparked concerns about global growth. The U.S. jobless rate rose for the first time in nearly a year to 8.2% in May, while the smallest increase in payrolls for a year fueled concerns that the U.S. recovery has lost momentum. More»

European stocks rose, extending the biggest weekly rally in a month, and the euro strengthened after Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti said most of the region’s leaders support sales of joint bonds. French 10-year yields fell to an all-time low and oil advanced for a second day. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index (SXXP) added 0.5 percent at 9:55 a.m. in London and Standard & Poor’s 500 Index futures jumped 0.3 percent. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index (MXAP) retreated 0.3 percent, heading for a fourth week of losses on concern Chinese banks will miss loan targets. The euro appreciated 0.4 percent to $1.2581. The French 10-year bond yield fell to a record 2.422 percent. Oil gained 0.5 percent and copper climbed 0.6 percent. The majority of EU leaders at a Brussels meeting this week backed joint euro-area bonds, Monti told Italy’s La7 television station yesterday. This week’s gains snapped three weeks of losses that drove equities to their cheapest valuations relative to earnings this year. “There’s an air of inevitability that we’ll get euro bonds,” Donald Williams, chief investment officer at Platypus Asset Management Ltd. in Sydney, which manages about $1 billion, said in an interview with Susan Li on Bloomberg Television’s “First Up.” “Germany is going to have to compromise more than it was willing to a few months ago. Ultimately there will be some resolution there and the markets will start to head higher again.” More than $4 trillion was erased from the value of global equities in the first three weeks of the month as concern deepened Greece will abandon the euro, driving valuations of shares in the MSCI All-Country World Index down to 12.9 times reported earnings, the lowest since Dec. 30. European leaders failed to come up with a plan to resolve the debt crisis at a summit this week. The Stoxx 600 has advanced 1.7 percent this week, the biggest gain since April 20. Logica Plc, an Anglo-Dutch computer services provider, and Nexans SA (NEX), a maker of cable and wire, rallied more than 5 percent today as analysts upgraded the shares. The increase in S&P 500 futures indicated the U.S. equity gauge will extend the largest weekly advance in more than two months. The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan final index of consumer sentiment for May is due for release today. The gauge climbed to 77.8, the highest since January 2008, from 76.4 the prior month, according to the median forecast of 60 economists surveyed by Bloomberg. The euro’s gain versus the dollar pared its fourth straight weekly decline, the longest run since January. The 17-nation currency rose 0.4 percent versus the yen, trimming five weeks of losses, the most since October. The Dollar Index (DXY), which tracks the U.S. currency against those of six trading partners, fell for the first time in four days, dropping 0.2 percent. Oil in New York jumped to $91.09 a barrel. Iran and world powers agreed to hold a new round of talks about the Persian Gulf nation’s nuclear program next month after failing to bridge differences during two days of negotiations in Baghdad that ended yesterday. European Union sanctions banning purchases of Iran’s oil takes full effect on July 1. Copper advanced for a second day. The S&P GSCI gauge of commodities rose 0.4 percent, led by gains in corn, wheat and cotton. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index (MXEF) was little changed, rising less than 0.1 percent. The gauge has fallen 0.5 percent this week, poised for a 10th weekly decline, the longest string of losses since 1994. The Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.7 percent today. China’s largest banks may fall short of loan targets for the first time in at least seven years as an economic slowdown crimps demand for credit, three bank officials with knowledge of the matter said. Indonesia’s Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) sank 2 percent, the sharpest loss since Nov. 1 and the most in Asia, Bloomberg reported. More»
