  • Almost a sea of red for Asian stock markets as at today’s Asia mid-session except for the China stock market where the China A50 has managed to record a modest gain of 0.38%
  • The S&P 500 e-mini futures has seen a negative follow through in today’s Asian session after a daily close of -0.84% printed in the overnight U.S. session. It has continued to decline by 0.5% to print a current Asian session intraday low of 2792 that has broken below the psychological level of 2800 and the 13 May 2019 swing low area.
  • The worst performers are the Kospi 200 and Nikkei 225 that have declined by -1.22% and -1.25% respectively. 20800 is an important technical level to take note on the Nikkei 225 as a break below it exposes further potential downside.
