Asian Stocks Near Two-Year Low as Fed Chair Spurs Risk-Off Mood
(Bloomberg) — Asian stocks tumbled, with the regional benchmark approaching a two-year low reached mid-July, as investors fled risk assets after the Federal Reserve signaled it will keep raising interest rates to rein in inflation.
The MSCI Asia Pacific Index slumped as much as 2.3%, the most since June 13, with technology, financials and industrials the worst-performing sectors. Key equity gauges in Japan and Taiwan led regional losses, sliding close to 3% each.
