Asian markets extend losses on Thursday, Asia Dow Index (ADOW) slides 0.66 per cent

  • The Hang Seng pulled back from the session lows of 26,825 and was last seen trading at 27,142, down 0.61 per cent for the session.

Most of the Asian stock markets were trading lower for the second day running, as cautious investors stayed on the sidelines after the new proposed extradition law with mainland China drew massive street protests in Hong Kong. At 8.45 AM GMT, the Nikkei, Sensex and the Taiwan Taiex were down about half a per cent, while the Shanghai Composite and Australia’s ASX 200 were trading flat.
