TOKYO, 25 Dhu-AlHijjah,1437 AH, 26 September,2016 , SPA — Asian shares began the week under a cloud on Monday after losses on Wall Street, and as investors’ attention turned from central banks to American politics ahead of the first U.S. presidential debate, Reuters reported.
MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan extended early losses and was down 0.8 percent by afternoon, while Japan’s Nikkei stock index ended down 1.3 percent.
Wall Street logged weekly gains but ended with solid losses on Friday. Still, the S&P 500 managed to record its best weekly performance in more than two months after the U.S. Federal Reserve held interest rates steady on Wednesday.
