Market Recap- Global Market Overview

The start of the week saw a downward trend in Asia-Pacific markets. The Hang Seng index in Hong Kong experienced a significant drop of nearly 2%, with setbacks in basic materials and consumer cyclical stocks primarily attributing to this decline. The real estate sector also contributed to the decline, with Country Garden Holdings. They are a prominent real estate firm, leading the losses on the Hang Seng Index.

In Japan, the Nikkei 225 index fell by 1.21%, closing at 32,059.91, while the Topix index experienced a 0.98% dip, ending at 2,280.89. Anticipation is growing for Japan’s upcoming release of second-quarter gross domestic product figures on Tuesday, along with July’s inflation data set to be released on Friday.

South Korea’s Kospi index witnessed a 0.79% decline, concluding the day at 2,570.87, and the Kosdaq index performed worse with a 1.15% loss, closing at 901.68. These declines extended the losing streak for both indexes to three consecutive days.

In the United States, the past week concluded with mixed market performance. The Nasdaq Composite closed Friday with a 0.6% decline.

While the Dow Jones Industrial Average managed a 0.3% gain, primarily driven by significant advances in Chevron and Merck & Co.
