亚洲股市星期一下跌 Asian Markets Fall

亚洲股市星期一下跌, 投资者由于担心中国制造业数据下跌和美国经济走势而抛售股票。

欧洲股市星期一下午涨跌互现。美国股指星期一开盘时在上星期五大跌之后略有上升。

星期一,日本等亚洲国家股市全面下跌,日经255指数和东证指数均下跌3%以上,韩国和澳大利亚股市也大幅回落。

之前恒生中国制造业指数5月份跌至49.2,是7个月以来的最低点。

投资者还担心美国联邦储备银行可能会因为连续传来的好的经济报告而削减旨在刺激美国经济增长的大规模购买债券计划。

Asian stock markets fell Monday, as investors continued selling on concerns about weak Chinese manufacturing data and the direction of the U.S. economy.

European stocks were mixed in afternoon trading and U.S. indexes edged higher as the week's trading opened in  New York. U.S. markets fell sharply on Friday.

Japanese stocks led the losses across Asia on Monday, as the benchmark Nikkei 225 index and the Topix index both lost more than three percent.  Indexes in South Korea and Australia also suffered significant losses.

The sell-off in Asia accelerated after an HSBC Chinese manufacturing index fell to 49.2 in May, the lowest mark in at least seven months.  

Investors are also concerned over speculation the U.S. Federal Reserve may begin scaling back its massive bond buying program aimed at stimulating the U.S. economy, after a series of positive economic reports.
