Stocks Lower in Asia, Europe as Well

Stocks in Asia tumbled Monday, as shares of Chinese property companies plunged amid a probe into shadow bank Zhongzhi Enterprise Group. Japan’s producer price index (PPI) rising 2.3% last month to a 45-month high is also weighing on the region. In response, Japan’s Nikkei erased 0.5%, while China’s Shanghai Composite and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng lost 0.3% and 0.2%, respectively. Elsewhere, South Korea’s Kospi shed a marginal 0.04%.

European markets are also lower this afternoon, dragged down by oil and gas stocks ahead of the delayed Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC+) meeting. At last glance, France’s CAC 40 was just below breakeven, while Germany’s DAX was down 0.1%, and London’s FTSE 100 was off by 0.2%.
