MARKET UPDATE |Saham Asia Indeks MSCI Asia Pasifik
Asian shares dropped for a second day, with energy and material companies leading declines, after Treasuries and U.S. equities fell on Federal Reserve Jerome Powell™s inflation and interest rate hike comments.
The MSCI Asia Pacific Index retreated 1.1 percent at 4:42 p.m. in Hong Kong, wiping out this week™s gains. Japan™s Topix fell 1.2 percent, ending a three-day rising streak, while Hong Kong™s Hang Seng Index lost 1.4 percent.
Asia™s rebound from lows reached earlier this month faltered as investors saw hawkishness in Powell™s latest comments. He expects a strong economy over the next two years, opening the door to four interest rate hikes in 2018.
