MARKET UPDATE |Saham Asia Indeks MSCI Asia Pasifik
Asian shares were a sea of red on Monday as the latest salvo in the Sino-U.S. trade war shook confidence in the world economy and sent investors steaming to the safe harbors of sovereign bonds, gold and the Japanese yen.

The Chinese yuan also came under pressure, with the dollar quoted up at 7.1710 and markets braced for more intervention from Beijing to support the currency.
MSCI™s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan shed 0.8%, and Australia 1.7%.
