    [$$] Asia-Pacific technology stocks regain poise

    An initial dip for Asian technology stocks in line with falls seen during the US session appeared to dissipate as more bourses in the region came online on Wednesday. The falls for energy stocks in Asia came after oil prices plunged again on Tuesday in the wake of comments from US President Donald Trump affirming support for Saudi Arabia. Sydney’s S&P/ASX 200 index fell 0.6 per cent after dipping more than 1 per cent and touching its lowest level in more than two years as energy stocks shed 2.8 per cent and the key mining and financial segments dropped 2.3 and 0.5 per cent, respectively.

    China Stocks Lead Global Losses as Tech Rout Hits Fragile Market

    The CSI 300 Index slid 2.3 percent, with technology shares leading declines after another sell-off in the U.S. That also dragged on Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index, which lost 2 percent as all but two of its 50 members declined. Investors in China have been stung by a myriad of factors this year, including a trade war with the U.S. that has helped send the equity benchmark down 20 percent. Uncertainty continues to swirl around the dispute and whether any progress will be made when presidents Xi Jinping and Donald Trump meet on the sidelines of the G20 in Buenos Aires.
