Stocks and Bonds: World


World stock indexes and commodities slumped on Tuesday as weak Chinese data revived fears about the effect of China''s economic health on the global economy and fuelled more market turmoil. Oil prices settled down sharply, with Brent falling back below $50 a barrel on concerns about global demand for petroleum and ending a three-day rally that pushed crude up more than 20 percent.

Wall Street ended lower on Monday and wrapped up its worst month since 2012 after comments from a senior Federal Reserve official heightened fears among investors of a potential US interest hike in September. Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer on Saturday said US inflation would likely rebound as pressure from the dollar fades, allowing the Fed to raise interest rates gradually.
Japanese stocks crumbled on Tuesday, extending the previous day's losses after surveys showed China's factory sector shrank for the sixth straight month in August while investors remained on edge ahead of key US data due throughout the week. Sentiment was also hurt by capital expenditures data that showed slowing investment in plants and equipment by Japanese companies.
The ratio of shares sold short in Japan hit a record high on Tuesday, as investors stepped up bets that the markets will fall further on concerns about a slowdown in China and possible US rate hike later this year. The ratio, which measures the amount of short-selling in the total selling, hit 41.0 pct, its highest ever. Although a high short-selling ratio is generally considered a sign of excessive pessimism in the market, investors are not sure if the worst is over yet.
The UK FTSE 100 slumped 3 percent on Tuesday, its worst one-day fall in over a week, with miners hit hardest after a slump in the manufacturing sector in China - the world's biggest commodity consumer. All but one FTSE 100 stock closed in negative territory on Tuesday, London's first trading day of the week after a public holiday on Monday.
European equities fell sharply on Tuesday, with miners slumping after weak manufacturing data from China renewed concerns for the economic health of the world's biggest metals consuming country. The FTSEurofirst 300 index of top European shares ended 2.8 percent lower at 1,392.57 points, with basic resources stocks plummeting 5.6 percent, making them the top sectoral losers.
Indian shares fell about 2 percent on Tuesday, dragged by banking and financial stocks after reports of HDFC Bank's steep base rate cut on Monday sparked fears that other lenders will be able to match it only at the cost of margins. HDFC Bank cut its base rate by 35 basis points to 9.35 percent from September 1 in a move to capture wider market share, according to media reports on Monday.
