Tokyo stocks lost 0.23 percent Friday following a weak slate of Japanese data while investors were also spooked by renewed Ukraine-Russia tensions. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index eased 35.27 points to finish at 15,424.59, while the Topix index of all first-section shares fell 0.22 percent, or 2.77 points, to 1,277.97. Shares sank on claims that Russian forces were inside Ukraine helping support pro-Kremlin separatists who have been fighting against Kiev's rule since April.

Britain's top share index ended slightly higher on Friday, with stronger pharmaceutical stocks on renewed merger and acquisition talks outpacing a sharp decline in retail stocks after another profit warning by Tesco. AstraZeneca, which added the most points to the bluechip FTSE 100 index, rose 2 percent on talk of further take-over interest from Pfizer following an abortive $118 billion take-over attempt in May.
European shares eked out small gains in thin, choppy trade on Friday, helping one key euro zone index of bluechips record its biggest monthly rise since February. Most European bourses closed off their morning highs, however, after euro zone inflation data slightly cooled market speculation about fresh monetary stimulus by the European Central bank, a key driver behind the market bounce over the past three weeks.
Lahore Stock Exchange (LSE) has conducted an awareness session for investors of the region which was attended by a large number of stock investors from different cities.

He also explained the rights and responsibilities on part of investors, brokers and listed companies as provided in the different jurisdictions like Companies Ordinance, SECP Act, CDC, NCCPL and Regulations of the Stock Exchanges.
Indian stock, bond and currency markets were closed on Friday for a local holiday. Trading will resume on Monday. On Thursday, the BSE index rose 0.29 percent after earlier hitting a record high of 26,674.38. The NSE index rose 0.23 percent. The rupee weakened to 60.4950/5050 per dollar versus Wednesday's 60.45/46 close. The benchmark 10-year bond yield closed steady at 8.56 percent.
Sri Lankan stocks hit more than three-year high on Friday, led by large cap and banking shares as low interest rates and continued foreign buying into risky assets boosted sentiment, brokers said. The main stock index ended up 0.61 percent, or 42.33 points, at 7,034.09, its highest close since August 16, 2011. Up to Friday's close, the index had gained 18.96 percent this year.
Hong Kong stocks ended flat Friday as forecast-beating second-quarter US growth data was offset by increased tensions between Russia and Ukraine. The Hang Seng Index edged up 1.06 points to 24,742.06 on turnover of HK$81.33 billion ($10.49 billion). Regional markets have enjoyed a recent rally but investors took fright at claims that at least 1,000 Russian troops had entered Ukraine to back up pro-Kremlin separatists fighting Kiev's rule.
