Disappointing earnings from Amazon and Visa dragged US stocks lower in afternoon trading on Friday in a broad selloff led by consumer discretionary shares. Amazon tumbled 10.3 percent to $320.70 after reporting an unexpectedly big loss for the second quarter, citing greater expenses on investments. With more than 7 million shares changing hands in the first 45 minutes of trading, volume was already above the average for the past 10 days.

US stocks finished a quiet session mostly flat on Thursday as earnings painted a mixed picture of the economy, though the S&P 500 sett another record closing high. The latest economic data failed to impress buyers. US claims for initial jobless benefits fell to a seasonally adjusted 284,000, the lowest since mid-February 2006. New home sales declined 8.1 percent in June, the biggest drop in almost a year. The PHLX housing sector index lost 2.7 percent, marking its biggest one-day drop since February.
Tokyo stocks rose 1.13 percent Friday to close at a six-month high after a healthy US jobless claims report boosted the dollar against the yen, sending exporter shares higher. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 173.45 points to 15,457.87, its best finish since late January, while the Topix index of all first-section issues rose 0.90 percent, or 11.49 points, to 1,281.35.
British lenders who focus on the domestic market outperformed a slightly negative FTSE 100 index on Friday after strong results from Royal Bank of Scotland and solid economic growth data. The FTSE, down 0.2 percent on the day but still up 0.8 percent on the week, succumbed to profit taking in late trade as Russia accused Ukraine of having shelled across the border, reviving investor concerns about the conflict there.
Weak German economic data and a slump in the shares of luxury goods group LVMH hit European stock markets on Friday. Equities also extended losses after Russia said Ukraine had targeted Russian law enforcement officers by shelling across the border from eastern Ukraine, where government forces are fighting pro-Russian separatists.
Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) has directed all investment banks to use their complete and legal names, eg "ABC Investment Bank Limited" instead of abridged names, eg "ABC Bank" as the use of abridged name can incorrectly portray them as commercial banks in the eyes of the general public. The SECP''s direction is based on the rationale that the nature of business and regulatory framework for commercial banks and investment banks are totally different.
India's broader NSE index fell on Friday after hitting a record high for a third straight day as investors took profits in bluechips such as ICICI Bank , while IT outsourcing firms declined after Wipro's US dollar revenue growth lagged rivals. Tata Motors slumped the most in nearly six months after unit Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) cut prices of three models in China in response to a probe in the auto industry.
