Global Market

Asian shares took a beating and the yen raced to a seven-week high against the dollar on Monday, as emerging markets remained under pressure with the US Federal Reserve poised to continue tapering its stimulus and tighter credit conditions in China raising fears of a slowdown.

US stocks dropped for a second day on Friday and the S&P 500 posted its worst week since June 2012 as a selloff in emerging market assets fed through to wholesale pullbacks in equities.

European stocks suffered their biggest one-day slide in seven months on Friday and erased what was left of their January rally, as concern about economies and currencies in Latin America sparked a bout of profit taking.
