    On the other hand, South Korea’s KOSPI declined 1.2 percent, Singapore’s Straits times fell 0.6 percent and  Hong Kong’s Hang Seng slipped 0.2 percent.

    European shares were tumbled in intra day trade. London’s FTSC-100 decline 1.5 percent, France’s CAC plunged 1.7 and Germany’s DAX fell one percent.
