Asian stocks fall as worries about US debt rise



BEIJING (AP) – Asian stock markets tumble on Wednesday as the US government approaches a potentially devastating default on its debt.

Shanghai, Tokyo and Hong Kong refused.

Wall Street’s underlying S&P 500 plunged 1.1% on Tuesday after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said, “We’re not on target yet” on the deal. This followed a meeting Monday with President Joe Biden that ended without agreement.

“McCarthy’s comments threw cold water” on sentiment, Vishnu Varatan of Mizuho Bank said in a report. He said the fall in prices is “paying the price for premature optimism about the debt deal.”

The Shanghai Composite lost 0.8% to 3220.44 and the Nikkei 225 in Tokyo fell 0.6% to 30777.29. Hang Seng in Hong Kong shed 1.2% to 19,203.05.

Indian Sensex opened up 0.2% to 62,140.23 points. New Zealand and Bangkok have won, while Singapore and Jakarta have declined.

Republicans in Washington are pushing for cuts in aid to the poor and other spending in exchange for agreeing to increase the amount the government can borrow. Biden proposed a combination of cuts and tax increases for the richest Americans, which McCarthy rejected.

Without an agreement, the government would run out of cash to pay the bills around June 1, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said. This could cause a shock in the global financial system.

On Wall Street, the S&P 500 fell to 4145.58. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.7% to 33,055.51, while the Nasdaq composite lost 1.3% to 12,560.25.

The yield on two-year Treasury bonds increased to 4.34% from 4.32%.

Markets were already worried about the slowdown in global economic growth after raising interest rates in the US, Europe and Asia to curb rising inflation. Three high-profile bank failures in the US and one in Switzerland are also keeping the markets on edge.

Manufacturing and other areas of the US economy are struggling under the weight of higher rates.
