Asian markets fell after renewed fears of the Eurozone debt crises escalating after a weak Spanish bond auction garnered lesser than expected funds.
The Nikkei 225 was down by 1.06% at 9,716, while the Hang Seng was down by 1.11% at 20,564. The Shanghai composite however bucked the trend and was up 1.37% at 2,293.
Sentiments were also dampened as the hopes faded on quantitative easing (QE3). A suicide in Greece and the possibility of riots further escalated worries in the eurozone region.
