Global Markets In Turmoil After Dow Plunges 1,175 Points
Fears of rising interest rates spooked the US markets with the Dow erasing all of its gains made in 2018. 

The S&P 500 dropped 4.1 per cent, its biggest loss since 2011. The NASDAQ Composite too decline 3.8 per cent and closed at 6,967 points. 

In Asia most indices declined with the Japanese Nikkei down 2.5 per cent, while the Topix was down 2.11 per cent and Kospi down 1.5 per cent. 

The SGX Nifty was suggesting a cut in the Nifty of 250 points, which could take losses so far since the Budget to a near 6 per cent. It would be interesting to see whether it stays that way for most part of trade.
