Asia Shares Euro Pressured By Turkish Crisis


SYDNEY – Asia share markets slipped and the euro hit one-year lows on Monday as a fresh fall in the Turkish lira fueled demand for safe havens, including the U.S. dollar, Swiss franc and yen.

Japan’s Nikkei lost 0.95 percent and MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan eased 0.3 percent as bourses across the region turned red.

EMini futures for the S&P 500 were off 0.15 percent, while Treasury yields dipped further.
