Australia and Singapore sustained losses amounting to 8.3%, Hong Kong and other Far East Markets went down by 7%. Moscows RTS and Micex will not open today, at the decision of the Federal Stock Markets Service. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones was down 0.73%, while European Markets suffered heavy losses. Analysts have attributed the brutal losses to the investors panic and despite the Banks and governments moves to combat the crisis. Meanwhile, the Bank of Japan injected an additional injected 34 billion to Banks, while US President George Bush will address his fellow citizens, in an attempt to convince them to show confidence to the governments efforts to tackle the crisis. Meanwhile, light crude has been trading under US$82.85 per barrel in Asian Markets, while the price of Brent, North Sea dropped below US$80. Presently it is trading at US$79.19 per barrel.
