Overnight in Asia, stocks have softened due to fresh concerns about the weakening Chinese property sector as China Evergrande nears a default deadline on Saturday.
Evergrande said a deal to sell a $2.6 billion stake in its property services unit failed and the shares have tumbled more than 12% in today’s session.
