Asian stock markets wobble as China Evergrande woes sap confidence

Business & Finance

HONG KONG (Sept 24): Asian shares were on edge on Friday, hurt by persistent uncertainty around the fate of debt-ridden China Evergrande, even as increased risk appetite drove US stocks and Treasury yields higher.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was little changed after falling 0.7% this week, poised for its third weekly loss in a row.

Australian shares fell 0.4%, while the Hong Kong benchmark was mostly flat.
