The rout continued across Asia with the Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index down 5.08% and the Tokyo Nikkei down 4.6%. The FTSE 100 is currently down 2.34% and both the French and German stock markets are down over 3%.

The commodity sell off has continued with oil trading below $40 for the first time in 6 years.
