TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Japanese stocks retreated on Friday, buffeted on the first trading session of 2019 as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) Inc’s earnings warning hit technology stocks and signs of slowdowns in the U.S. and Chinese economies soured broader sentiment.
The Nikkei share average .N225 ended the day down 2.26 percent at 19,561.96 after losing as much as 3.86 percent, as investors digested bearish news since the start of the year.
A bounce by Chinese stocks helped the Nikkei cut some losses, although it was not enough to lift Japanese stocks out of the red.
