TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Japanese shares on Wednesday dropped to their lowest in more than a week as global risk sentiment soured after an extended selloff in U.S. heavyweight technology companies.
The benchmark Nikkei share average .N225 closed 1.04% lower at 23,032.54, while the broader Topix .TOPX lost 0.96% to 1,605.40.
Both indexes hit their lowest level since Aug. 28.
Optimism that the Bank of Japan would buy exchange-traded funds to support the market in addition to a higher e-mini futures for the S&P 500 ESc1 helped curb early declines.
