Unlike the Japanese market general negative situation on tenders in China was aggravated not by a rate of national currency but by corporate news. So, shares of airline Air China Ltd. fell up to a day time limit (-10%) after attempt of the company to get a share in China Eastern Airlines Corp. failed.

News from one of the largest Chinese insurers company Ping An Insurance Co. didn't add optimism, it informed about its intention to carry out additional emission of shares and to issue convertible bonds for a total sum 22 billion dollars. The shares of the company also reached a day time "bottom" limit and fell in price on 10%. The Chinese raw companies also finished the day with downturn: quotations of oil-extracting PetroChina fell up to 4,8% and steelmaking Baoshan Iron and Steel - on 7,8%.

The basic influence on the tenders in Asia by tradition is rendered with news about condition of economy of the USA - the largest commodity market for the every possible Asian goods. News of the last week could hardly be named consolatory and they only strengthened confidence of investors that the largest economic could avoid recession. Thus, the volume of construction of new houses in the USA in December 2007 decreased on 14% - up to 1,006 million units that became the worst parameter from 1991.

The chapter of Federal Reserve System (FRS) of the USA Ben Bernanke once again recognized that the American economy was in difficult position and emphasized necessity of acceptance of measures for its stimulation in order to prevent recession. Thus the president of the USA Georges Bush proposed to reduce tax loading to 1% of gross national product or 140 billion dollars, however, analysts had already expressed an opinion that those measures would not help to avoid economic recession. As a result the forward decrease noticed on the previous week on all world markets made today next coil on the tenders in Adia where banks and companies-exporters became the main victims.

(-2,7%), the sixth largest British bank Lloyds TSB (-1,9%), the second largest Dutch insurer Aegon (-2%) went down at the first hours.

The sahres of the company cheapened on 6,8%.
