Stock markets in Asia is mixed this morning after some major losses in Europe and Wall Street on Tuesday thanks to persistent Omicron concerns and signals from the US Federal Reserve that it will liquidate its massive monetary stimulus faster than expected.

The ASX200 in Sydney was first out of the blocks and it has fallen 0.83% thanks to the macroeconomic concerns, and despite a better than expected decline of 1.9% in GDP in the third quarter. The forecasts had pointed to 2.7 per cent.

Kospi has risen 1% in Seoul, though strengthened by strong exports in the third quarter, and the Nikkei is also up in Tokyo. Hang Seng expects to fall 0.8% at the opening in a short time, so it is a draw score on the stock exchanges so far.

Oil prices have also suffered due to the Omicron scare, which traders fear could jeopardize the recovery of the global economy and hurt demand. Brent oil stands at $ 70.57 after falling 3.91% on Tuesday.
