Asia Stocks Fall As Wall Street Rally Skids

China's blue-chip CSI300 index remained flat in early trade. It is on track for a sixth straight weekly loss, which could be its worst weekly performance in 12 years and a record fifth consecutive monthly loss.


The equities rally, which had been driven by falling interest rates and the Federal Reserve's dovish turn, stalled on Thursday even after US economic data that beat expectations initially turned the major indices green. A far steeper-than-expected decline in British inflation also took markets by surprise.
