Asian shares falter, bonds rally on global growth fears

Asian shares stumbled on Wednesday and global bonds rallied as investors fretted over the outlook for world growth with trade tensions between Washington and Beijing showing no signs of abating.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was last down 0.4% after three straight days of gains. South Korea's KOSPI and Australian shares were 0.9% lower each. Japan's Nikkei faltered 1.4% while E-Minis for the S&P 500 were 0.2% lower.

Risk aversion has increased globally in recent days as fears of world recession resurface amid disappointing macro data in major economies. Wins for eurosceptic parties in EU elections as well as snap poll in Greece and political turmoil in Austria have added to the gloomy outlook.
