All three benchmarks ended well off their lows — Seoul shares had in particular dropped as much as 10% earlier in the day, before sharply narrowing losses. The Kospi has now lost between 2% and 4% for six straight sessions.
Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 index staged a major turnaround from a more than 5% drop to end the day up 1.2% higher at 4,034.8.
China’s July CPI reached a higher-than-expected 6.5%, accelerating from a 6.4% year-on-year rise in June.
The Shanghai Composite ended fractionally lower at 2526.07. The index came off lows even as the country's consumer price index rose to a higher-than-expected 6.5% in July from a year earlier and above the 6.4% rate in June. But market participants said they don't expect Beijing to launch further tightening measures given the tumultuous global markets.
Japan’s Inpex Corp. fell 5.5% in Tokyo. In Hong Kong, Cnooc Ltd. lost 8.2% of its value, while stock in Angang Steel Co. plunged 12.7%.

In Tokyo, Nomura Holdings Inc. skidded 3.8% and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. traded down 2.4%.

European markets ended the day in green zone
The markets started trading on a dark mood on concerns over slowdown in economic recovery of US and Europe for all this week.
The main catalyst to rise was the fact that the European Central Bank today purchased Italian and Spanish debt in an attempt to curb the nation’s surging borrowing costs and prevent the crisis spreading further.
Then the markets gained as investors bet the Federal Open Market Committee will repeat its pledge to maintain stimulus measures to revive confidence in the U.S. economy.
Among big decliners in London, Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC fell 3.9%. Silver miner Fresnillo PLC slumped 7.3%, tracking a drop in silver prices.
Shares of RWE AG sank 6.3% after the utility firm said first-half net profit fell 22% and slashed its earnings forecast, citing pressure from Germany’s decision to close its nuclear reactors. In the same sector, E.On AG fell 5.9%, intensifying pressure on the DAX.
Also in Germany, Deutsche Telecom AG fell 3.5% and Deutsche Bank AG dropped 2.9%.
Notable gainers included car maker BMW AG, up 6.3%, and telecom-equipment firm Alcatel-Lucent, up 9.2%.
