FX & CFD trading involves significant risk
Most Asian stock indices closed lower due to the delay to the link between the Hong Kong's and Shanghai's stock exchange. The link between both stock exchanges still hadn't received regulatory approval.
Markets were supported by the results from the European Central Bank's stress tests. The European Central Bank said on Sunday that 25 banks failed due to a capital shortfall and 13 banks have to raise an additional €10 billion in capital. Most banks have already taken steps to solve their problems.
