Singapore, Malaysia stocks fall after Wall Street selloff

U.S. equities tumble amid trade tensions between U.S. and China

KUALA LUMPUR (Nikkei Markets) -- Equities in Singapore and Malaysia declined Tuesday, after rising trade tensions and a rout in technology company shares led to a selloff on Wall Street.

Singapore's Straits Times Index declined 0.5% to 3,412.15 and Malaysia's FBM KLCI index fell 0.4% to 1,850.78. Lenders and rig builders paced losses on the STI, while heavyweight Tenaga Nasional led the KLCI's fall.
