  • European shares bounced in early trading on Tuesday after falling in the previous five sessions, with some strong company results and mergers and acquisitions news supporting the market.
  • Chinese shares fell on Tuesday, as Beijing scrambled once again to prop up a stock market whose wild gyrations have heightened fears about the financial stability of the world's second biggest economy.
  • Gold hovered near its weakest level since early 2010 on Tuesday, reflecting investor hesitation to bid up bullion amid growing expectations of a near-term hike in U.S. interest rates.

  • Dollar firmed on Tuesday as cautious investors covered short positions ahead of the start of a two-day U.S. Federal Reserve meeting and as a continued slump in Chinese equity markets sapped appetite for riskier assets.
  • Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Bhd (MHB) reported a 55% drop in second quarter net profit from a year earlier, on lower income from its oil and gas structure construction unit.
  • Indonesia will impose a levy on palm oil exports starting on Thursday after weeks of delay, providing as much as 4.5 trillion rupiah this year to state coffers.
