Global markets under pressure as the US government shutdown continues for the fourth day

Asian markets closed lower on the final trading of the week. Rising political uncertainties in the US as we approach the fourth day of the government shutdown has made investors more jittery about the markets and no one certainly wants to take excessive risk over the weekend. The circumstances are becoming more worrying as we approach towards the US debt ceiling and President Barack Obama’s comment in which he addressed that Wall Street should be more concerned about this government shutdown  has sent the alarm bells ringing.
