US markets fell almost 1% last Friday after disappointed employment data with unemployment rate rose to 9.1% and number of jobs hired was very much lesser than expected.  This has put question marks on the recovery of US economy and coupling with QE2 ending in this month.  Asian bourses were trading in negative region for the day.  Nikkei closed -1.18%, SSE and HSI both closed for holiday and STI fell 1.01% in a thin volume day.  Despite the fact that over the weekend, EU is preparing another bailout for Greece, that didn't excite investors' interest.  Only 1 out of 30 index stock managed to register a positive closing.
