Sydney’s S&P/ASX 200 index fell 0.6 per cent after dipping more than 1 per cent and touching its lowest level in more than two years as energy stocks shed 2.8 per cent and the key mining and financial segments dropped 2.3 and 0.5 per cent, respectively.

    [$$] Asia stocks fall on lower oil prices, pound edges higher

    Oil prices were more stable on Wednesday in Asia but the previous session’s sharp fall on demand concerns weighed on energy stocks in the region while the pound climbed ahead of a cabinet meeting to agree the draft Brexit treaty.
