Tokyo hit hard by US sell-off

This calming measure kicks in when stocks fall more than 70 points from the previous day’s level. The Japanese bourse also issued a warning that it would suspend arbitrage trading if the Topix fell 100 points from the previous day's closing value to 1711.33 points. The warning came as the index dropped to 1719.15 points, 90 points down from the previous day.

The markets recovered before this was enforced, reaching 1740.11 on Thursday, but have since dropped back to a close of 1721.59 today.
