Asian equity markets joined Wall Street's slump on Tuesday after oil markets resumed their downward spiral.
China's benchmark index tumbled as much as 6 percent in the last hour of trade after rallying to a three-and-half-year high of 3,091 points earlier in the session. Analysts attributed the selloff to profit-taking, expectations for 2015 gross domestic product to be lowered to 7 percent and liquidity fears regarding new corporate bond market restrictions, announced on Monday.
