Meanwhile, China's benchmark Shanghai Composite Index was the only gainer with a marginal 0.4% increase. India's Nifty nudged 0.7% lower.
With the federal government announcing the quantitative easing program, the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones shed a significant 2.1% and 1.4%, respectively. Meanwhile, Moody's Investors Service has placed the U.S. Aaa rating on review for a possible downgrade.
