After gaining 1.88% yesterday, the ASX gave back just about all of those gains as October got off to a rough start today.

The ASX closed at 7,186 points, down 2% from yesterday and 5.8% from mid August.

All sectors finished in the red, with financials and consumer discretionary stocks leading the laggards. The ‘best’ sector was utilities, which only lost 0.05%.

The falls came amid a continued drop in global markets sparked by fears of inflation, the withdrawal of monetary stimulus and continued uncertainty about the future of Chinese property developer Evergrande.

But one sector that avoided the worst of today’s rout was the travel and tourism sector, with the confirmation Australia’s international border would re-open.

A further boost was given with the TGA giving the nod to allowing in tourists who had received the Sinovac vaccine, which enables the return of tourists from China Australia’s largest market.
