WONG: And in todays Market Report Asian financial shares fell sharply following U.S. peers, while Japan's benchmark Nikkei neared 26-year lows. Japan's finance minister says his government may buy shares as falling equity prices eat away at the capital bases of banks and other businesses. One analyst says a lack of clarity by policymakers, especially over U.S. bank nationalization plans, is spooking the markets.

Meanwhile, China wants to consolidate its automobile sector through a series of mergers. Some 14 major automakers dominate 90 percent of the market.
