The US market continued to consolidate from record highs yesterday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.2% to end at 35,031.07 points, while the S&P 500 lost 0.13% to 4,514.07. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.57% to 15,286.64.
US job openings raced to a new record high in July, suggesting that last month's sharp slowdown in hiring was due to employers being unable to find workers rather than weak demand for labor.
Job openings, a measure of labor demand, jumped 749,000 to 10.9 million on the last day of July, the highest level since the series began in December 2000, the Labor Department said in its monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS report, on Wednesday. Hiring was little changed at 6.7 million.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan traded 0.14 percent lower.
Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a gap down opening at close to 17300 levels today, However, as I have been saying, 17300 is an important level as we could see more profit booking kicking in case of breaching the level.
