U.S. indexes also closed lower, continuing from the retreat from the previous session, ahead of key bank earnings and consumer price data. Traders are stressed about the state of the global economy as central banks across the globe move aggressively to calm inflation.

Inflation data scheduled for a Wednesday release is expected to show U.S. consumer prices rose 8.8 per cent in June from a year earlier. This would be a new 40-year high, putting even more pressure on the Federal Reserve to tame soaring prices.
