An investor looks at the stock price monitor at a private securities company in Shanghai, China, Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012. Asian stock markets tumbled Thursday after a ratings agency threatened to downgrade the U.S. if a solution to the so-called fiscal cliff isn't negotiated among lawmakers and newly re-elected President Barack Obama. Also being watched by investors is Thursday's opening of China's Communist Party congress — the once-in-a-decade forum to name China's top leadership. (AP Photo/Eugene Hoshiko)
