Asian stocks and U.S. futures fell Friday after disappointing earnings from Inc. and Apple Inc., amid concerns over inflation.

Shares were lower in Japan, Australia and South Korea. Nasdaq 100 contracts underperformed S&P 500 counterparts. Apple and Amazon fell in extended trading, signaling a more than $200 billion drop in combined market value.

The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index’s performance, was little changed at 17,888, as of 7:10 a.m.

The U.S. 10-year Treasury yield dipped. The U.S. dollar was near a one-month low and crude oil fluctuated. Meanwhile, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde acknowledged inflationary pressures will last longer than expected. Investors kept alive bets for rate hikes as soon as next year, bolstering the euro.

In cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin retreated below $58,000 before rebounding to nearly $60,000 in Asian hours.
