Asia Market Watch was a business news programme aired on CNBC Asia from 9 a.m. to noon, Hong Kong/Singapore/Taiwan time. The programme, presented by Amanda Drury, took its name from the previous CNBC US programme Market Watch. The programme was also aired in part on CNBC Europe and in its entirety in the US on CNBC World.

Although it was referred to as Asia Market Watch in programme listings and by some presenters, the programme's title sequence and graphics referred to the programme only as Market Watch since 30 October 2000. The programme, which debuted a new logo on October 30, 2006, then used the theme music previously adopted by Street Signs (as the same as formerly Business Center).

When the programme debuted in April 2000, it was entitled Asia Market Watch and only lasted for 1 hour with the 2nd half-hour a replay of the 1st half-hour. However, in October 2000, as part of CNBC Asia's extension of live regional programming, it was simply renamed Market Watch and aired live for 3½ hours on Weekdays (2 hours in the morning from 10-12 SIN time and 1½ hours from 14-15.30 SIN time). Prior to 2 January 2001, CNBC Asia used graphics for the show different from the one used by CNBC US.

The programme tracked the current trading in the Asian session, with link ups to bourses across Asia, including Tokyo and Sydney.

The programme ended its run on March 23, 2007 as part of a major schedule revamp by CNBC Asia. The timeslot currently occupied by the show has been split between a new-look Asia Squawk Box and a new programme, CNBC's Cash Flow. [1]

Global Market Watch's Asian edition aired originally at 17:30 SIN time and was seen exclusively in Asia following a similar format to its European counterpart. It was originally hosted solely by Martin Soong but he was joined by Grace Phan when the show moved to 20:30 SIN time in July 2000.

European Market Watch was a business news programme aired on CNBC Europe between 10 am-noon CET (9-11am WET). The programme was originally based on the CNBC U.S. morning programme Market Watch, which was later replaced by the programme Morning Call. Just like its US counterpart, European Market Watch presented viewers with the latest market information and in-depth analysis of the stories making business.

Global Market Watch's European Edition, was originally named Market Watch in 1998 to give a midday recap of Asian markets and preview the day in Europe. It aired at 05:00–05:30 BST and was anchored by Geoff Cutmore in London and Cecilia Zecha in Singapore with Simon Hobbs and Bernard Lo as stock watchers. In 1999, it was renamed Global Market Watch and was solely anchored by Simon Hobbs but CNBC Asia stock watchers continued to give an update on Asian action.
