TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Asian equity markets are down on Friday, and European markets have followed suit. Almost all listings on the DAX are in negative territory, and Deutsche Bank (DE:DBKGn) has plunged 4.15%. It’s been a miserable October for the DAX, which has plunged some 9.4 percent. The DAX is hovering close to the 11,000 mark, which has held since December 2017. Investors remained unnerved over a host of crises, both in and out of Europe. These include the Italian budget crisis, the Brexit standoff, US-China relations and the death of a Saudi journalist in Turkey. Soft risk appetite and some disappointing earning reports in Europe and the U.S have sent global stock markets sharply lower.
