The DAX remains under strong pressure and posted sharp losses for a second straight week. Investor risk appetite has waned, as the ongoing global tariff war between the U.S. and its major trading partners has dampened global growth. The markets are hoping for a breakthrough at the G20 summit in Argentina on Friday, when President Trump meets with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. If there is any progress, traders can expect the DAX to respond with gains.
