TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The roller-coaster ride for investors continues in the United States. After massive losses on U.S. equity markets on Monday, the markets bounced back with sharp gains. The spike spread to Asian markets on Thursday but has failed to ignite German markets, which have posted strong declines. The DAX is currently at its lowest level since December 2016 and has plunged 9.2 percent in December. This follows a drop of 6.67% in October, so it’s no surprise that risk appetite has dropped sharply.
