TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

hopes for a positive start to the New Year were quickly dashed, as Asian and European stock markets declined sharply on Thursday. Investors responded negatively after Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) cut its quarterly sales forecast. The revenue warning, which was released after the close of North American markets on Wednesday, caught the markets by surprise. Apple blamed the downturn on weaker iPhone sales in China, which has been hit by an economic slowdown due to the ongoing tariff battle with the United States. Will the downturn continue? Last week, the DAX dropped to 10,279, its lowest level since November 2016, and investors are sorely in need of some positive news to shore up their badly-shaken confidence.
