TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The DAX index posted strong gains last week, climbing 1.49%. However, the index has reversed directions on Monday and posted sharp losses. Risk appetite soured on Friday, after President Trump issued an executive order to blacklist Huawei, a Chinese telecom company. Last week, Trump issued a moratorium on tariffs against European automakers, but investors remain wary. German automaker listings have posted sharp losses on Monday – BMW is down 2.03%, Daimler has fallen 1.60% and Volkswagen (DE:VOWG_p) has declined 1.22%. With U.S.-China talks on hold, traders should be prepared for more swings this week.
