LGT Navigator: Stocks fall on heightened risk of escalation
The New York Stock Exchange again suffered heavy losses at the end of last week due to fears of an escalation of the trade dispute with China, political turbulence in the White House and weaker economic data. The Dow Jones Industrial thus widened its recent losses, losing around -4.5% last week – the largest weekly percentage loss since March. As a result, the Asian stock markets are also trading in the red, in some cases significantly, at the start of the week. In Japan, GDP shrank at a stronger-than-anticipa-ted pace of -0.6% in Q3 compared to the previous quarter.
