Mon, 5th Aug 2019 08:57

The Cboe UK 250 was down 1.3% at 16,978.60, while the Cboe UK Small Companies was 0.1% higher at 11,034.84."Global stock markets had a shocker last week, posting their biggest declines in several weeks, after President Trump threw everyone a curve ball just as US, China trade talks had restarted," said CMC Market's Michael Hewson.Hewson continued: "As we head into a new week, and a disappointing start to August, the big question is whether last week's sell-off is a one-off and a buying opportunity, or the start of a much bigger decline."Judging by the ferocity of the last two-day's sell-off and today's further declines in Asia, there is a sense that it might be the latter which means we look set to see some further August angst for investors, starting with today's session in Asia, which has seen further heavy falls and is set to see European markets open sharply lower this morning."In Asia on Monday, the Japanese Nikkei 225 index closed down 1.7%. In China, the Shanghai Composite closed down 1.6%, while the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong was 2.8% lower.Sterling was quoted at USD1.2108 early Monday, down from USD1.2122 at the London equities close on Friday.As the US-China trade war shows no signs of coming to an end, large-cap miners struggled in early trade in London.
