Yesterday, the major averages broke initial support. The Dow closed below its 50 DMA for the first time since it reclaimed that important technical level on 1/17.

Stock markets across Asia are struggling, as investors get increasingly nervous about the risk of a new US-China trade showdown.

Japan’s Nikkei Index dropped for the second straight day, shedding around -1.5%, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index and the Shanghai Composite Index both closed more than -1% lower.

Chinese stocks have now fallen around -6% so far this week.

Wednesday’s slide comes on the eve of trade talks in Washington between China and the United States, which have been overshadowed by the Trump administration’s renewed threat to hike tariffs.
