CHINA SLOWDOWN FEARS SLAM STOCKS
Stocks Sink on More China Fears
U.S. stocks fell sharply on Thursday on revived fears of an economic slowdown in China. The concerns centered on a new preliminary report showing that Chinese manufacturing activity actually contracted in the month of January, for the first time in six months. The news spooked global investors and drove them out of riskier assets. Stocks and currencies in emerging markets also suffered. (For example, Argentina’s currency fell by the sharpest level in over a decade.) Meanwhile, the report on manufacturing activity in the Eurozone area showed improvement, but European stocks still fell by 1% on the negative news out of China. China’s precarious economic situation continues to threaten a major worldwide selloff in risky assets like stocks. Gold prices, however, rose to a new three month high today as investors moved towards safety.
