The day before, the most important German stock market barometer had fallen by almost one percent in view of the corona worries and the lack of progress in the negotiations in the USA on a new economic stimulus program. In the United States, too, the indices had paid tribute to their recent run. Since the beginning of October, however, the DAX has done well so far, with growth of a good two percent currently.
However, a few weeks before the US election and in view of the dreary Brexit negotiations, the nervousness in the financial markets is increasing.
