Shares are vulnerable to current macro events such as North Korea, trump uncertainty and also a weaker seasonal period (sell in May and go away, come back on St Ledgers day) which is the old saying.
With the current EMA trend being bearish it is important to keep watch of support and resistance levels for further indications of any changes or continuations of the current trend.
The OPEC meeting which has signed a 9 month output cut failed to impress traders with oil losing nearly 5% which has also put downward pressure on markets.
