American equities are seen tumbling
On Thursday, the American stock market dived at the beginning of the trading session amid news that US President Donald Trump canceled a scheduled meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-no.
In a letter to Kim, uncovered by the White House on Thursday, US President stated that he had made up his mind to cancel the meeting expected to take place in Singapore on June 12 because of great anger as well as open hostility in Pyongyang's last statement.
Concerns about US trade protectionism also put pressure on financial markets.
On Wednesday, Trump ordered the launch of an investigation into national security with regard to imports of vehicles that could lead to the introduction of new tariffs similar to those duties imposed in March on import of steel and aluminum. China labeled this step as abuse of national security issues and pledged to protect its own interests.
