American stocks keep diving
On Friday, American shares kept diving for the fifth day after dismal British jobs data in February contributed to fears over decelerating global surge, which was driven by a steep dive in China's exports as well as a prolonged deceleration in the eurozone.
Meanwhile, last month, the American economy generated no more than 20,000 in contrast with hopes that nonfarm payrolls would surge by 180,000. The given data managed to overshadow unemployment rate that dived back below 4% along with the best annual wage surge since 2009.
A common gauge of the health of the American economy, the Dow Jones Transports index headed south by 1.60%, which is its steepest outcome for the last 11 losing marathons.
Fears about global surge escalated after exports in China, the world's number two economy, demonstrated the most impressive dive for three years last month that generated rumors of a trade meltdown.

In addition to this, Costco Wholesale Corp rallied by 4.56%, which is the most impressive outcome on the S&P.
