Losses were held in check due to the fact that China had its 2019 economic surge objective reduced, thus affecting the outlook for the world’s economy.
On Tuesday, China told that it was targeting economic surge of from 6% to 6.5% this year, down from the 6.6% surge posted in 2018 that was already the lowest outcome for decades.
The government also announced more stimulus, such as reduction in taxes, increased infrastructure investment, not to mention lending to small businesses.
