LGT Navigator: Social media shares put Wall Street under pressure

A profit warning from social media company Snap weighed on the entire technology sector, dragging Nasdaq indexes down more than two percent.

LGT Navigator: Sentiment on Wall Street remains tense – Asian stock markets with tailwinds

Against this backdrop, volatility is likely to remain high and stock market sentiment fragile. In Asia, an intervention by the Chinese central bank provided a tailwind for the stock markets, at least in the short term.
