period." This threshold was 15% earlier.

Asian markets slipped amid concerns that the prolonged U.S.-China
trade war has taken a toll on the corporate earning numbers. Japanese
markets fell as weak exports data and disappointing U.S. corporate
earning numbers led to worries over the economic growth outlook. Today
(as on Jul 19), Asian markets traded higher, boosted by the comments of
the Fed officials which renewed hopes of rate cut in the near future. Both
Nikkei and Hangseng were trading up 1.70% and 1.12%, respectively (as

promptly when the economy was slowing and rates were low.
As per the last close, European markets fell as fresh series of corporate
earning numbers failed to boost market sentiments. Meanwhile,
investors are keeping eye on the developments on the U.S. China trade

results. Globally, a few U.S. companies also could not impress with their
earnings. Also, Asian Development Bank lowered India's GDP forecast to
7% for 2019-20 on the back of concerns over fiscal shortfall.
