The global markets are very sensitive to the news related to the macro-economic factors. The markets are impacted by the tensions which could lead to the global slowdown. When the economic growth worries increase, the market participants liquidate their holdings in equities and, as a result, the stock markets encounter the negative momentum. Therefore, a rise in the economic uncertainties have the potential to significantly disrupt the momentum of stock markets. It can be said that the trade battle between the US and China is the primary concern which could significantly impact the broader momentum of stock markets.
The fears of global economic slowdown can impact the sentiments of the market players and they might decide to avoid making deployments towards the riskier asset class. The reduction in economic uncertainties can positively impact the broader momentum of the equity markets.

However, on the same day, S&P 500 Index got ended in red as it fell by 7.61 points or 0.28% and got closed at 2,744.45.
