The uncertainty over the global economy weighed down all of the indices. The tech-heavy NASDAQ ended the day 3.8 percent or 283 points lower at 7,158. The S&P 500 index closed at 2,700, down 90 points or 3.24 percent.
“Violent volatility resumed as tumbling bond yields, a flattening yield curve and lingering questions about the G20 US-China trade truce combined to stoke increasing recession fears. While US growth is still holding up OK, worries are increasing about the overseas economic outlook. All this macro-economic uncertainty is clouding the 2019 earnings outlook, leading to increasingly violent equity swings as investors try to handicap what 2019 will look like,” Alec Young, managing director of Global Markets Research, FTSE Russell, told ABC News.
“Cyclical sectors like technology, financials and industrials led markets lower, while defensive areas like utilities and real estate weathered the storm best. Until confidence in the global economy improves and bond yields stabilize, market psychology is likely to remain fragile,” Young added.
41st US President George H.W.Bush Dies at the Age of 94
Senior George Bush, who was a steady force amid the crisis period of the Soviet Union’s breakup and the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, died at the age of 94 yesterday. He remained the President during the tenure of 1989 to 1993.
His son, George W. Bush said on behalf of his family: “George Herbert Walker Bush, world war two naval aviator, Texas oil pioneer, and 41st president of the United States of America, died on 30 November 2018.
“He was 94 and is survived by his five children and their spouses, 17 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and two siblings. He was preceded in death by his wife of 73 years, Barbara; his second child Pauline Robinson ‘Robin’ Bush; and his brothers Prescott and William or ‘Bucky’ Bush. Funeral arrangements will be announced as soon as is practical.”
The statement from the late former President’s office had also previously told that George Herbert Walker Bush, a WW II naval aviator, Texas oil pioneer, and 41st US President, died on November 30, 2018. He was survived by his five children and two siblings. His wife, Barbara, had already died, previously, at 73.

President Donald gets Trumped! Judge orders to restore CNN’s Jim Acosta’s White House pass
In a big blow to the administration of US President Donald Trump, a federal judge ordered the White House, on Friday, to restore the access pass for CNN’s reporter Jim Acosta. But the pass which has been restored is temporary.
There was a heated exchange of words between CNN’s Jim Acosta and President Trump during a press conference, a few days ago.
After that White House had banned Acosta’s entry, and in its response, CNN had also sued White House earlier this week, demanding the immediate return of Acosta’s press credentials.
US district judge, Timothy Kelly ordered the White House, on Friday, to restore Acosta’s “hard pass” immediately. He also warned that the order is a temporary measure, while the case continues. But he said that he found it likely that CNN would succeed in its claim that its Fifth Amendment rights due to the process were violated.
The judge also said that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders’s earlier statement on the reasons for revoking Acosta’s pass were certainly untrue and at least were partly based on evidence that was of questionable accuracy.
Sanders had initially said that Acosta had been penalized for touching a White House intern after she tried to remove his microphone, during his interaction with President Trump.
District judge Timothy Kelly, who’s a Trump appointee, didn’t an emphasis on the first amendment’s protection for freedom of speech and the press but instead focused on a due provision of the US constitution that provides for fair treatment via a judicial or administrative process.
Kelly said in his verbal ruling that whatever process occurred within the government is still so shrouded in mystery that the government at oral argument could not tell him who made the initial decision to revoke Mr. Acosta’s press pass.
After the ruling, White House said it would temporarily restore Acosta’s pass.
The case though will still be continuing further between CNN and the Trump administration.
CNN, the cable news giant, has remained a target for a while, for Donald Trump in his war against ‘mainstream media’.
Meanwhile, reporter Jim Acosta is now back to his work as usual.
Japanese Anti-trust Authorities will probe Tech giants Facebook, Amazon, and Google among others!
Japan’s Antitrust agencies will probe tech giants like Facebook, Google, Apple, and Amazon to find out if these big players are using their market-leader positions to exploit contractors or obstruct competition, said Japan’s fair-trade chief, on Thursday. In an interaction with the Mainichi Shimbun newspaper, the head of Japan’s Fair Trade Commission (JFTC) said that the investigation would take place next year.
Kazuyuki Sugimoto, the head of JFTC, said that they will probe whether ‘platformers’ are obstructing the technological innovation of Japanese companies.
Here, the term ‘platformers’ refers to the tech giants who are currently dominating their sector, and this includes the likes of Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google.
Kazuyuki also told that the probe would study whether the client data hoarding is obstructing newcomers from entering the market, or whether their dominant positions in the market are forcing their business partners to cut prices.
The investigation, yet to take place, will include meetings with the businesses and their partners, and it could also mean summoning company officials, by the antitrust watchdog.
Earlier in March, the Japanese unit of Amazon said that it was cooperating with the authorities after the JFTC raided its Tokyo headquarters on allegations of anti-trust violations.
The Japanese local media reported that the raids were related to the allegations that ‘Amazon Japan’ improperly demanded fees from suppliers, with public broadcaster NHK reporting that the firm told the suppliers it would stop working with them if they did not pay.
So, this decision of probing by Japanese anti-trust authorities also comes after the European authorities cracked down on the US tech giants.
The European Union, earlier this year, issued a record EUR 4.34 billion ($5 billion, translating about Rs.37,000 crores) anti-trust fine to US tech giant Google, accusing it of using its Android system’s huge popularity to promote its Google search engine and shut out rivals.
In its reply, Google appealed the decision, arguing that the EU’s accusations were unfounded, but last month itself it said that it would comply with the decision in order to avoid further fines.
The European Parliament, in September, approved a controversial EU copyright law that in a way gives more power to news and record companies against the Internet giants like Facebook and Google, though these firms have also pledged to fight against this ruling.
