US stocks extend losses as bond yields fall

US stocks fell today on the continued trade war concerns, Hong Kong's political turmoil and the fall of US treasury bond yields.

 

Thousands of protesters gathered at Hong Kong's International Airport, which made authorities cancel more than 150.

 

The 10-year US treasuries yield fell to 1.64% and the 30-year fell to 2.130%.

 

Observers see that Hong Kong's protests has put pressure on Wall Street, as investors fear it could have an impact equivalent to the trade war.

 

In the oil market, WTI rose by 0.8% to close at $54.93 a barrel, with a high of $55.1 and a low of $53.5.
