On Friday, the market sentiment was one of risk aversion as focus was on US President Donald Trump 's press conference on China, as fears increased over a new stalemate between the world's two largest economies.
In the US equity market, a drop was observed in major stock exchanges with the Dow Jones index falling by 0.07%, the S&P500 index rose by 0.48% and the Nasdaq went up by 1.29%. On the other hand, the European benchmark - Stoxx 600 - fell by 1,44% on Friday.
In the debt market, the day was relatively mixed and the main yields ended up closing the day, thus reflecting a greater demand for these types of safer assets.
In the foreign exchange market, the US Dollar continues to lose value and it is possible to observe a continuation of its decline in recent days.
Oil retreated in Asian trading with rising US-China tensions, after White House National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow said China was making a "big mistake" in relation to Hong Kong.
Gold, on the other hand, pointed upwards as expected on a day of risk appetite.
