The U.S. stock indices SPX, DJIA, and Nasdaq are plunging dramatically near to 1%. With that, the European stock reacted badly causing 1.46% drop in DAX, the German’s stock market index. Here the question is, who’s behind it and what’s going on in the market?

With no surprises, it’s the U.S. President Donald Trump who spread uncertainty by saying that he’s not sure if the scheduled meeting with the North Korean leader would really happen.

As you know, the trade war sentiments between China and the U.S. eased after Mnuchin stated negotiators put a potential trade war “on hold”. But Trump seems dissatisfied with the negotiations. Consequently, the VIX (volatility index) has jumped by +7.26%, signifying the fear in investors.

S&P500- SPX – Quick Technical Outlook

Speaking about technicals, the SPX has already come out of the bullish channel which was supporting the index near $2,715. Now it’s heading south to the next target level of $2,700. The thing is, $2,700 isn’t merely a double bottom, but also a psychological level.
