The global stock trades dramatically bearish, following Thursday’s bearish momentum. The United States has intensified its trade war with China, inflicting tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese exports after trade discussions held in Washington disappointed to produce a breakthrough.

Duties on exports grew from 10% to 25% at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, triggering substantial sell-off in the stock exchange markets.
