Global markets lower amid China concerns

Global markets lower amid China concerns China’s volatility continues to weigh heavily on the world markets Thursday with the devaluation of the yuan promoting a sell-off. Asian markets closed lower as a result and European indexes are also being weighed down by weak sentiment on Asia and analysis of the Fed minutes which suggest a September interest rate rise may not happen.
