The American stock market fell yesterday amid falling shares of automobile corporations, as well as due to speculation about higher interest rates of the Fed. Today, negative for investor sentiment has become the weak data on manufacturing PMI in China, which was 47.00 and indicates a contraction in activity in the sector. Today, we should pay attention to the manufacturing PMI in the US in September (13:45 GMT).

We keep medium-term positive outlook, but note the possibility of falling prices in the near future.
European stocks fell yesterday due to the global deterioration on market sentiment amid the weakness of global economic growth.

Today markets are growing due to correction. Negative today has become weak data on manufacturing and service PMI in the Eurozone that decreased to 52.0 and 54.0 respectively, against the forecast of 52.2 and 54.1.

The dynamics of trading in Japan tomorrow will be affected by the news on the index of business activity in the country.
