    Weak Data from China, Euro Zone Proves to Be Too Much for U.S. Investors to Handle

    The selling began in Asia early Friday after China reported industrial production and retail sales growth numbers for November which failed to meet expectations. The data served as the latest signs of a weakening economy in China. Furthermore, it exposed the risks that China is facing as it continues to battle the United States in their ongoing trade war. Economic conditions also worsened in the Euro Zone. The IHS Markit Flash Euro Zone PMI Index fell to 51.7 in December, its lowest level in four years.

    Global growth worry hits stocks, but U.S. data lifts dollar

    A gauge of global stocks tumbled on Friday after weak economic data from China and Europe intensified global growth worries as investors weighed the broader impact of the trade dispute between the United States and China. Germany's private-sector expansion slowed to a four-year low, meanwhile, suggesting growth in Europe's largest economy may be weak in the final quarter. The European data came on the heels of weak readings from China, where November retail sales grew at the weakest pace since 2003 and industrial output rose the least in nearly three years, underlining risks to the economy as Beijing works to defuse its trade dispute with the United States.
