Two areas, in particular, are in China and robotics. While ongoing trade negotiations between the U.S. and China have the capital markets eagerly anticipating a tangible trade deal, stimulus measures by the Chinese government to prop up the domestic economy are starting to take its effect.

An October replete with sell-offs and a start to November that saw U.S. equities rally following the conclusion of the U.S. midterm elections was followed up by the return of trade wars racking the markets as the Dow Jones Industrial fell by as much as 500 points on Monday. Doing much of the damage was reports that U.S. President Donald Trump is threatening to install more tariffs, particularly on vehicles manufactured overseas.
