Stock markets continued their decline on Friday opening in Wall Street. Dow Jones was down 0,29 % to 25753 points, S&P 500 down 0,35% to 2860 points and Nasdaq -0,13 % to 7900 points.

The biggest declining sector was the tech companies because of the new trade tariffs in the US China trade.

The US President Donald Trump has said that the countries have continued the negotiations but no agreement is signed.

The new tariffs will also have their impact for example on machinery and other industrial stocks. Apple (APPL), which manufacturers many Apple assessories and Macs in China, is expected to sift the price increase into retail prices, according to Bloomberg News.

In London the stock markets gained and the FTSE 100 index was up by 0,3% to 7229 points. In Germany the DAX was up 0,82 % to 12071 points and in France the CAC 40 index, up 0,52% to 5340 points.
