Trump's promises

Stock markets falter as investors begin to question Donald Trump's promises

European stock markets fell on Wednesday, knocked by Wall Street suffering its worst day of the year on Tuesday, as doubts around Donald Trump’s economic policies drove investors out of some of the most popular trades of the last few months.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 both fell over 1 per cent on Tuesday, which marked their worst one-day performance since Mr Trump’s US presidential election victory in November, according to Reuters.

London’s FTSE 100 ended the day off 0.7 per cent. The pan European Stoxx Europe 600 index slipped 0.4 per cent. US indexes fell too, but not as dramatically as on Tuesday.
