  • Wall Street set to bounce after brutal start to the month
    U.S. stock index futures indicated a higher open on Wednesday after the worst start to September in 13 years, with stocks finishing down almost 3 percent as China and interest rate fears dominated.
  • Oil extends losses on weak global economic outlook
    Oil prices fell on Wednesday as concerns about the global economy exacerbated worries that an oversupply of crude could last longer than expected. Weak manufacturing reports from China, the United States and Europe undermined global equities, while a stronger-than-expected build in U.S. crude stocks and weaker U.S. manufacturing data drove oil market sentiment down, analysts said. Wednesday's fall compounded an 8 percent drop in Brent and U.S. crude prices on Tuesday, which ended a 25 percent three-session surge, the largest three-day gain since 1990.

The MSCI China Index has slumped more than 30 percent from its April peak as a mainland equity rout rippled across the Hong Kong border and data pointed to a deepening economic slowdown.
