1Almost 90% of sectors finished today in deep red. Defensive groups, including Metals (-4.59%), Chemicals (-0.44%), and Iron Ores (-1.49%) led the fall with massive sell orders. The downfalls of the global commodity in gear of trade war between the US and China was the main drive behind today’s dive.

Analysts believed that the outlook for global commodities does not look good and the industry might face even harder days in coming months.
