Deutz Shares

In 2018, the global equity markets did not maintain the upward trajectory that they had been following for many years. The fear that interest-rate hikes in the US could lead to a slowdown in the economy was the main reason why the share indices fell. The introduction of new and higher customs tariffs and the increasing uncertainty surrounding the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union also had an adverse impact. On 28 December 2018, the DAX closed at 10,559 points, which was 18.3 per cent lower than the figure of 12,918 points at the end of 2017.
