Yesterday market being the first trading day for the American markets to react to the China Gross Domestic Product released data, the slowdown forecast from the International Monetary Fund and the headlines coming from business handles in Davos, has seen values float in the ambiguity. 

It was presumably the fear eventually which saw the trading numbers, however, despite it being the Chinas lowest Gross Domestic Product in nearly 30 years, it is still up 6.6%! Ultimately, the market marked a small rebound at the closing hour, though only to prevent close at the day's low levels.
