The pullback by equities emerged in the middle of a sharp decline in the price of oil, with crude oil for July delivery contract crumbling to $43.23 (-$0.97) a barrel, the lowest finishing range for a front-month futures contract since September of 2016.

The decline dragged oil into bearish territory, given that the price is all the way down by close to 22% in comparison to the 52-week high of $55.24 per barrel reached at the beginning of January of this year.

One important subject all markets makers ended up focusing on was whether or not China's A-Shares will make the MSCI (Morgan Stanley Capital International) Index. Already have missed out within the last several years, even though will provide additional global interest, China’s latest attempts seem to be more and more focused in the direction of building greater domestic participation.

China marketplace is valued close to $6tln, that's about one-tenth the size of the worldwide equity markets. In the event of the success, they'll be tapered in and everything at once. Even though this seems huge, it'll just be 0.5% of the MSCI Index. However, it could be the beginning of the trend!
