NEW YORK (dpa-AFX) – A surprisingly slow economic growth in China took the wind out of the sails of the Wall Street recovery rally on Monday. On top of this, there were ongoing inflation worries in the wake of rising oil prices.
While good business figures from the major US banks had lifted the mood last week, mixed signals have now come from Asia, said analyst Neil Wilson from the trading house Markets.com.
The upswing in the Chinese economy lost much of its momentum in the third quarter: the world’s second largest economy only grew by 4.9 percent year-on-year and thus slightly less than experts expected on average. At the same time, rising prices for oil and energy are fueling investors’ concerns about inflation. They fear a sustained, significant rise in inflation rates, which could become a burden on the global economy.
However, the investors had already accessed the previous week after an intermittent price slide. The Dow had recovered by three and a half percent within three trading days, which stockbrokers see as a sign of strength. Even the record high of 35,631 points is within reach again.

The price for US oil has been rising for eight weeks now, driven by investors’ concerns about insufficient supply before the winter months. In addition, leading industrial countries are recovering from the economic slump in the Corona crisis, which is also causing the price to rise.
