Market volatility is no longer just a market phenomenon, but a global one.
And it’s not just a problem for investors in emerging markets.
As the world’s largest trading volume increases, so too does volatility.
This week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost more than 500 points, or 0.5 percent, as investors began to question whether it could withstand the threat of a global financial crisis.
This is not a good sign for the rest of the world.
For one thing, the volatility isn’t coming from an outside source.
The rise in global markets is largely driven by the global supply chain, which includes factories, warehouses and banks.
These supply chains are also dependent on oil prices.
Oil prices are low because of low oil prices and the growing economic and political instability in the Middle East and North Africa.
The drop in oil prices has made it more difficult for companies to produce goods and services.
This has also made it harder for them to compete with cheaper energy from other parts of the globe.
The result is a slowdown in global growth.
The Dow has been down about 2 percent this year and the S&P 500 has lost about 2.4 percent.
This isn’t just a global problem.
It’s also an economic one.
According to a report released in December by the Institute for Supply Management, the global economy grew by 0.7 percent in 2016, the slowest pace of expansion since the global financial meltdown.
This slowdown is a result of a number of factors, including the slowing economy in developing countries and a sharp decline in global oil demand.
The report says that global oil prices have been falling for three years now, a trend that has helped push global growth to a near-record low.
This, in turn, has helped fuel a global trade war, a global recession and a worldwide slump in confidence in the financial system.
The global economy isn’t going to recover in the short term, but there is some hope.
The US economy grew 2.2 percent in the third quarter, the strongest quarterly growth in six years.
This growth is fueled by a surge in hiring and wage growth.
But the job market remains patchy.
It hasn’t returned to pre-recession levels and wages have continued to stagnate.
The biggest problem is that many of the people with the best jobs are in countries like China, which are heavily reliant on foreign imports and are already slowing economic growth.
This slowing of the global economic recovery will slow down the economy, but it won’t solve the underlying problems.
