Economic fears and concerns about energy supplies are causing uncertainty on the capital markets. Following disappointing economic data from China at the beginning of the week, new figures on industrial production in the US also pointed to a slowdown. At the same time, worries about energy stability are increasing with political power games between the EU and Russia on gas supplies.
