In Tuesday morning trading, investors took another roller coaster ride.

"People were positioned for more central bank easing or continued central bank easing, low rates, and importantly, low volatility", he said.
Many experts say this week's slump is likely to be a short-term blip and not cause for bigger concerns.
USA stocks swooned Friday and Monday as investors anxious that accelerating inflation and higher interest rates could derail the market's record-setting rally.
Many analysts see worries about higher USA interest rates and excessive valuations as the catalyst for a pullback that was amplified by computerised trading mechanisms that can exacerbate movements in stocks. That's partly becuase the global economy is in good shape.

USA crude fell 1.72 per cent to US$60.73 per barrel and Brent was last at US$64.56, down 1.45 per cent on the day. Germany's DAX lost 2.6% while France's CAC 40 ended down 2%.
