The adverse conditions in Chinese economy have once again created tremors in the global bourses as the unexpected devaluation of Yuan shaken the markets. This time the main culprit was the China instability factor that sent global stocks spiraling down for the second time this week. All the major indices S&P 500 index, Dow Jones, Nasdaq and CSI 300 fell as traders preferred to get out of the risky assets.
China's central bank devalued renminbi by 0.51 percent overnight. This is for the eighth time, Chinese government devalued Yuan and the biggest since August 2015. The equities on selling side accounted for 85 percent of the volume on New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

According to Financial Times, all the ten sectors in S&P 500 index composition suffered losses. Consumer discretionary, consumer staples, telecom and utilities segment suffered losses in range of 0.4 percent to 0.9 percent. Technology, financials, healthcare, industrials, materials and energy stocks fell from 1.1 percent to 1.8 percent range.
The CSI 300 index comprises stocks in Shanghai and Shenzhen. The index fell 12 percent in 2016 so far. China's central bank announced on Thursday (7 January 2015) that it would release $10.6 billion into the financial system. Chinese central bank already pumped in $20 billion on Tuesday.
The CSI 300 index for Chinese stocks tumbled seven percent and hit the lower circuit breaker for second time this week. Trading in Chinese bourse was suspended for 15 minutes after the CSI 300 index dropped by five percent, as reported by WVTM13.

The US markets suffered losses this week, but market mayhem on Chinese bourses was recorded following the Yuan devaluation for eighth time. The steep drop of CSI 300 index further highlights the weak performance in the Chinese economy, observe analysts in a report published by Deseret News.
