    Chinese regulation change hits US markets

    MarketWatch
    Today's announcement of a Chinese regulatory change that will allow fund managers to short equities has caused US stock futures to take a dive. According to MarketWatch's Barbara Kollmeyer, Dow futures slid 125 points, or 0.7%, to 17,916 while those for the S&P 500 index dropped 12.80 points (0.7%) to 2,088. Futures for the Nasdaq-100 index lost 37 points (0.8%) to 4,378.25. The regulation change also impacted European bourses, where Grexit-related concerns and a strong euro were already weighing on stocks. The Stoxx Europe 600 index slumped by 1.37% in today's trading. Kollmayer says that the move is widely regarded as an attempt by Chinese authorities to cool down what many view as overheated markets.
