US stock dropped sharply along with Asian stocks which can be a warning signal that a US recession could be on the horizon.

Finance and banking were the key drag in loosing on the Sensex. The major losers who lost the value of their stocks to more than 100 points, they were HDFC and index heavyweight RIL. After suffering two defeats, British Prime Minister Theresa is trying to get the deal done, including a no-deal Brexit to Brextension and even exit from Brexit.

Thus, investors lapped up safer assets amid fear of a slowdown in the global economy and recession fears in the US. The yield curve inverted on Friday since 2007 which is really the question of concern for investors. This came with the fear of a recession in the US market.

For India though, the low-interest rates and weak inflation globally are actually favorable for the domestic bond market amidst these global uncertainties and volatility.
