The German index Dax had recently recovered, but now the course could be set new. September is generally considered to be a weak month on the stock market, plus the intensification of the trade war between the US and China. On Monday evening (17.09.18) US time, Donald Trump had announced to impose new, still substantial duties (200 billion dollars) against imports from China. So far, the Dax was unimpressed by it, he opened on Tuesday (18.09.) Even with a slight upward trend. Market observers, however, are highly skeptical.
