LAST UPDATE 22:20

The Dow Jones is expanding its profits, while the broader S&P 500 is trying to secure the positive sign, as investors try to regain some of the lost ground from the heavy losses of the previous days, although the climate remains fragile after the weak macro announced today in the US and China, bringing back to the forefront concerns about the outlook for the global economy.
