The markets have been volatile on account of ongoing uncertainties in the global financial markets due to the US threatening to impose tariffs on Chinese goods.

In an interaction with ET Now, Mark Matthews, Head of Investment Research, Julius Baer, said the stock markets may further fall if US and China don’t come to a trade agreement. If both the countries are unable to build the bridge, there can be no trade deal.

The markets were also down because of the selling by fopreign institutional investors. On Monday, while the FIIs sold around Rs 948.98 crore on a net basis, the net value domestic institutional investors was positive at Rs 89.98 crore. Selling in ETF was also one of the reasons, according to market experts.
