Global Indices:

Asian stocks slipped on Thursday after weak U.S. data compounded worries over plunging copper prices and the health of the world economy, while a bounce in crude oil failed to calm anxiety over a supply glut that has seen prices collapse in recent months.

U.S. stocks fell for a fourth day on Wednesday as a World Bank forecast fuelled concerns about global economic weakness and copper prices sank, although a late-day rebound in energy shares left the market well off its lows after a volatile session.

European shares sank on Wednesday in big volumes, knocked down by worries over the pace of global growth that were fuelled by grim U.S. retail sales data and cuts to the World Bank’s economic forecasts.
