The world's major stock exchanges opened today at a low level after they knew Apple's revenue cuts, which contributes to the already existing weakness due to fears that global economic growth will slow down.
The first cut in Apple's revenue forecast for nearly 12 years has led to a drop in prices on European stock exchanges today, as the most affected technology sector, with chip makers supplying the iPhone maker by force.
Technology div declined its forecast for the first quarter of 2019 to $ 84,000 million, falling below the range of $ 89,000 million to the estimated $ 93,000 million.
Apple has blamed a number of downsizing factors, including weaknesses in the Chinese economy and disappointing iPhone revenue.
The news has raised fears of slowing global growth, as well as the effects of trade tensions between the United States and China on corporate profits.

On the other hand, German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said in an interview published today that withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union represents an economic risk, although he added he expects continued growth in Germany.
