Scoreboard: China doubts

Markets on both sides of the Atlantic fell as investors fretted about a slowing Chinese economy, while base metals were corroded once again.

In US economic data, existing home sales fell by 1.8 per cent to a 5.05 million annualised rate in August, short of forecasts tipping sales near 5.20 million. And the national activity index fell from 0.39 to minus 0.21 in August.

The Group of 20 finance ministers say that they are close to the goal of introducing measures designed to boost global economic growth by 2 percentage points by 2018.
