Stock markets take dive

It was a worldwide share sell-off again on Tuesday across Europe and Asia, but signs of steadiness have started to emerge thanks to a stable finish on Wall Street.

Investors kept their nerve at the end of trade, with the markets mixed at close after sharp falls of 3 percent earlier in the session.

But this was not the case in Europe. The FTSE and the DAX were both down around 2.5 percent, in Russia, the RTS has closed down 6 and-a-half percent, at an 8 month low.
