Major world events that happened in 2019 that affected the stock markets

Brexit: In March 2019, The United Kingdom was scheduled to leave the European Union. However, the deadline was extended multiple times which affected global financial markets and led to heightened volatility.

US-China trade war continues: The trade tensions between the United States and China continued to escalate in 2019. Both countries imposed tariffs on each other's goods, impacting global trade and causing uncertainty in financial markets.

Hong Kong protests: Major protests erupted in Hong Kong in June 2019. What initially started as a protest against a proposed extradition bill, grew into a broader pro-democracy movement. This led to significant disruptions and clashes with authorities.

Rival ride-hailing companies go public: Two of the most notable tech disrupters, Uber and Lyft, hit the stock exchange for the first time. Uber had one of the largest IPOs in history. Even though it raised over $640m, its stock debut faced some challenges, and the company experienced a decline in share price following the initial offering. Lyft faced the same issue shortly after.
