Macroeconomic conditions seem to have caught up with the world’s markets last week, causing a cascade of down-trending indices around the globe.

Cboe Global Markets Inc. (BATS: CBOE) reports that all major indices and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) recorded in this series have, in the prior week, experienced downward trending price action. Since Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech on Friday, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA: SPY) has fallen more than 5%. Most of the drop occurred on Aug. 26.

Global markets and top cryptocurrencies have reflected the downward pressure scene on the S&P 500. Europe’s iShares Core MSCI Europe ETF (NYSEARCA: IEUR), for example, declined by 4.05% last week, and Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) dropped by 9.1%.

Providing a hint of optimism in last week’s market movements is Snowflake Inc. (NYSE: SNOW). The company, led by CEO Frank Slootman, won chart of the week following a positive reaction to its recently released earnings report.
