However, all three indices posted gains on the final day of the year, with the Dow rising by 1.1 per cent. Despite the late rally, Wall Street recorded its biggest annual loss since the global financial crisis. Geoffrey Yu of UBS Wealth Management expects further market volatility in 2019. Meanwhile, the UK’s FTSE 100 and the Stoxx Europe 600 both fell by 13 per cent during 2018, and the Shanghai Composite shed 25 per cent.
