The Australian sharemarket has shed 6.3 per cent since reaching a record high of 7,197.2 points on 20 February, slashing its capitalisation by $136bn. Richard Coppleson of Bell Potter believes that a further sell-off is likely amid growing concern about the spread of the coronavirus beyond mainland China. Wall Street and Asian sharemarkets have also retreated, while the Australian dollar fell to an 11-year low in local trading on 26 February.
