September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are in a position to close lower on Monday after giving back earlier gains. The initial selling pressure was fueled by Hong Kong’s closing of its airport to departures due to a tenth day of civil arrest in the country. Investors are becoming concerned that China is going to intervene to stop the violence.

AT 20:52 GMT, September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading at 7570.50, down 89.75 or -1.17%.

Selling was further driven by another steep drop in global bond yields. This was caused by forecasts from several major Wall Street calling for slower growth and a possible U.S. recession.
