‘Recession fear’ KOSPI and KOSDAQ break new lows every day… Exchange rate exceeded 1300 won

The KOSPI and KOSDAQ indexes recorded year-end lows for two days in a row due to net selling by foreign investors.

The fact that the index was lowered on that day was largely due to the simultaneous selling of individuals and foreigners.

Foreigners started net selling for five consecutive trading days from the 17th to this day. In this month alone, foreigners have sold more than 5 trillion won of domestic stocks.
