11.13.2019 European shares retreated from four-year highs on Wednesday, as a highly anticipated speech by U.S. President Donald Trump gave scant clues on the progress of a trade deal with China, and as anti-government protests in Hong Kong raged on, denting sentiment. Banks with significant exposure to Hong Kong such as HSBC (L:HSBA) and Standard Chartered (L:STAN) lost 2% and 1.5%. Downbeat earnings from Dutch bank ABN Amro (AS:ABNd) also hurt the banking sector (SX7P), which fell 2.2%. Parts of the Asian financial hub were paralyzed as the months-long unrest continued.
