Pro-democracy activists blocked roads, trashed shopping malls and vandalized public transportation across Hong Kong on Sunday, while riot police fired tear gas to break up demonstrations, Reuters reports.

Why it matters: Sunday's protests mark the 24th consecutive weekend of anti-government protests, coming just two weeks before the Chinese-controlled city holds district council elections.

The massive losses in oil prices and U.S. and European equities were not countered by gains in traditional safe-haven assets on Wednesday.
