    Foreign investors have been selling W1.79 trillion worth of KOSPI stocks and W335 billion worth of Kosdaq stocks for seven days running (US$1=W1,138).

    The capital flights was triggered by the continuing U.S.-China trade war, currency jitters in emerging markets, and surging interest rates on American treasury bonds.
