(AP) — Global stock markets are mostly lower amid anxiety over the economic fallout from surging coronavirus cases. Indexes in London, Tokyo and Frankfurt declined on Thursday while Shanghai advanced. On Wall Street, futures for the S&P 500 and Dow are down. Markets have edged back from record highs in recent days as investors become more cautious about the business impact of a continued rise in infections. Losses mounted after New York City said it would close its public schools to in-person learning.
