Wall Street extended its three-week decline and tumbled to a seven-week low with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones losing more than 2% each. The combination of woes, including a delay in additional fiscal stimulus package, concerns over fresh lockdowns in Europe amid resurgence in COVID-19 cases, election uncertainty, and rising U.S.-China tensions weighed on investors’ sentiment.

Notably, the S&P 500 is on track for its first monthly loss since March. The benchmark is off more than 8% from its Sep 2 peak (read: 4 Safe ETF Bets as Global Stocks Tumble).

The fresh restriction in Europe has sparked fears over the global economic recovery and thus the stock market. The stay-at-home measures will again put pressure on airline, travel and leisure stocks while lift cloud computing, data center as well as online providers stocks. Investors should note that the first round of lockdowns in March had led the S&P 500 to suffer its worst monthly decline since the global financial crisis.

Further, a report that showed global banks moved allegedly illicit funds over the past two decades despite warnings from U.S. officials also contributed to the market decline. A new investigation by BuzzFeed and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists found that banks’ internal compliance officers flagged a total of more than $2 trillion in transactions between 1999 and 2017 as possible money laundering or other criminal activity.

Deutsche Bank (DE:DBKGn) DB appears to have facilitated $1.3 trillion of suspicious money in the files, while JPMorgan JPM disclosed $514 billion, per the report. Other banks mentioned in the investigation include HSBC Holdings (NYSE:HSBC), Standard Chartered (OTC:SCBFF) and Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK).

That said, the weak trading on Sep 21 led to a few winners with low-risk products but a number of losers from various corners of the investing space. Below we have highlighted some of the ETFs targeting those areas:
