A profit warning from Intel last week triggered a worldwide stock market panic.
The chip giant issued an unprecedented estimate that its revenue and profits for the first quarter this year would be up to 10% lower than expected, because of a slow down in demand for PCs.
Stock markets reacted badly to the news, with a sharp drop in overall share prices across the globe. Technology prices were not the only ones affected in the decline - all shares suffered as analysts rethought their expectations for economic growth.
