“It could be a deep correction ... It could be between 20 percent and 40 percent depending on the valuation,” said Pinto, the Wall Street bank’s co-president.

    He added that markets were “nervous” and if President Donald Trump goes beyond what he has already announced on steel tariffs, investors could react badly.

    U.S. stocks have been hit by concerns over the possibility of a global trade war following Trump’s remarks last week.
