(Bloomberg) -- A global equities benchmark has fallen precipitously close to oversold territory following a selloff in risk assets this month.

The gauge has lost nearly 4% in April, on track for the first monthly decline since October, as waning Federal Reserve easing bets and escalating Middle East conflict sapped the appeal of equities.
