Giving the markets jitters, struggling German banking giant Deutsche Bank AG DB hit a new 52-week low of $11.23 on Monday, closing down 7% to $11.85 on the NYSE, marking the lowest level in decades. The price movement reflected investors’ concern that the bank may raise capital to settle the potential $14-billion accord with the U.S. Department of Justice (“DoJ”) related to mortgage practices.
