    From vs Of

    Dear Teachers

    I am not sure if I should use FROM or OF in the following sentence, and the reason behind. And, should I use THEs in the places underlined. Please advise.

    With the very real concerns of the contagion from/of recurring Eurozone debt crisis, China's deceleration and a weekening US recovery, it seems that macro events have become far more important to the short-term performance of US capital markets than fundamental factors since 2008.

    Did you write this sentence yourself in the first place?

    It doesn't make a great deal of sense to me.

    I have no idea what any of it means, but as far as the articles and prepositions are concerned, I have marked what I would use above. Note the correct spelling of "weakening".
