Hello traders everywhere. The DOW fell almost 150 pts this morning as tensions and worries over North Korea increased. U.S. stocks fell the most in a month, and the VIX reached its highest level since May as American allies warned North Korea against firing missiles toward Guam. Of course, the safe-haven assets advanced, with gold, the yen, and Treasuries all higher.
The NASDAQ is the big loser this morning, losing 1.38% and issuing a new red weekly Trade Triangle, indicating that a move to the sidelines is in order.
