North Korea Tensions Hit Global Stock Markets

US STOCKS-Wall Street swings lower after Trump warns North Korea

"European shares are. continuing their slide on the back of ever more increasing tensions between North Korea and the United States", added analyst Markus Huber at City of London Markets. And when the S&P 500 breaks a streak of 50+ trading days without a 1%+ up move, the index actually averages a decline over the next month and a gain of just 0.86% over the next three months.

The strength on Wall Street was partly due to bargain hunting, with traders picking up stocks at reduced levels following the pullback seen over the past few sessions.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 14 points, a gain of 0.07 percent, the Nasdaq composite rose almost 40 points or 0.64 percent and the S&P 500 gained 3 points or 0.13 percent.

The North's latest threat came as US President Donald Trump warned Tuesday that North Korea will be met with "fire and fury" should it stick to ambitions to hit the US with ballistic missiles.

"Since these are the stocks that have been in the spotlight the most, they tend to have the most volatility upwards and downwards", said Chris Bertelsen, chief investment officer of Aviance Capital Management in Sarasota, Florida.

The local currency was trading at 1,147.55 won against the USA dollar, down 5.55 won from the previous session's close. Australia was off 1.2 percent.

The indicated USA market moves reflect a selloff across global stock markets Friday.

Wholesale gasoline dropped 2 cents to $1.60 a gallon, while heating oil shed 2 cents to $1.63 a gallon. Copper rose 4 cents to $2.94 a pound. Rival Advanced Micro Devices was also down 2.6 percent.

CURRENCIES: The dollar fell to 109.96 yen from 110.48 yen late Tuesday. Disappointing company earnings also helped pull the market lower, with consumer-focused companies and technology stocks among the biggest decliners. The euro rose to $1.1774 from $1.1752.
