FTSE sell-off gathers strength on North Korea fears

  • Investors looked for cover after strong words by President Trump causing Japan’s Nikkei to drop

Keeping up his tough talk, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's government should "get their act together" or face the consequences, and suggested that his earlier threat to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea was too mild.

Tensions with North Korea appear to have finally shaken the confidence of USA investors, after the S&P 500 opened 0.8% lower, threatening to end its 15-day streak with a closing streak of more than 0.3%, a 90-year record.

The VIX, the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index, which measures market expectations for swings in stock prices and traders use as a fear gauge, closed the day on Thursday at 16.04, its highest close since the day of the USA presidential election in November.

The president said "things will happen to them they never thought possible" should Pyongyang attack the US or its allies.

At the latest COMEX auctions, gold price ascended $1.90 to $1,292 an ounce, and silver price grew $0.02 to $17.09.
