World Markets See Risk Aversion After U.S. Missiles Strike Syria
April 07, 2017 at 07:35 AM EDT
The world marketplace is reacting to the surprise U.S. military strike on a Syrian government air base after the Syrian government used poisonous gas on its civilians this week. Gold, U.S. Treasuries and oil prices initially shot higher and stock markets sold off. However, the markets have since settled down and are generally calm as the U.S. day sessions are set to open. Still, there is now keener risk aversion on this last trading day of the week. Traders and investors are awaiting the reaction from Russia and any follow-up action or comments from the Trump Administration. Most world stock markets were lower overnight and the U.S. stock indexes are pointed toward slightly lower openings when the U.S. day session begins.
