Last Week’s Recap – Geopolitical Tensions Stir the Markets

Early last week, tensions between North Korea and the US escalated after President Donald Trump pledged to attack North Korea. North Korea dismissed threatening comments from U.S. President Donald Trump and outlined plans for a missile strike near Guam, an area where the U.S. has a military base. Heightened tensions between the two nations sent investors looking for safe haven assets pushing the value of gold, the Swiss franc and the Japanese yen higher!**
