Trump strikes Syria, stocks plummet

SPX News by Newsroom on 21:31 April 06, 2017 EST
The US has, reportedly, launched a missile against a base in Syria this Thursday evening.

The SP500 index has shed around 20 points in a matter of minutes after the news flash.

The dollar remains steady against EUR and GBP but loses some value against the yen safe haven.


Main indexes recover some ground following the sudden dip. The SP500 trades now at 2345 after falling from 2360 to 2340 in a matter of minutes though market jitters remain.
