The Donald was quoted as saying today that if NK doesn't get its act together, "they will be met with fire and fury the likes of which the world has never seen". Hey, who doesn't love a good old fashioned straight from the heart military threat on a slow Tuesday afternoon in August? NK has reportedly miniaturized a nuclear warhead for an ICBM. Fun stuff.
The market dipped on the news and actually closed near the lows of the day. We'll have to see if this grows hair or not. The bears get thwarted at every turn, so my guess is that this too will pass, but maybe a little more selling first, we'll just have to see.
