Well, Kim fired another missile.
Speculation has been building for days, and at this point, we’re all becoming kind of numb to it.
we have a Kim sighting, appropriately by a "Dong"…

But nevertheless, here are the headlines:
- North Korea Seen to Have Fired Missile, Japan Says
- S. KOREA HOLDS EMERGENCY MEETING ON N. KOREA MISSILE: YONHAP
- NORTH KOREA’S MISSILE MAY HAVE LANDED IN JAPAN’S EEZ: NHK
- U.S. HAS DETECTED NORTH KOREA BALLISTIC MISSILE LAUNCH: DAVIS
Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis says they’re still trying to determine if this was (another) ICBM.
He’ll “have more information for you soon.”
Trump has been informed, apparently, which means he’s probably mulling whether this is a good time to boost his poll numbers by wiping Pyongyang off the face of the map.
So far, markets aren’t reacting.
Or actually, maybe that’s not entirely true. Here’s something amusing that hit with the headline:
Do Dip Buyers Like North Korea Missile Headlines?
A little jitter in markets there as a headline appears that North Korea appears to have fired a missile. No follow up yet (as to where it has gone), and it appears that someone’s used to opportunity to JBTD.
As you can see, the only question worth asking is this: “Do Dip Buyers Like North Korea Missile Headlines?”
