Trump says talks between North Korea and South Korea wouldn't happen but for his doing

US president Donald Trump on Twitter (yup, he's at it again)


This time he's claiming credit for border talks between North Korea and South Korea that took place yesterday.

But at least he has some sense to identify it being a good thing. Putting his ego aside, some form of acknowledgement away from an all-out nuclear war is a positive thing for markets - but not like equity markets are in dire need of that right now. Just look at how European equities are faring today:

  • Eurostoxx +1.1%
  • Germany's DAX +1.0%
  • UK's FTSE +0.04%
  • France's CAC 40 +1.1%
  • Italy's FTSE MIB +1.6%
  • Spain's IBEX +1.3%
