Investing.com - Investors are facing a stern test of nerves as growing tensions around North Korea and Syria ratchet up market risks.
Geopolitical concerns remained to the forefront after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday that Washington was looking at ways to pressure North Korea over its nuclear program.
North Korean state media warned the U.S. of a "super-mighty preemptive strike", saying don't "mess with us" as tensions between the two countries continued to rise.
Earlier this month two U.S. destroyers based in the Eastern Mediterranean fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base, which the U.S. said was in retaliation to Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons against his own people.
