It is common knowledge that the North Korean leadership threatened to strike near the US military base in Guam. In response to the threats, Donald Trump spoke extremely emphatically. He stated that they would be met with fire and the fury like the world had never seen.

Geopolitical tensions have led to an unprecedented growth of the stock market volatility index CBOE VIX. In professional circles on Wall Street this index was called “the Indicator of fear”.
Over the past session, the stock market volatility index grew by 44%. At the time of the auction end its value was 16.04 points. The last time it was possible to observe such a high indicator value in November 2016.

Experts note that yesterday’s jump was the most significant in the history. A Chief analyst of the brokerage firm CT-Trade Andrey Mayorov notes that the jump of “the Indicator of fear” is an example of how dangerous can become dealing in securities on short-term volatility.
