Greenback soars as North Korean tensions decline
On Tuesday, revenues versus the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc provoked a broad ascend in the US currency, backed by an evident easing of the tensions around North Korea, which pushed capital towards Switzerland as well as Japan the previous week.
The Japanese yen and the franc had both rallied because Pyongyang and Washington ramped up their military threats following the imposition of fresh sanctions on the Koreans via the United Nations just 10 days ago.
Nevertheless, on Tuesday, a North Korean state media informed that the country’s leader Kim Jong Un had delayed his decision on launching missiles towards the US Pacific territory of Guam. Financial markets viewed it as another indication that the threats were absolutely rhetorical.
The US currency gained 0.7% leaping to 110.42 yen, returning to levels last observed before Donald Trump promised the previous week that North Korea would be met with fury and fire if it dared to threaten America.

Congratulations! Gold has just opened a new era... or, rather, reopened...
