+++ Exchange ticker +++ – North Korean conflict drives Swiss investors News

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017 | Economy

The Swiss Market Index (SMI) is trading at a drop of 0.7 percent at 8803 points and is thus heading for the fifth loss day in a row. The North Korean conflict is causing concern among investors. Dictator Kim Jong Un launched another ballistic missile that flew over Japan this time. A new escalation stage was reached, as a rocket flew over Japan for the first time without notice.
All SMI titles start in the loss zone. The insurers are particularly under pressure. The further price development of Zurich (-1.6 percent) and Swiss Re (-1.7 percent) will probably depend heavily on the extent to which the insured losses from the storm actually fail. Experts expect insured real estate losses in billions.
SGS (-0.9 per cent) also surpassed above-average on week-end. The Geneva Group is also active in the oil and gas sector and "Harvey" has met with Texas an important area for this sector. UBS and CS (-1.3 percent), the Nestlé heavyweights (-0.3 percent), Novartis (-0.8 percent) and Roche (-0.7 percent) are also under pressure.
Clariant (-0.5 per cent) had yielded significantly the day before, because in the trade after the storm "Harvey" was speculated about possible damage to the fusion partner Huntsman. Huntsman is headquartered in the city of Houston, hit hard by the hurricane. Schindler's participation certificates (-0.2 percent) are unlikely to benefit from an analyst vote by Goldman Sachs, whose analysts have marginally increased the price target for the lift and escalator manufacturer and confirmed their neutral rating.
In the broad market, various companies have presented half-year figures. For example, the real estate companies Allreal (-0.4 percent) and SFPI (+0.5 percent), the Tamedia publishing house (+0.4 percent), the Valartis financial group (+1.2 percent), the bottle manufacturer Vetropack (+0 , 6 percent), Zurich Airport (-1.3 percent), Feintool (-1.7 percent) and KTM (+0.4 percent), respectively.
According to the pre-market data of Bank Julius Baer, ​​the Swiss Market Index (SMI) is trading at 0.4 percent lower at 8825 points. On Monday, the lead index closed 0.5 percent lower. All SMI stocks are in the red, with the largest losses being recorded by ABB, Adecco, Credit Suisse, Givaudan and UBS (all -0.6 percent). Clariant (+ 0.1 per cent) is able to outperform the trend in the broad equity market.
North Korea fired a rocket on Tuesday morning, which flew over Japan and crashed into the Pacific. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe spoke of a serious threat. On the Asian exchanges, investors reacted with share sales. At the same time, the gold price climbed to its highest level since November 2016. Swiss francs, which were considered safe, were also in demand.
For example, the euro is about half a cent below the level of Monday evening with 1,1408 Swiss francs; In the low, the currency pair fell back to 1.1374. The US dollar traded at 0.9527 Swiss francs and at a low of 0.9490 at night on Tuesday.
Börsians in Europe are likely to keep an eye on the GfK consumer climate index for Germany in addition to the Asian situation. This week's talks on Britain's exit from Great Britain could also bring Brexit back into the forefront.

The prices of crude oil have become more expensive. The Brent variety is traded at $ 52.05 (+0.3 percent). WTI costs $ 46.80 (+0.5 percent). The oil prices have thus recovered a little from the losses of the previous days. On the oil market the tropical cyclone "Harvey" and the effects of flooding on the oil industry on the southern coast of the USA remain the dominant theme.

The price of gold continues to grow. An ounce costs 1316.41 dollars on Tuesday morning. This is the highest level since November last year. The geopolitical uncertainties associated with North Korea are causing increasing demand. The fact that the Federal Reserve was hardly able to comment on monetary policy at the symposium of central bankers in Jackson Hole also pushed the dollar and stimulated the demand for the yellow precious metal. This year, gold has already increased by 14 percent.
North Korea fired a rocket on Tuesday, which flew over Japan and later fell into the Pacific. The Nikkei index with the default values ​​in Tokyo dropped by 0.6 percent to 19,330 points. At times he was at the lowest level in almost four months. The broader topix fell 0.3 percent to 1595 counts. In Seoul, the Kospi Index lost more than one percent to 2343 points. The South Korean Ministry of Finance announced that it would stabilize markets if necessary. The euro was slightly down at 1.1967 dollars. The dollar dropped 0.4 percent to 108.80 yen.
