Time now for an in-depth look at the market news on this Friday.
And for that, I'm joined on the line by Mr. Daniel Yoo, global strategist at Yuanta Securities.
Mr. Yoo, thank you for making time this afternoon.
Stocks on Wall Street were higher on Thursday. Employment numbers coming in better than market expectations. The Nasdaq setting another all-time high. What's the story in the global markets?
The Korean markets are higher today too, taking their cue from Wall Street. The KOSPI is actually now back to where it was last year. Tell us about the local markets.
The dollar index has come down significantly in recent weeks, so the Korean won has come back down to about 12-hundred to the dollar. Where do you see the exchange rate going?
