Time now for an in-depth look at the market news this afternoon.
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 on this Friday.
Stocks on Wall Street were down for the most part, with the exception of the Nasdaq, which continues to reach new highs. What's the story in the global markets?
Korean stocks are lower today too, seeming to take their cue from Wall Street. What's happening in the domestic market?
The Korean currency has gained back some strength recently against the dollar, hovering now around the 12-hundred won mark. Today that went up a little bit, though. What do you see happening with the exchange rate?
