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 coming on today.
Stocks on Wall Street were up overnight, partly on hopes for a coronavirus vaccine. The Nasdaq in particular was up 2-and-a-half percent to a new all-time high. What's the story in the global markets?
Korean stocks strongly higher today too. Is that just following on from Wall Street, or what's happening there?
Korea's exports in the first twenty days of this month were down about 13 percent from the same period last yet. That decline was led by semiconductors, cars and petrochemicals. What stands out to you in these numbers?
