Time now for an in-depth look at the market news this afternoon.
And for that, I'm joined on the line by Dr. Yang Jun-sok, professor of economics at the Catholic University of Korea.
Professor Yang, good to have you back on.
Stocks on Wall Street ended lower last Friday, in part because of these renewed tensions with China. This week, though, we'll be getting the growth figures for the U.S. economy in the second quarter. What's the story in the global markets, and your outlook?
Korean stocks significantly higher today. Tell us about that, and what was driving the trade here in Seoul?
We'll see more second quarter earnings coming out in the next few days. What's coming up this week, Professor?
