Time now for an in-depth look at the market news on this Monday.
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, thank you for coming on today.
Stocks on Wall Street closed higher last Friday, all three main indices. The S&P by almost 9 tenths of a percent, the Nasdaq by 7 tenths. Asian markets are down today. What's the story in the global markets today?
In Korea today, the KOSPI started out higher then there was a big dip mid-morning. In the end it was up. The KOSDAQ also higher. Tell us about the local markets.
It's the start of a new week, Professor. What's on your radar this week?
