Gold Tops $1300, USDJPY Tumbles After North Korean "H-Bomb Test" Threat Reports

After an initial slide on Kim's "deranged dotard" reaction to President Trump, both USDJPY and US equity futures are falling further after Yonhap reports, North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho says the “highest level of hard-line” countermeasure could refer to hydrogen-bomb detonation in the Pacific.

US equity futures are notably weaker...


And Gold just topped $1300 as USDJPY breaks below 112.00...


Of course, if recent threats and tests are anything to gop by tyhis is the perfect time to BTFN(uclear)A(rmageddon)Dip!

SPY is trading up after hours so this report seems like more doom porn. Kim will stick a dildo up his ass on Youtube before he pops off a nuke on anything but his own testing sites.

  This fucking shit is idiotic.   So the markets are so fucking dead and broken that the ALGO's are surviving off of the "Rocketman Rumor" trade every day?

Until the fat boy actually drops a bomb on some folks, the US won't do squat but more sanctions, bluff and bluster.  Even then, odds are the Chinese take the fat fucker out while we're still jawbonin about it.
