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 as always for coming on.
China's parliament meeting in Beijing this week has proposed a hugely controversial national security law for Hong Kong. This is something it's wanted to do for a long time, but it's going to cause serious tensions with the U.S. and this has hit the region's stock markets. What's the story there?
Korean stocks are down today too, it seems also on China-related issues. What was driving the trade today?
These tensions are making safe haven assets like the U.S. dollar more attractive to investors. Today the Korean currency is quite a bit weaker against greenback. Where do you see the exchange rate going from here?
