Good morning,

Reading the news this morning, I expected markets to be a bit down-trodden with the recent North Korean missile issue. However, it seems that FTSE, DAX, CAC40 and IBEX (European including UK) are down significantly more than US or even asian indices.

While I welcome stock markets moving down as well as up, I like to try to understand why.

Re-visiting the news, all I can see is that EU is not rushing to offer UK everything on a silver platter, but this barely qualifies as news these days.

Any suggestions for the changes of the day?
