Iran attack is not “Scary” for the market
The U.S stock market futures sharply lower after the previous day attack by Iran toward the U.S base in Iraq. However, the bearish pressure lifted and DJIA futures currently traded near its opening level. Earlier, Pentagon confirmed the attack of at least two bases in Iraq. So far no casualties reported.
It seems the market feels optimistic as the attack did not target any oil infrastructures and tension might slowly de-escalate after this.
