Well Kim Jong-un has blinked as he has now said he will wait before sending missiles towards the US Pacific territory of Guam. He said he was prepared for “the enveloping fire at Guam”, but he said he would watch what “the foolish Yankees” do before taking a decision.
I have warned that the risk was too great for Kim and the most likely reason he has blinked is because his missiles are not ready to really pull off that target. Secondly, if the US shoots them out of the sky, he will look like a fool and then we could see a regime change.
It is interesting how Gold closed precisely on the reversal and did not elect it. The markets somehow know more than opinions.
