Event Watch

North Korea's hydrogen bomb test is creating worries for India. So far this week, Korea's tensions were on the top of the table for most of the economies, especially India. India on the other side is hoping that China will condemn North Korea's nuclear test but North Korea is becoming a threat after gaining expertise through its nuclear and missile tests. Pakistan is pushing its shoulders hard and expanding its nuclear and missile arsenals, already overtaken India in the number of nuclear warheads. Geopolitical uncertainties are going to drive the market in coming days for sure.
