    The Market’s Fear Gauge Flashes as Israel Considers Response to Iran

    The market’s fear gauge jumped again on Monday after The Wall Street Journal reported that Israel plans to punish Iran following its attack with drones and missiles over the weekend. The Vix, which measures implied volatility, hasn’t closed above 18 for 112 straight trading days, according to Dow Jones Market Data. Stocks initially rose in Monday morning trading, paring Friday's declines that were prompted by reports about Iran’s plan to attack Israel.

    US STOCKS-Wall St ends sharply lower on mixed earnings, sticky inflation, geopolitical fears

    U.S. stocks sold off on Friday after major U.S. banks' results failed to impress, capping a week marked by market-moving inflation data, evolving expectations for U.S. Federal Reserve policy, and looming geopolitical tensions. "When we look at what's happened in the macro space, inflation has taken a turn for the worse and that has put more pressure on companies to deliver this earnings season," said Mike Dickson, head of research at Horizon Investments in Charlotte, North Carolina. JPMorgan Chase & Co, the biggest U.S. bank by assets, posted a 6% profit increase but its net interest income forecast fell short of expectations.
