Trump warns NKorea that USA is 'locked and loaded'

Stephen Colbert mocks Donald Trump with opening monologue on the Late Show

Bond prices hovered in positive territory in afternoon trading after fluctuating in the morning.

With the drop on the day, the ten-year yield extended the decline seen over the two previous sessions, falling to its lowest closing level in well over a month.

North Korea's only major ally China has urged Trump and Kim to avoid "words and actions" which could tip the troubled peninsula into war. The implications were clear, and while the tweet was in-line with Trump's overall bombast and rhetoric, his use of Twitter to fire a warning shot led actor and former White House Associate Director of Public Engagement Kal Penn to question whether he should still have access to the platform.

President Donald Trump says German Chancellor Angela Merkel does not speak for the US on North Korea.

"The president alone has the authority to launch nuclear weapons, the only restraint being the advice of senior advisors who might be present at the time of crisis, and Donald Trump has shown repeated contempt for informed and wise counsel", he continued in the letter.

Stocks slide on continued concern over tension between U.S. and North Korea
Publishing company News Corp (NWSA) reported fiscal fourth quarter earnings that beat estimates, although its revenues fell short. While the German DAX Index has edged down by 0.1%, the French CAC 40 Index and the UK's FTSE 100 Index are both down by 1%.

Paul Scholes questions Chelsea's sale of Nemanja Matic to Manchester Utd
Another former United forward, Wayne Rooney, will make his first Premier League start since rejoining boyhood club Everton when they host Stoke City at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Mattis: War with North Korea would be 'catastrophic'
"My mission, my responsibility is to have military options if you need it", Mattis said. There are about 29,000 American troops permanently stationed in South Korea.

The comments came after Trump unleashed a slew of fresh threats against North Korea on Friday, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded".

Following a series of off-the-cuff remarks, Trump doubled-down on his willingness to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if the secluded nation continues to test its nuclear capabilities and threaten the United States.

He also warned its leader Kim Jong-un that he hoped the dictator would find another path.

Developments regarding the situation with North Korea may remain in focus next week, although traders are also likely to keep an eye on reports on retail sales, housing starts, and industrial production.
